By Jaymi Naciri via Realty Times

Let's face it. Laundry is no fun. In fact, it's often counted among our most hated chores. But since running around in stinky, soiled clothes is not an option for most of us, it's gotta get done.

Which is why we're always thrilled to see rooms that make it feel like more of a yay! and less of a yuck!

"A laundry room doesn't have to be a dull and boring room where you just toss your dirty socks and t-shirts. The laundry room is a place where you can really show off your creativity," said Kimberly Grigg of Knotting Hill Interiors and Get Your Southern On.

Indeed, it can even be a luxurious space, said Advice on the House.

When decorating a home, there are endless possibilities to make each room a chic oasis. The laundry room can be upgraded to exude personality and design flair so it becomes a more enjoyable place to spend time in," they said. "From the color palette or patterns on the walls to the floors under foot and everything in between, decorating your laundry room with things that inspire productivity and tranquility can transform your tired, dull space into a room that feels luxurious, welcoming and relaxing."

In these 8 rooms, we might even be inspired to scrub out a few stains, fold everything real pretty, and actually see the bottom of the laundry basket.

1. The ample countertop and storage space, the glass-front cabinets, the glam lights…this laundry room has it all. But what really gets us is the double washer and dryer. Twice the capacity to get and keep everything clean? Oh. Yes.

2. Ummm, you had us at TV.

3. Glamorous and utilitarian? We'll take it. Something about the all-white palette and reflective surfaces make this space feel so tranquil that we wouldn't mind doing a load–or 10.

4. Then again, who says you can't have a little fun with color and pattern?

5. Is it weird that all that storage is making us a little flush? We love that there is a space for everything in this traditional space, including a pullout for dog food and built in bowls for puppy's food and drink.

6. Lacking space for a "real" laundry room but still want to create something with form and function? Hide it in a hallway.

7. Because why should kitchens and bathrooms have all the fun. Adding a little luxury to your laundry room makes it a place you don't mind hanging out for a while.

8. Look. At. All. That. Counter. Space.
