Laundry Room Storage Solutions

Control clutter in your laundry room! Use these time-saving tips to keep an orderly, efficient wash room.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Laundry-Work Room

      A well-designed layout smartly blends a laundry room and hobby space. A front-loading washer, dryer, and utility sink fit neatly along one wall in this colorful multiuse room. Upper cabinets offer versatile storage for laundry and crafts supplies. A center table is as handy for folding clothes as it is for crafting.

    • Storage for Tight Spaces

      Because you can't afford to waste a sliver of space in a tiny laundry room, take storage as high as you can with shelving. Keep the design simple to prevent the room from feeling overcrowded.

      Tip: Reserve low shelves for frequently used items so they are easy to access.

    • Appliance Drawers

      Some manufacturers of washers and dryers thoughtfully provide storage drawers in the base of the appliance. If you're shopping for a new washer and dryer and your laundry room is short on space, keep this feature in mind.

    • Easy-Care Kits

      Corral clothes-care supplies in cute bins that clean up easily if anything drips or spills. Organize other household and laundry items by type in attractive containers and label them so you can find things quickly.

    • Transform Blank Walls

      Hang an ironing board on a sliver of blank wall or the back of the laundry room door to save valuable floor space. Mounting an ironing board holder to the wall is a simple solution for a cramped laundry room -- and wall-mount holders set up in seconds.

    • Mix Style and Function

      Vintage-look details and clever use of cabinetry give this spacious, open laundry room its cottage-style charm. Shelves encourage organization and let flea market accessories come alive, while upper and lower cabinetry provide practical storage for laundry supplies. A center island offers room to sort and fold without interrupting traffic flow.

    • Small-Space Laundry Closet

      A full-size laundry room might not be an option for some condos, apartments, and small homes. This stacked washer and dryer tucks away in a slim closet off of the kitchen and uses nearby cabinets for storage. Perforated door panels add visual interest and ventilate the laundry area while keeping the appliances out of sight.

    • In the Bag

      Gather each family member's socks and underwear in a separate mesh bag, then send the whole bag through the washer and dryer. When the cycle ends, each person can grab his or her bag to sort and put away.

    • Enlist a Turntable

      Whether you store laundry gear on a countertop or under the sink, using a turntable is an easy way to keep it accessible. Group items by purpose -- such as the postwash supplies shown -- for easy, sensible organization.

      Open Shelving

      Stash overflowing laundry baskets in open cubbies. They'll look tidy, and the air circulation will help prevent mildew and odor problems.

      Clear Canisters

      Economy-size boxes of laundry powder save you money, but wrestling with the large container every time you wash clothes can be a chore. Consider transferring manageable amounts into clear canisters that you can keep on an open shelf. They look pretty and show when you're getting low on supplies.

      Custom Storage + Work Surface

      If you're looking to install custom cabinets to make your laundry room beautiful and efficient, use a mix of cabinetry options. A combination of shelves and drawers provides versatility, which is key to well-organized storage. A countertop spanning the washer and dryer provides a work surface for sorting and folding garments.

      Slim Down

      Maximize storage in tight laundry spaces with a slender shelving unit. Designed to fit between the washer and dryer, the unit is perfectly sized for small jars and containers, and it neatly corrals everything within an arm's reach.

      A Solution with Style

      A space-saving stacked washer and dryer in this closet-turned-laundry area leaves plenty of room to install shelves for storage. If your laundry closet lacks a door, like this one, conceal it with a cute, colorful shower curtain suspended from a shower rod. The curtain solution hides the otherwise visible laundry room -- a definite plus when guests visit.

      Hang Time

      The secret to wrinkle-free clothes is hanging them up the moment the dryer buzzes. Extend hang space with an over-the-door rack or valet hook. This small version is perfect for drying undergarments and camisoles.

      Organize with Baskets

      Use matching baskets to organize laundry room necessities. Removable cloth liners protect the baskets from spills and can be washed as needed to keep them fresh. Use attractive boxes to store laundry room essentials, such as sheets or towels. Label the boxes so you can find what you need without lifting a lid.

      Shelf Helpers

      Put the space in your cabinets to better use with a hanging wire shelf unit that hooks onto a cabinet door. Gather laundry supplies in cute containers to organize the shelves in a smart and stylish way.
