Laundry Storage and Organization Buying Guide

Laundry can be a thankless and seemingly never-ending task. It takes much dedication—and can't be crossed off that to-do list for good—but there are ways to make it easier and just a little more pleasant. For starters, look to laundry storage and organization to help bring a bit of calm and beauty to this regular chore.

Types of Laundry Storage and Organization

Types of Laundry Storage and Organization

Think about all the ways in which doing laundry can be frustrating. For example, sorting darks from whites—if there were easier ways to keep the categories separate, then you might shave a bit of time off your chores. Drying delicate items is often a vexing proposition, but there are easy-to-find items that make it easier on you and your clothes. As you outfit your laundry space, look at these types of laundry storage and organization methods: carts, drying racks, bags and sorters, and laundry hampers.

Carts

Laundry carts are great for moving clothes from place to place. These wheeled contraptions often have different compartments to separate types of laundry.

Product Features

Product Features

Fortunately, laundry storage and organization pieces are not that complex. There are few moving parts, no electronics, and a limited palette of materials. Even so, a few key product features are essential to consider as you select the pieces that work for you. Those include size and material. Here's a helpful reminder as you get started.

Size

The laundry storage and organization items you choose depend in large part on the space you have to include them. There are typically many options for each type, sized to fit even small areas.

Material

Laundry storage and organization pieces are made from a range of materials, but mostly plastic and fabric. Built-in items may be made of sturdier pieces such as wood or laminate.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

The simplest of household tasks—including laundry—are often made easier and more enjoyable with storage and organization items. Small investments in the best pieces for your needs will make this work go more smoothly. That's why it's important to review just a few purchase considerations—storage and flexibility—before selecting the right pieces for you, your family, and your home.

Storage

Many laundry spaces have dedicated spots to hold baskets, carts, and hampers. If not, then your laundry storage and organization items will need places to live when not in use. That may mean finding items that can retract or slide away.

Flexibility

The best laundry storage and organization pieces expand at will and based on need. That may mean additional compartments for sorting, or drying racks that can pull out for extra sweaters.
