Declutter Your Laundry Room
Organize by Zone
Don't disrupt wash day with an unruly laundry room. Spacious L-shape cabinetry helps unify each step of the wash cycle and allows for plenty of counter space. Plus it houses a built-in utility sink, washer, and dryer.
An island on wheels provides both a surface for folding clothes and a hidden storage space for kids' art supplies, detergent, or clothespins. Pull the cart near the sink to serve as a second landing spot for clothing that must be hand-washed.
Conceal a Circuit Breaker Box
Guests will never guess that this magnetic chalkboard actually hides your home's circuit breaker box. Use the hinged message center to hang to-do lists, children's artwork, or coupons for laundry supplies.
Hang a Curtain Rod
Declutter rolls of tape and ribbon with an easily accessible spring-loaded curtain rod. Colorful canvas bins within the room's rolling cart sort craft supplies and projects.
Smart Storage Tricks for Small Laundry Rooms
A little cleverness goes a long way in styling small quarters. Utilize bins, baskets, shelves, and wall-mount solutions to organize even the littlest of laundry rooms.
Incorporate Your Ironing Board
Maximize your laundry room's potential by installing a drop-down ironing board behind a paneled door. The shallow compartment includes electrical outlets, hooks, and even a shelf for spray bottles.
Try Trays and Glassware
See-through acrylic trays are a simple way to gather detergent, soaps, and brushes. Keep powdered detergent clump-proof by storing it in an airtight glass canister.
Divide and Conquer
Two hatches cut into the countertop flip open to reveal laminate-lined cubbies that separate white and dark clothing. The cabinet doors also swing open in the front, allowing for extra-easy access.
Repurpose your favorite glass votive holders into a caddy for clothespins. Store them near a collapsible, wall-mount drying rack for quick access when drying clothes.
Outfit the lower portion of your cabinets with pullout drawers. The protractible shelves ensure trouble-free retrieval of craft supplies and laundry products.
Store craft supplies, seasonal clothing items, and holiday decor in a stand-alone cupboard. Fixed shelves in the upper area house your most infrequently used items.
Consider Container Size
Keep clear, labeled boxes to just two sizes so all containers stack safely and attractively on shelves. Fill the smaller boxes with sewing supplies to use when mending is a must.
Label Bins and Baskets
Labeled canvas bins are a safe bet for storing winter hats, gloves, or other seasonal items. Divide extra bins with tabs to sort cards, tags, and other flat accessories by occasion and style.
