Organize your laundry room with these space-saving tips!
Laundry is a never ending monster that will quickly spiral out of control and consume your whole house. The best way to get a handle on laundry for your household is to develop a system and design your laundry room to facilitate your needs.
A re-design of your laundry room can be done in a really cost-effective way. This is a great room for repurposing materials, DIY, and thrift store finds.
Here are some tips to whip your laundry room into shape!
1. Stackable Washer and Dryer
If you need to save on space in your laundry room, try stackable laundry machines. They will use the space more efficiently and are smaller than traditional machines.
2. Sorting Bins
Use multiple bins to sort keep your laundry sorted. Pre-sorting clothes will save time and make it easy to throw a load in without too much bother.
3. Wall Storage
Maximize wall space with cabinets and shelves. Even if your laundry area is small, using vertical space will give you more flexibility.
4. Hanging Clothes Bar
Install a bar for hanging clothes in your laundry room for hanging or drying items.
5. Fold-out Ironing Board
A full-size ironing board takes up space and is unattractive to store. Try building your ironing board into a drawer, cabinet, or wall. It will fold out when you need it and be out of sight when you don’t.
6. Hide Your Machines
If you’re tired of staring at your laundry machines, try a simple tension rod and some fabric to create a stylish curtain. This will also add color and texture to your room.
7. Pop Of Color
A laundry room doesn’t have to be boring. Make it a room that you enjoy! Try an accent color or pattern to spice things up.
8. Folding Table
If you have the space, a folding area is a great feature for your laundry room, making it easy to keep clean clothes organized.
