How to Make the Most out of Your Laundry Room

By: Staff Published: April 8, 2019

It’s safe to say that we all dread laundry day, and dealing with a disorganized laundry room can make the task even more unpleasant. We’re here to help with some quick tips that will instantly revamp your space and help you get organized:

1. Invest in hanging space.

If you have an unused wall in your laundry room, consider installing a hanging rod with open shelving to give you more storage. You can use this to store folded clothes or towels and as a drying rack for garments that have just been washed.

Maximize a small laundry area with a wire shelf that doubles as hanging space.

2. Use decorative jars as storage.

Put laundry room essentials like detergent, baking soda and other household items in decorative glass jars to instantly upgrade your space. It will make the things you need easier to find and help your laundry room look more polished.

4. Separate the space with curtains.

If your laundry room is tiny, consider using curtains to create more space and separate your laundry room into different areas. It can also act as a room divider and hide unsightly utilities when guests come over.

5. Create more storage space with fabric bins.

Fabric bins can instantly create more storage space in your laundry room by giving all of your supplies their own place. Stow them on easy-to-reach shelves and mix and match colors for a polished look that fits your style.
