It’s easy to overlook the laundry room, but considering how much time you spend there, it’s understandable that you’d want to improve your laundry room.
Laundry, for sure, is a major hassle. In addition to that, it’s a never-ending one! If you’ve got a well-organized laundry room that’s both visually appealing and functionally effective, the process of doing laundry can be made more bearable. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, you’ll find laundry detergent and dryer sheets all over the place before you know it.
This space, which is often overlooked, can be transformed into its best self with these tips:
1. Add a Few Cupboards
Make use of any wall space you have above your washer and dryer by installing cupboards. Stain removers, detergent, dryer sheets, and other frequently used things should be kept on the lowest shelf because the washer and dryer will make it difficult to access anything put higher up.
2. Create a Countertop Using Countertop Materials
You can fold laundry on a DIY countertop if your front-load washer and dryer are side-by-side front-loaders. to keep your detergent from straying too close to the edge and bouncing off during the spinning cycle.
3. Storage Space in the Closets
The first hack may appear basic, but you’ll be shocked at how much space you gain after you implement it.
The time has come to organize your cleaning products. This will make cleaning your laundry area a lot simpler.
4. Laundry Supplies Storage on the Wall
Pegboards are useful because they may be used to hang a wide variety of objects. Our laundry room required a place for all the small objects that can be difficult to locate, such as scissors, spray bottles, and lint rollers.
5. To make a drying rack, you can use crib springs.
There’s a good chance you’re not making use of the overhead space in your home for laundry. This is a brilliant idea. Simply suspend the mattress springs from the ceiling.
You now have enough space to hang your wet clothes to dry. If you’re short on wall space in your laundry room, this is a great option.
6. Use containers that are eye-catching.
Small and big glass containers are ideal for storing laundry essentials including detergent, fabric softener, and dryer sheets. With no closet to hide clutter, this might be an extremely effective way to organize your laundry room.
7. Label Everything!
Having a laundry room full of bins and baskets necessitates the use of labels to keep track of them. In the future, it’ll be easier to find things.
Labeling the items in your home can help it appear more orderly and well-organized. Look at this picture, isn’t it beautiful?
8. It’s a good idea to keep your cleaning supplies all in one place.
A cleaning caddy with a handle like this one is ideal for storing cleaning goods in the laundry room. As a bathroom cleaner, I prefer to use this one because it’s lightweight and easy to transport.
9. Lost Sock Jar
What do you do with a bunch of socks that you no longer wear? Use a transparent cookie jar and a custom label to make a unique gift.
10. Folding Table that Floats in the Air
Keep the hampers out of the way so you have a place to fold your laundry. Set up a floating table like the one seen in the image above.
11. Organize your life with a magnetic organizer.
Your washer and dryer both have large magnetic surfaces that can be used to their full potential in the laundry room. With a magnetic rack like this one, you’ll always be able to find the laundry soap (and whatever else you frequently use) right at your fingertips.
12. Make notes on the gadgets you use every day.
This is a brilliant idea. Using dry erase markers will prevent your clothes from shrinking or being ruined in the dryer if you’re relying on family members to help with the laundry (and them).
13. Clothespins are a great way to label storage bins.
The laundry room (or any) shelves would benefit greatly from the use of inexpensive baskets. However, things can get a little muddled if it isn’t clear where each item goes. Add labels with clothespins to avoid the problem.
14. Between your machines, place a storage unit.
Put a cabinet in the space between your washer and dryer for more storage.
There are rolling carts that can fit in even the tiniest of spaces, even if you’re short on storage space.
15. In a jar, store loose change.
The question is, where do you put the change you find in the washer? Make a wall-hanging jar for your spare change that is both beautiful and functional.
Buying a bespoke one from Etsy is an option if you don’t have the time to construct one yourself.
