Let’s face it: we spend a lot of time in our laundry rooms (whether we would like to or not!).
Combine the stress of continuously having load after load of laundry to contend with, in addition to a small space, and it’s easy to see why doing laundry can be so stressful.
We have some hacks that will elevate your small laundry room situation and hopefully make it a better experience all around.
- Use Baskets to Tuck Items Away
If you store extra paper towels, toilet paper, and other items in your laundry room, we recommend using baskets. Not only do baskets tuck items away so there is less clutter, but they look nice too.
Baskets can be found and many different home stores, and even online, so there are so many options out there that fit your taste and the décor of your laundry room.
- Add Wall Storage for Laundry Supplies
When you’re working with a small space, you need to use whatever space is available to you, and that includes the walls. You can use the walls in your laundry room to hang functional items, like wire baskets on them. These baskets can hold laundry supplies, like detergent, fabric softener, dryer sheets, and more.
You can also use these hooks to dry clothes on. There are so many possibilities when it comes to wall storage for laundry rooms.
- Put up Shelves for Added Storage
Most likely there are lots of empty spaces above your washing machine and dryer. Here is where you can install shelving that will house all your baskets and their contents. In a small space, this adds height to the room, effectively drawing your eye up and making the room look larger. It also gives you a functional storage space.
- For Even More Stage, Use the Back of Your Doors
This area of laundry rooms gets overlooked most of the time. But we have a great hack from you! Use this area to your advantage to store items like cleaning supplies. Look for storage solutions for closets. They work just as well on the back of a door.
Another way to do it is to simply just install a few hooks onto the back of the door for you to store things on.
- Hang a Drying Rack from the Ceiling
We have saved the best hack of all for last! Don’t you find that drying racks are not only unappealing to look at, but they also take up a lot of space? In a laundry room that’s already small, this isn’t a functional solution. The answer? Hang a drying rack from the ceiling!
For this hack, hang a ladder-like drying rack from the ceiling with chains! It’s not only super functional, but it keeps it out of sight. This works especially well if you hang-dry a lot of items like work shirts, blouses, and other delicate items.
