Doing the laundry can seem like a never-ending, perpetually messy task. However, with a little creativity, your laundry room can be just as organized as the rest of your home. From unique hardware to smart storage solutions, these 4 creative and space-saving laundry room design trends can help transform your laundry room into an oasis that you’ll want to show off to your guests.
Mobile Ironing Board (With Extra Storage!)
Put your DIY skills to the test by transforming a kitchen island cart from The Home Depot® or changing table into a mobile ironing board for your laundry room. By adding wheels and an ironing board on top of the island or table, you can take advantage of any additional storage underneath while being able to move your ironing from one room to the next.
Butcher Block Countertops and Shelves
One of the best parts of butcher block counters is the ability to DIY. Installing butcher block counters or shelves is a great way to bring character into your laundry room. Commonly seen in the kitchen due to its durability, butcher blocks can be sealed and sanded so you’ll never have to worry about water or detergent spills. Try installing a butcher block folding station over your washer and dryer for the perfect place to pre-treat and fold clothes.
Wire Wall Storage for Laundry Supplies and More
The secret to success in a small laundry room is using all the available space that you can. Start using wall space to house essentials by hanging a wire storage rack that can be used to store detergent, dryer sheets, or any mismatched socks. Hooks are a great option for hanging any delicate or small items that need a space to dry.
Hang a Drying Rack from the Ceiling
After taking advantage of your wall space, it’s time to look to the ceiling! The ceiling is such an overlooked spot when it comes to creating storage solutions in a small space. If you’re hand-washing a lot of your clothes or have delicate items that can’t go in the dryer, a hanging rack may be a smart investment for you. DIY this project by building or using an older ladder as a drying rack and hanging it from the ceiling with some chains.
Incorporate Fun Baskets and Storage Containers
A great way to add some color to your laundry room is by storing your supplies in baskets, containers, and jars. If your laundry room has been an unseen corner of your house, you’ll enjoy doing laundry more if the space looks neat and colorful. Try using different fabric baskets to sort dirty clothes instead of creating piles on the floor to keep your laundry room looking organized.
