Storage Solutions for Your Laundry Room

Chances are you spend more time in your laundry room than you’d like. It makes sense to make the space as pleasant and appealing as possible. No one likes to do laundry in a dungeon. Storage solutions can change the overall look and feel of any laundry room.


Instead of one large hamper or a pile on the floor, consider purchasing different hampers for various needs. For example, you might purchase a hamper for every member in the family. A label maker or cute note card tied to the hamper can be used to identify the owner. Or you might assign a hamper to the different types of laundry. One hamper might be used to store clothes that need to be washed in cold. Another hamper can hold towels and linens.

Collapsible Drying Rack

A collapsible rack to dry line dry items can come in very handy. When you’re not using it, you can fold it and store it in a corner cabinet. When you need to dry delicates or cold wash items you can unfold it and stand it upright.

Detergents, Fabric Softeners, and More

Detergents and fabric softeners tend to get a bit messy. An easy to clean storage cart, bin, or shelf can be an extremely useful tool. Consider a wheeled cart with large shelves so you can organize your items. If it has wheels you can pull it out when you need it and tuck it away when you don’t. Another solution is a utility shelf. Attractive storage bins make it easy to store your detergent in an attractive and useful way.

Pocket Jackpot

What do you do with all of the items found in the pockets of jeans, jackets, and shirts? A clear jar can be a fun way to build an interesting collection of items. A simple mason jar is an easy storage solution. If you want to match a color scheme you can get crafty with a bit of decoupage.

Folding Station

It often makes good sense to fold the clothing right after it is taken from the dryer. A folding table and a hanging rack make the job easier. If you’re tight for space, you can find folding tables that mount to the wall. They fold up when they’re not in use.

Take a look around your laundry room and examine the space. How can simple storage solutions help you create efficient laundry solutions? How can you use storage to help add charm and visual appeal to your laundry room? A few simple steps and you can turn your laundry room into a fun, or at least mildly appealing, place to be.
