Creating An Organized & Functional Laundry Room

Your laundry room needs to be a functional space that allows you to wash and dry your clothes and linens. That doesn’t mean you can’t create a stylish room that makes it easier to want to spend time in to get through your mountains of laundry. So when it comes to designing the perfect laundry room, what do you need to keep in mind?


Firstly, you need to consider the layout of the room and the placement of items. Regardless of what you need to fit in, you need to make sure it is laid out in a way that makes your life easier.

Dirty washing hampers close to the washing machine and a care area next to the dryer that allows you to fold clothing to be put away in the appropriate room. Again, if you are lucky enough to space in this room, consider how you will dry items such as using a clothes airer so as not to shrink anything in your dryer. Have all of your applicable accessories placed in ideal locations, i.e., shelving with detergents above the washing machine and lint balls and dryer sheets on top of the dryer, and so on.

Use Wall Space

Your walls aren’t just for images. You can use this space to clear items off the floor. How about a hanging unit to hold your ironing board so it is off the floor when not in use and you can maximize space.

A coat rack can give you added drying and hanging space for longer items such as housecoats, outdoor coats, and even blankets without them being in the way on the floor. Mount airers on the wall can be folded away or even on the ceiling to increase drying areas.

Brighten up your laundry room by adding Laundry Room Wall Decals and pictures to give the space some personality.

The key to a successful laundry room is to make sure you do everything you need to in it. This means utilizing the space by creating an organized system using shelving, boxes, and storage to give everything a home to make it less cluttered and easy to navigate. You can easily find what you need, check supplies, and keep the laundry room tidy.

Add a Closet

A closet gives you a space to put away all of your laundry appliances. This lets you store laundry bags, dress and suit covers, and more without damaging them as they’re safely hung away in a closed cabinet. Irons, steamers, accessories, and excess detergents can be stored away in cupboards. For maximum usage, why not add rails too for hangers when not in use.

Make The Most Of Gaps

Do you have small gaps in between appliances or units? They don’t have to be unsightly and wasted. Use this area to store things such as collapsible laundry baskets, step ladders, cleaning accessories, and more. Get creative with what you can fit in previously unused gaps to help you to fit more in the room.
