Organizing and storing your detergents, dryer sheets and other laundry essentials is the key to making the most of your laundry space. Having a place for everything will take the hassle out of laundry day and help bring together one of the busiest spots in your home.
Laundry Room Storage & Organization Ideas
Ready-to-assemble Cabinets and Countertops
A wall cabinet installed above the washer and dryer is ideal storage for this room as it utilizes otherwise unused wall space and keeps items out of reach of young children and pets.
If you have a front-load laundry pair with front control panels, consider installing a base cabinet beside the duo and extending the countertop over both machines to increase storage and create a large surface for sorting, treating and folding.
No space for a cabinet, not a problem. The Home Depot carries work surfaces that are made specifically to be installed over your front-load/front-control laundry pair. These convenient work surfaces have recessed compartments to provide storage space for dryer sheets and other laundry supplies.
Shelves, Drying Racks and Hampers
Multi-purpose shelves can be installed at any height to maximize accessibility and help keep the floor clear of supplies. Wall-mount or freestanding drying racks are convenient for hang-to-dry pieces, and many models collapse for flat storage when not in use.
Other accessories like hampers and washer/dryer pedestals with drawers also help keep the laundry room clutter-free.
Whether your motivation is one of environmental awareness or delicate fabric care, hang-drying space is a must-have. Speed up drying times by heading outdoors and taking advantage of warm weather. Heavy-duty clothesline kits are meant for outdoor use and offer ample drying room. Retractable clotheslines can provide a temporary or permanent drying space — an ideal solution for balconies and modest laundry rooms.
