More Tips for Small Laundry Room Designs and Layouts

Having a small laundry room can be a real pain in the neck. If you don't have much space to work with, it can be difficult to organize, fold, and clean all in the same space. Check out the tips below for some creative ways to use your small space:

1. Use the walls and door space. Using the walls and the back of the doors for hanging organizers can be a real life saver. Instead of building shelves that take up space, consider utilizing hanging drying racks or building your own.

2. Always build up. Make sure that you are stacking whenever you can. While it might not be an option to buying stacking washers and dryers, finding a way to stack baskets and storage are a must. Consider building a shelving system like the one featured above to hold your clean and dirty laundry.

3. Keep organized! Whether you keep your laundry baskets in your bedroom or your laundry room, be diligent about seperating clean from dirty and colors from whites whenever you can. This will help you avoid clutter from piled up laundry.

This is such a steal from those IKEA cabinets. It really transformed this room and while I don't know how much it costs, it is very functional though for the space and needs you have. If you have kids then you're looking at the best way to organise your laundry room. If you're alone in your apartment then you probably have the luxury of decorating your laundry baskets with twine or burlap.

This is exactly what I always think a laundry room needs and so I am so pleased that we have not yet made any cupboards or shelves for our laundry space. It is really easy to do too so thank you for the instructions, I am so looking forward to completing our laundry room.

I love how cute and organized this laundry room is! My laundry room feels like it's too small and I can never seem to find what I need when I need it. I will need to keep this organization setup in mind.

Heres a project that I pinned as soon as I saw it because this is exactly what I want our laundry room to be like. Neat, tidy, ORGANISED! No more time looking for the boys socks while the daughter wails that her favorite top cant be found. Weve realized that the 2 space between the washing machine and the existing cupboard could accommodate the Rolling Pantry DIY Kitchen Storage design (elsewhere on this site). If we make it just under 2 wide it will fill that space and be wide enough to hold baskets. Its going to be awesome!

This is such a great idea no matter what size your laundry room is, this organizational idea helps get those laundry baskets off the floor, I hate running in to them! This idea would make your laundry room look more clean and streamlined!
