Focus on Folding

Taking inspiration from what we do with clothes when they’re dry, there are a variety of folding accessories that are perfect for laundry room space.

  • Fold-out drying racks are great for drying clothes that aren’t dryer-safe. When not in use, they collapse to have a low profile against the wall.
  • A fold-down ironing board saves space in the laundry room and will allow you to smooth out any wrinkles when clothes are fresh from the dryer.
  • A fold-down workspace can function as a folding table- your fold-down folding table!

Sewing and Craft Space

Most of the holes and rips in clothing are discovered on laundry day. Rather than waiting and trying to remember which shirt needs stitching, take care of tears in your laundry room! Consider installing a workstation or countertop with custom storage cabinets or drawers for sewing supplies. You can store extra laundry detergent and fabric softener in the unused space, and use the top as a folding table when the sewing machine isn’t in use.

Store Seasonal Clothes

Unused space in the laundry room can be put to use as seasonal storage. Wall-mounted clothes storage, hanging racks, and adjustable shelving can hold swimwear, sundresses, and other summery clothing during the cooler months, and can be flipped to store coats and sweaters the rest of the year. You can also stash shoes that aren’t in season, and protect them with cabinets and shelves to keep them fresh for another year.
