Laundry rooms are often small, crowded spaces. If your laundry room constantly seems cramped, it may be time to consider adding some space saving measures. Consider these ideas.
Consider a Fold Out Ironing Board
If you regularly iron clothing in your laundry room, you know exactly how much room an ironing board can take up. Installing an ironing board that is attached to a cabinet and folds out when needed is an easy way to save space, while still allowing you to maintain your clothing. These ironing boards take up a minimal amount of space, and are always available when you’re ready to iron.
Add Drawers Under the Washer and Dryer
Lift your washer and dryer off the ground to install drawers underneath them. A skilled home storage system company like Closet & Storage Concepts can evaluate the space that you have available to you and help install custom drawers and cabinets to fit in your laundry room. Customized cabinets and drawers are a a great option for storing linens, folded clothes, extra cleaning supplies, and more.
Install a Built-In Drying Area
If you have clothing that needs to be air dried, it can be difficult to find enough space in your laundry room to handle this task each time you do laundry. However, installing a dedicated hanging rod or rack can provide you with an indoor area to air dry lingerie and other delicate items, so that they aren’t damaged by a tumble dryer.
Use a Labeled Hamper for Sorting Clothing
Nothing clutters up a small laundry room quite like piles of laundry on the floor. However, sometimes it’s easier to sort clothes in piles. If you’re short on space, it makes sense to purchase a divided hamper to sort your dirty clothing, with labeled sections for darks, whites, and delicates. This allows you to keep your dirty clothes up off of the floor, as well as saving space in your laundry room.
