Check out these 10 Clever Laundry Room hacks to turn it into a highly organized space and make your life easier!
Laundry Room Organization Hacks
1. Wall Mounted organizer
A brilliant idea to utilize the space behind the doors using the Elfa track system from I Heart Organizing. They used an Elfa system to hang brooms, Swiffer’s, and iron boards. They also attached some bins, hooks, and trays to keep the items they use the most in easy reach.
Absolutely love this idea to keep the most used laundry and cleaning tools against the wall to maximize space and also simplify the daily routine.
2. Store Soap and Detergent in Glass Containers
Make your laundry room look professionally organized by storing detergent and fabric softeners in these glass dispensers and adding a pretty label! These glass containers are classy, convenient and low cost at the same time as it does not make sense to spend a lot of money on pricey containers. Plus, this will prevent all the accidental spills as you can easily take out detergent from taps on these containers.
You don’t need expensive jars, you can purchase cute and affordable dispensers from Amazon.
3. Use A Detergent Drip Catcher
Now, this is a really genius idea to prevent a soapy mess in the laundry room as dripping laundry detergents can really make a mess all over your cabinets or washer. But you can easily save the mess and cleanup by grabbing a few of these Tidy Cup Laundry gadgets. (Via Amazon)
4. Store Tide Pods in A Candy Jar
Spruce up your Tide Pod holder and store the tide pods in these candy jars. A great organizing idea to give your laundry room a custom organized look! This tip is also good in storing powdered laundry detergent. Keep them in a safe place away from children, so they don’t mistake tide pods with candy.
5. Mini Ironing Board
Regular ironing boards take a lot of space and are a big headache especially in smaller laundry rooms. So, a smaller board is an ideal solution for an organized laundry room. A crafty fox has a perfect tutorial to make your own Mini Ironing board at home. Alternatively, you can buy a tabletop ironing board, like this one.
6. Build A Laundry Basket Organizer
This is a type of laundry basket sorter everyone dreams of having! If you have room for it, then it’s a perfect sorter. Ashley at Make It – Love It and her husband built this laundry basket organizer for their laundry room with MDF board, 2×4’s and a little bit of handy work! Their baskets are the Sterilite Laundry Baskets that you can get in a 6 pack! Check out Ashley’s tutorial here!
7. Washer and Dryer Storage
If you have a lack of space on top or around your dryer? Why not try under! Not only it will help in organizing your laundry room, but it will also help you save a lot of money by not buying expensive drawer pedestals. This is literally a huge money saving organization idea, especially if you have small laundry rooms.
8. Keep A DIY Lint Bin
Oh, the lint! If doing laundry wasn’t already such a pain, add in the constant cleaning of the lint catcher. And it’s super hard to fit a trash can into a small laundry room. So, how about creating your own lint bin! Melissa at Polished Habitat used a Brochure Holder to create her own lint bin and the best thing is it does not require any additional space! You can check out the tutorial here.
9. Use Slatwall And Hooks to Create An Organized Space
Slatwalls are usually used in garage organization but you can use small Slatwalls for organizing things everywhere around your house. A simple yet brilliant idea to keep your brooms, Swiffer’s and baskets in place is to hook them to a piece of Slatwall. My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia has an easy tutorial if you are confused on how to go about this.
10. Install A Hanging Basket Rack
A great way to obtain extra storage without taking much space is to use hanging baskets. All you need to do is to install a hanging basket rack on the back of your laundry room door. You can use it to store extra toilet paper, paper towels, soaps, detergents, etc! Since it’s on the back of your laundry room door, it stays hidden making your laundry room look clean and organized.
