2. The Slanted Storage

I never have a good place to store my laundry baskets. Truthfully, I have a large pull out drawer under my bed that I hide my baskets in.

But thanks to this idea, you can easily have a space for your laundry baskets. They will be easily stored and easily accessible as well.

3. Laundry Room Storage Peg Wall

This peg wall is a great way to organize all of the things that often clutter a laundry room. For instance, you could hang your broom and mop on this well.

Plus, you can add a nice little basket to store your clothes pins and other odds and ends items that find their way to the laundry room.

4. The Washer Notes

This is a really neat idea that anyone can do. If you have a special care item in the wash that you don’t want to forget about, then you simply use a dry erase marker to write a reminder on the top of the machine.

Plus, you can actually purchase markers that have magnetic lids so they’ll stick directly to your washing machine. Pretty neat idea, huh?

5. The Hanging Dryer

This laundry room layout is so cool, in my opinion. You have your washer on the floor and counter space for folding your clothes.

Plus, you have a nice laundry sink as well. Then you have this awesome little dryer that hangs above the washer so it doesn’t take up any extra space.

6. The Pull-Out Drying Rack

Do you like to have a place to hang some of your clothes to dry? I know I have a few items that I prefer not to pop in the dryer if I can help it.

Well, with this neat pull out drawer you may be able to have a drying rack in a smaller laundry room and not have it take up much space.

7. The Cat Hole

This idea is for all cat lovers out there. It would work in any room, but I store my litterbox in our laundry room. I have a couple of indoor cats that I love dearly, and I know they’d love if I added this to our home.

So you just cut a hole in the door, and you can even add brushing attachments so they feel like they are being rubbed/brushed as they go through the door.

8. The Hidden Drawers

If you’d like to have a hidden storage space in your laundry room, then why not match the drawers to your cabinets?

Then you can put your clothes baskets in these drawers, or any other item that you don’t want cluttering your laundry room.

9. Wall Mounted Lint Bin

I love this idea. I always have lint coming from my dryer, but I never have a convenient location to discard it.

So whether you are in a small laundry room and need a spot for lint that won’t take up space, or if you are someone that needs a place to store lint to compost. This could be a great option for you.

10. Laundry Room Sign

This is another great design idea that I absolutely love. I think this little sign gives your laundry room a little something special.

But I also love that once this room is labeled no one has any more excuse to not put their clothes there or to help you when needed. The room has a sign so you know where it is!

11. The Hidden Ironing Board

My current laundry room is pretty small. When I was redesigning it I had to come up with lots of ways to maximize space.

But storing my ironing board was quite the hassle until I hung it on the wall. This idea of storing your ironing board on the wall will give you even more space.

12. Laundry Stickers

Even your laundry room should have some personality to it. Which is why I love these stickers that can be easily applied to your walls.

So the next time you enter your laundry room and see this sticker, hopefully it will give you a little chuckle while you go about your chores.

13. Hanger Storage

Having a good place to store empty hangers is never an easy problem to solve. You always need them when doing laundry, but then they are always in the way any other time.

But with this neat little bar to hang under your cabinets, you will have a handy place to store hangers until you need them.

Laundry room ideas

14. The Compact Laundry Room

I really like this laundry room layout. My preference is to have a top loader washer, but you lose folding and hanging space in compact laundry rooms when you have a top loader.

But with this layout, you can have storage over your washer and dryer. As well as have a nice space to hang clothes as they come out of the dryer.

15. Hanging Laundry Bags

These laundry bags are very becoming and also a great way to keep all of your laundries easily organized.

So if you’d like a DIY way to add a little flare to your laundry space while also helping it to function better, then this might be a good option for you.

16. The Cozy Laundry Room

With this make-over, the laundry room takes on a cozy effect. It has a nice little light that adds some warmth to the room while it rests on the shelf.

But what I love the most about this design is that it is meant for top loaders. It is hard to always find a way to spruce up your laundry room when you don’t use front load washer/dryer sets.

17. Keep the Change

Are you always finding loose change in your washer and dryer? If so, then you need a nice way to store it so it doesn’t end up everywhere.

Well, this is a simple idea that you could probably make yourself. But if you can’t, this idea is actually for sale on etsy.com.

19. The DIY Laundry Pedestal

Do you have a front loader washer/dryer set? If so, then you might want a way to bring them up to your level to save your back.

Well, don’t buy one of those store bought pedestals. Instead, make your own that can also double as a way to sort laundry.

20. Hanger Storage Solution

If you don’t have cabinets in your laundry room, then the above-referenced storage technique for hangers probably won’t work for you.

But if you still need a neat way to store them, then you should consider this idea. You just slide the hangers onto the hooks, and they are out of the way until needed.

21. The Pull-Out Ironing Board

Finding a good place to store an ironing board where it won’t take up a ton of room can sometimes be a struggle.

Then someone created this ingenious idea where the ironing board pulls in and out like a drawer. How awesome is that?

22. The Wood Crate Ironing Station

I love the way this idea looks. We all have ironing boards to contend with. If you have the wall space to hang it, then why not hang a crate right above it?

Then you can have all of your ironing supplies in one easy place. Plus it adds some character to the room as well.

25. The Sandwiched Shelf

This shelf is a really great way to utilize every ounce of space you have in your laundry room. It is a pull-out shelf that is sandwiched between the washer and dryer.

So as you can imagine this makes things much easier to access when washing clothes. It also doesn’t take up any extra space.

26. The Farmhouse Laundry Sink

This is a little more elegant looking laundry room. Truthfully, it is probably out of my budget.

But if it isn’t for you, then you might want to consider it. It has a great amount of storage and a beautiful farmhouse style sink.

27. The Laundry Room Door

For those of you that have a door to your laundry room, then you might like this as a nice addition to it.

Plus, as I mentioned earlier, no one in your family has any excuse to not help you with the laundry. You added a nice little sign to help them find their way to the laundry room.

28. The Pet-Lovers Laundry Room

I love this laundry room. It is great for those with pets because it seems that the pet’s room always coincides with the laundry room.

So with this style, you have a stylish way of having a fully functional laundry room. But you also have ample amount of space for your pet.

29. If You Don’t Have a Laundry Room

There are some people that literally do not have an actual laundry room in their house. I’m one of them. My laundry room is actually attached to my oversized master bathroom.

But for those that don’t even have that, this is a great way to fit it into your home without drawing a lot of attention to your washer/dryer set. And it’s functional.

30. Retractable Clothes Line

Just because you have a smaller laundry area does not mean that you have to let go of certain things that you need to have a functional laundry room.

For instance, a space to dry your clothes. With this cool retractable clothes line, you just pull it out when needed, and put it up when you don’t need it.

31. The Laundry Room Caddy

I am in love with this idea. If you have a tiny laundry room, then you might really want to consider this idea.

So it is your ironing board, folding table, and storage space all in one. How neat is that?

32. DIY Ironing Board Holder

This is a great idea for storing your ironing board. It is frugal too. I actually purchased one of those ironing board caddies when I needed to hang mine on the wall.

Well, instead, find a couple of vintage looking wall hooks. Place them side by side and hang up your ironing board. She actually used it on the back of her door to hide the ironing board.

33. The Crib Spring Hanging Rack

This is a great way to repurpose items that you might not be using any longer. I know I had a hard time figuring out what to do with my son’s crib when he was through with it.

But I would’ve never thought to use the spring as a drying rack. It looks pretty simple to configure and also very functional.

Laundry room ideas

34. The Dryer Box

If you haven’t noticed, the dryer always has to stick farther out from the wall because of the dryer vent.

Well, after you install this dryer box, the dryer can actually fit closer up to the wall which may help your room to function better.

Laundry room ideas

35. The Simple Storage Method

This is a very budget friendly way of keeping up with small items that often clutter up a laundry room.

So you just need a pale that can be written on and a glass jar. This will give you a great way to label items and keep your laundry room clean.

36. The Laundry Sign

This sign is multi-purpose. It adds some décor to your laundry room.

But it is also a great place to hang laundry as you are preparing it to be put away. So if you want something decorative and functional, this could be it.

37. The Fold Down Drying Racks


These drying racks are ingenious. When they aren’t needed, they simply fold up onto the wall and are out of the way.

But when you need them, you can simply pull them down into position until your clothing is dry. Then you put them back.

38. Laundry Room Stickers

These laundry room stickers are a great way to add a splash of your personality to your wash area.

Plus, I love how they speak the truth in a humorous manner. Basically, if you don’t wash clothes today, you could be in trouble tomorrow.

Let’s say you have open shelving, and you don’t want a bunch of ugly bottles distracting from the rest of your charming décor.

Well, then you go with these glass containers and label your products. It should be easy to get your laundry supplies out and also look nice too.
