Struggling with Space in Your Laundry Room?
Is there anything more satisfying than being able to do laundry in your home? Wave goodbye to those days of having to wait in a laundromat for hours on end watching your clothes as they tumble around and around in a washing machine.
The simple pleasure of being able to do our laundry in-suite is one of those guilty pleasures that our adult selves would rather not admit to enjoying so much. However, not everyone has a big laundry room of their dreams. If you happen to be one of those people with a small laundry room, the novelty of in-suite laundry could wear off quickly - without the right laundry accessories that is.
In this post, we are going to share with you our best space-saving ideas for a small laundry room so that you can launder your clothes in style and in the one room. Don’t believe us? Just you wait!
Laundry Hacks for Small Spaces: How to Maximize Your Laundry Room Space
Yes, you can maximize every inch of even the smallest of laundry rooms to work in your favour. No more having your bathroom double up as drying space for your clothes or using your kitchen table as a surface to iron on.
When it comes to smaller laundry spaces, you need to be clever in the laundry accessories and storage solutions you use. Follow our favourite tips below to get the most out of your laundry game.
- Maximize from the floor up - One of the most frustrating aspects of having a small laundry room is the lack of storage and floor space. That’s why it is important to make use of every single inch of your room. Need somewhere to hang your clothes to dry them? Consider installing a clothes rail in a cabinet. Don’t have space for your mop, brush and vacuum? Mount them on the back of a door or on the wall.
- Shelves are your best friend - Never underestimate how beneficial shelving can be. If you have a front-loading machine, use the area on top of your washer/dryer as storage space for your laundry detergent. Installing shelves where it makes sense on the walls can also help you create a storage space for additional items that you need such as towels, linens or blankets.
- Hang up your ironing board - An ironing board can be a bulky laundry product but it is also essential. Rather than store it away in your bedroom closet, use robe hooks to cleverly store it out of the way in your laundry room.
Don’t look at your laundry room in despair. You can use this space as effectively as a laundromat with a few creative storage ideas and by thinking outside the box. So, instead of focusing on the lack of square footage just think about the space-saving possibilities instead.
