This is my DREAM LAUNDRY ROOM!
Don’t you love it?
But like 95% of the general public, I don’t have a massive room to dedicate to my laundry area. While not a huge room like the inspiration picture above – I am lucky enough to have a designated area for my laundry. My laundry room works great but only because I find ways to use up every space in the most optimal way.

If you have a big family then create a shelving space where you can fold clothes and separate each persons pile into their own basket. This is a great idea for young kids. They pick up their basket, go to their rooms, store everything away and bring the basket back. Saves mom some time and kids get chores done fast.
If you love the picture above but aren’t the “handy-type” and don’t feel like hiring a handy man – don’t worry, there is another way!
This picture shows you a great cost-effective alternative! Go to your local Big Box Store, get your laundry baskets and two wide shelves with hanging attachment.
Your assembly will be (bottom to top):
baskets on floor
baskets on shelf
If you lack horizontal space, like me – go VERTICAL! You can either get smaller individual shelves and build up or buy a free-standing drawer/shelf unit. Check places like Target or the Container Store, they always have fantastic options.
Love to air dry your clothes but its snowing outside – hang a ladder! I love this idea instead of buying one of those plastic drying racks. Keeping storage off the ground makes your space feel more open aka bigger!
Is sorting your laundry a headache? Before this nifty idea, my floor would be covered in a dozen little piles. Now tossing laundry into the baskets is a fun little game and best of all – it looks clean!
