Laundry Room Organization

 

I found this picture of a laundry room, and I loved it.

It is not from a blog, but I found it HERE.

The reason I love this picture is because I love the countertop above the washer and dryer.  it creates a lot of useful room in this small space.

Amazing Organization Ideas for Small Spaces

Adding a countertop above your washer and dryer is definitely a doable DIY project.

You could also add some open shelves in your laundry room to create some more storage space.  I like how they used wire baskets and trays to display all of their laundry items.

 

Sprucing up my laundry list is on my to do list for the new year!  How about you?  Smile

 

Happy Organizing!

    I love the open shelves over the washer and dryer. We’re doing a huge add-on/renovation in our 800 sq. ft. home after the first of the year and one of the things I’m most excited about is a laundry room/storage room with a door and lots of room. The other thing is a dedicated mudroom!!!!!

    Lovely! My m-i-l has a similiar setup. I would offer one suggestion: set the countertop on brackets so you can remove it when you have to move the machines. (And buy a front loading washer! I had one once…)

    I have a tiny laundry room in my new house. To capture as much space as possible, we stacked our front loading washer and dryer. Then we mounted 12″ and 15″ base cabinets on a piece of plywood (the space wouldn’t fit a 30″ cabinet), with sturdy locking casters below it. We attached a 7′ tall, 27″ wide piece of plywood, painted the wall color (a deep barn red, gorgeous against all the white!) to the back and hung adjustable ShelfTrack shelves for drying sweaters and other delicates. We mounted a white laminate countertop above the cabinets, and store our laundry detergent and additives on top. The entire laundry “hutch” rolls out for easy access to the laundry plumbing, and we can take it with us when/if we move. It looks totally built-in. We were left with enough room for a 42″ wide, 13″ deep Ikea Tjusig bench (with 2 shelves for shoe storage) across from the laundry appliances, with a shelf with hooks and cubbies for hats and gloves mounted above it. Such a functional, tiny mudroom/laundry!

    littlegreennotebook.blogspot.com did this in her latest home and I really liked it. However, I have a top loader so i’m still on the hunt for other ideas.
