Doing laundry for an entire family can be a full-time job on its own. So, we’re pretty much open to doing anything that can make doing laundry easier on us.
“We don’t have necessarily, most of the time, huge laundry rooms. We have a normal smaller sized laundry room. Some people just have a closet. But if your laundry room is prettier it’s a lot more fun to do laundry.”
Blogger Rhonda Batchelor came up with some ingenious ways to organize her 7-by-6 1/2-foot laundry room. She did this all with a budget of just $400. It’s literally the most beautiful laundry room we’ve ever seen.
So, you’re definitely going to want to try these out. They might even make you want to spend more time in your laundry room.
Stack Your Machines
You’ll need front loading machines to do this but stacking your washer and dryer will save so much space in your laundry room. Plus, we just think it looks a lot nicer and sleeker.
Pull Out Sorting Bins
Include sorting bins in your laundry room so your family can just toss their laundry in the appropriate bin allowing you to toss it right in the washing machine. Using pullout bins allows you to hide them under a counter to save space and offers you easy access.
Clean Laundry Baskets
Include baskets for each member of your family in your laundry room. You can place your clean laundry inside them and this will make it easier to sort the laundry out by person. It’s also a great way to get your family members to fetch their own laundry.
Batchelor created her own racks to hang delicates from. She slides those racks into a drawer and has a fan that runs behind them so they dry.
Having a counter in your laundry room gives you space to fold your laundry.
Hanging Bar or Rack
Batchelor used a tension rod so that she has a place to hang clothing.
Folding Iron Board
She also created a fold out swiveling ironing board that is hidden behind a closet. This prevents her from having to lug and unfold a clunky ironing board. The swiveling feature also allows her to easily move it out of the way if she has to leave the room in the middle of ironing laundry.
