45 Stylish Laundries And Tips To Organize Them
If you’re going to spend so many hours in your laundry room, you deserve a space that’s as functional, organized and easy to use as possible. Laundry is often more complex than simply tossing dirty clothes into a washing machine and dryer. Doing laundry can also mean scrubbing and pre-soaking difficult stains, separating darks and lights, hand-washing delicates, folding clothes and more. For large families or homes without much laundry room space, laundry time can be frustrating. Fortunately, there are several ways you can maximize your laundry room space and create a functional workroom without sacrificing the style and feel of your home. Here are some useful tips.
Choose A Top Or Front Load Washing Machine
By investing in a highly rated, top-quality washer and dryer, you’ll enjoy consistently clean clothes for years and avoid the cost and hassle of constantly replacing parts on a poorly-made machine. While standard dryers are front loading, washers are widely available as both front and top loaders.
While taller users often prefer the top access point, shorter folks may have difficulty reaching clothes at the bottom of the washer. One top loader perk is you can take laundry out of standing water if the machine breaks and won’t drain.

Stay Organized With Laundry Baskets
Use small woven and fabric baskets to keep your laundry supplies — like dryer sheets, stain sticks and lint rollers — organized and easy to find. Decorative storage bins are also a simple, affordable way to add color and texture to your laundry room. Designate specific baskets for darks, lights, machine-wash and hand-wash only pieces. When your laundry piles are organized, accidents and laundry mishaps are less likely to happen.

Integrate A Work Table In Your Laundry Space
Work tables and rolling carts are handy to have in a laundry room. Use them to sort and fold clothes, iron wrinkled blouses and dress shirts or to lay wet clothes flat for gentle drying. If you do not have enough space for a small table and you have front-load units, consider installing a counter on top of your washer and dryer.

Include A Drip-Dry Rack Or Hanging Rod
Leave space in your laundry room for a drip-dry rack or hanging rod, so you can easily hang wet clothes if necessary. For an affordable, easy-to-install drying station, you can use a sturdy tension rod and plastic clothes hangers or a foldable drying rack that easily slides into your cabinets when not in use. Wall-mounted solutions offer functionality without taking up space. A mounted laundry drying rack folds flat against the wall when not in use, and hooks can hold clothing hangers, storage baskets and an ironing board.
