6 Tips to make your laundry room more organized

Laundry rooms should be as efficient and organized as possible but sometimes when you have
a small laundry room it can be difficult, but we have some laundry room tips that can certainly
help you. No matter if your laundry room is small or big, you can always organize it better and make it
more efficient. With simple touches and with our useful tips you can make your laundry room a
lot more organized.

What should every laundry room have?

Every laundry room should have a place to hang your clothes, as well as a washing machine
and a drier. Depending on the size of your laundry room, you may also have a sink and even a
sizeable place to iron your clothes.

This is the bare minimum necessary to have a functioning laundry room. However, some of us
actually do not need a washing machine and drier because we live in an apartment. If that is the
case you should still have a laundry room.

Make it a place to organize the dirty clothes, and iron the clean ones. You can also use it as a storage for cleaning products, brooms, and mops.

How do I organize my laundry room?

Organizing your laundry room starts by making the most out of it. Make sure you do not waste
space and try to organize everything. Shelves are a great way to help you organize things. You
can also use small cabinets, to store some products and even put your clothes in.
One of my favorite tips to organize dirty clothes is to divide them into different hampers. You can
have a hamper for white clothes, black clothes, and colorful clothes. This makes it easy to
organize everything and prepare to wash it. You also do not have to waste time separating all
your clothes, since it is all done easily.

How do you organize a messy laundry room?

To organize a messy laundry start by creating a space for everything. You should have all of
your cleaning products together, and the same way for your clothes. Start by dividing your
laundry room by section and putting the appropriate things in each place. By doing so, you
make it easy to use your laundry room and find anything you need.

Shelves and hangers can really help you organize even the smallest laundry room. Another one
of my favorite pieces of advice is wall hangers because it makes it super easy to hang additional
clothes if you need to.

How can I make my laundry room better?

A laundry room should be organized in a way that is simple for you to take care of your clothes.
Sometimes you do not need to have a huge laundry room, and you can make the most of even
the smallest laundry rooms. Here are our 10 tips to help improve your laundry room:

1. Put the drier on top of the washing machine

This is one of the best ways to save space in your laundry room, while also making it more
efficient. All you need to do is to buy an accessory, that allows you to stack your drier on top of
the washing machine. It is very easy to set up, and you can gain a lot of space in a matter of

If you wish you can also build a cabinet and hide your washing machine and drier. You can even
create a cupboard on top, giving you extra room to store more things.

2. Simplify the ironing board

How many times do we actually use an ironing board? Not many! So why have it laying around
and taking up a lot of space for no reason? There are two great solutions for this problem, that
will make your life a lot simpler.

One of them is a pull-out ironing board. If you have a cabinet that you can get this set up in,
then this is a great solution. Your ironing board will be completely hidden away, and you can
always use it when you need it.

The other idea is to have the ironing board on the wall. This is another simple and effective way
to save space in your laundry room. Whenever you need to use the ironing board, just pull it
down, and put it back up against the wall. Simple and practical!

3. Countertops and shelves

Countertops and shelves are also a great way to give your laundry room more space and make
it extremely organized. Avoid having anything on the floor taking up space. Instead just set up a
shelve and place your things there. That is all you need.

4. Hanging place for your clothes

Hanging your clothes is also important for every laundry room. Make sure you have clothes
hangers, or even some wall hangers can be a great addition. It makes it easy to have everything
in place and you will never run out of space.

5. Organize your laundry

One of the ideas that I love is to have different hampers for different types of clothes. Why do
you still waste time separating your clothes by color? Just have different hampers for different
colors, and not mix things.
Imagine you have a little rug that is used by your pets, you want to avoid washing that with your
clothes. By having different hampers you can keep everything neatly organized.

6. Wall-mounted rack to dry clothes

So you do not have space to dry your clothes with a traditional rack, well there is a solution! Just
mount it on the wall. If you are wondering what the best way is to save space and still dry your
clothes, you can start by having a wall-mounted dry rack that does not take any space at all.
Combine this with the wall-mounted ironing board and you just saved a lot of space.


Having an organized laundry room does not have to be difficult! In fact, it can be very easy, but it
is all a matter of organizing every little detail to make sure you make the most out of even the
smallest space.
