Apportion your laundry room into four zones.
The four zones are loading or reception section, laundry equipment area, folding corner and the utility area. The reception area is the zone where all laundry mats are to be placed. This includes laundry and storage bins. You may have separate bins for colored and white laundry mats. For the laundry equipment area, make sure that it is accessible to water supply and drainage. This zone may take the biggest division of your laundry room. The folding corner is a zone wherein you can fold over the dry and clean laundries. This area does not necessarily need to be spacious. The utility area is where you can store laundry solutions, ironing equipment, cleaning tools, and other objects needed for laundry.
Choose innovative laundry furniture or a laundry closet and rack.
Nowadays, there are several laundry furniture and accessories that are flexible and convertible into something useful. For instance, the sleek design laundry bag sorter with hanging bar can accommodate bulk laundry mats without occupying huge space. Also, there is a wall mounted laundry drying rack that can be stretched out if you need to hang your clothing and can be hidden after use.
