Install dividers

You can utilize your walls by installing dividers to stack your clothes or laundry mats. But you have to plan how you place your dividers on your wall.

Create a laundry wall that has everything in one place

This can be positioned at the corners or edges of your laundry room. You can have wire shelving installed at opposite ends for drying clothes. Feel free to insert a laundry mobile cabinet that you can insert in the given space. You can place your laundry materials in this area. It will also be great if it is located near your ironing board for better accessibility. Depending on the lifestyle of your family determine what is needed for easy reach. Closed door cabinets can store detergents, and cleaners, while open areas can store quick needed items without searching.
