A laundry room should be highly organized and functional because it is a working area but it remains cramped in most of the houses. However, you do not need to worry! These easy home organization and decorating ideas will keep your laundry room decluttered and turn the place from a mess to a sanctuary.
Home Organization: How to Declutter Your Laundry Room
Build a Workstation
To keep the laundry room decluttered and organized, you have to build or designate a workstation. A proper workstation will save time and keep the mess scattering around the floor. Instead of piling up the clean clothes on your dryer’s tiny surface, use a workstation combined with a tiny table, a foldout shelf, and a built-in counter. Use them for folding or holding clothes and other accessories. Especially, a built-in shelf can be very handy in keeping the folded linens organized in neat stacks. Don’t forget to clean them on a regular basis.
Keep the Tiny Items Organized
Besides being a place for washing and cleaning clothes and shoes, a laundry room is the place for repairing these things too. So, the things like scrub brush, bleach pen, and the kits for stain removal, shoe care, and minor sewing repairs should be stored there at the hand’s reach. Keep these things in separate boxes on the lowest shelf for easy reach. For popped buttons, loose change, and other smaller things, a catchall will be perfect. You can also use a shower caddy to hold these things because it will be easy to grab and carry.
Rolling Hamper for Tossed up Items
A rolling hamper can save the laundry room floor from the mess of tossed up items. Such a hamper is so roomy that you can throw literally all the dirty clothes without feeling overwhelmed. However, keep a separate bin for items like muddy socks or sweaty workout clothes because it will be better not to mix them with other items.
Shelves for Ultimate Organization
Shelves are a wonderful solution in both keeping the clutter out and holding the clothes and other items in order. You can use any type – adjustable wire shelving, open shelves, or closet-shelves. Keep separate things in each shelf for grab-and-go. For example, keep drying sweaters in one shelf, towels in another one, and the other for stacks of folded clothing.
These home organization tips will give you new inspiration for doing a makeover of your laundry room. You will be able to keep everything necessary for cleaning and caring of your clothing in one place. They will also save your time and the precious space of that relatively smaller area.
