Organizing Your Home (The Laundry Room)
4 Ways to Organize Your Laundry Room
Don’t overlook your laundry room when tackling home re-organization projects. Sure, it’s not a room where you want to spend hours, but it’s a place you’ll spend time regularly. Organize your space for efficiency and you’ll be done in no time.
- Unobtrusive Drying Racks. If you’ve got a high ceiling, hang an old ladder or crib bed spring low enough to reach. This will create an easy way to hang clothes to dry without taking up valuable floor space.
- Behind-the-Door Storage. Take advantage of every nook and cranny for storage. Hang a shoe or shower caddy from the back of the door for laundry and cleaning products. You can also build a shallow shelving unit to fit on the wall behind the door.
- Rolling Cart. Buy, or build, a simple rolling cart that fits in the narrow space between your washer and dryer. You’ll get extra (out-of-sight) storage.
- Laundry Messages. Use a dry-erase marker directly on your washing machine (test it in an unseen area first!). Or paint a cabinet door with chalkboard paint. Use it for notes to other family members like, “There are two shirts in this load that need to be hung dry.”
