Laundry rooms are often forgotten when it comes to organizing your home. Homeowners typically focus on the main areas of their house like the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms. But, what if we told you that simple updates in your laundry room can change the way you feel about doing laundry. Doing laundry is a dreaded process, let us be honest. It is not fun to take time out of your busy schedule to sort, wash, dry, iron, hang and put away all your clothing. We want to help you put the pep back into your laundry-doing step with these simple laundry room organization ideas:
Tip #1: Designate a Folding Area.
Folding can be such a chore if you are constantly looking for a place to fold. Designate a specific counter space for folding all your clean clothes to reduce wasted time.
Tip #2: Add a Hanging Rod.
By your ironing board, install a hanging rod to place your recently ironed clothing. This will help deter wrinkles from reforming and incorporates useful storage opportunities.
Tip #3: Incorporate Slat Wall Storage.
Utilize the wall space available in your laundry room by using a slat wall to incorporate more storage. Slat walls are typically found in garages, but this organizer can be brought indoors for some stellar updates. Try painting the slat wall your favorite color to add design and function to your space. You can even add some stenciled artwork to make it more pleasing to the eyes.
Tip #4: Get a Hanger Organizer.
The time we spend detangling hangers . . . Invest in a hanger organizer and your life will be forever changed. This system is perfect for busy homeowners!
Tip #5: Encourage The Family to Sort.
Sorting can be done quickly if everyone participates in the job. Encourage members of your family to place the whites, blacks, and colors each in their particular basket in the laundry room. This will help save time with washing everyone’s clothing later.
Tip #6: Jar your Detergent.
Detergent can be a bit of an eyesore in laundry rooms. Place your detergent and fabric softener in cute jars. Try using a glass drink decanter for liquid detergent and you will never go back to boring bottles. Plus, if you want to save money and the environment, you can make your own detergent and you will not have to waste detergent bottles anymore.
We hope you enjoyed these laundry room organization hacks!
