Laundry storage and organisation is most important in such a small room. Laundries are often known to be the most cramped and unorganized room in the house. If you are renovating an existing laundry or designing a new one, maximise your storage with these laundry cabinet ideas and space-saving designs to keep you organized.
Alternate Storage Types
Plan areas for larger items first such as the clothes washer, dryer, sink and storage areas for laundry baskets then establish other smaller areas. A combination of storage types will help you run an efficient laundry. Slim benchtop cabinets are ideal for storing small towels, cleaning items and other laundry room essentials. Slide out racks create a multi-purpose area for either drying clothes or hanging ironed clothing. A stackable front-loading washer and dryer leaves room for extra cabinetry or shelving space.
Mix Wide and Narrow Cabinets
A functional laundry stores a variety of items from small cleaning supplies to large laundry baskets. Install a mix of wide and narrow cupboards to accommodate to the various items kept in the laundry such as vacuums, mops and ironing boards. Extend the cabinets as high as possible for storage of unfrequently used items. Plenty of storage options for each item will keep your room organized and free of clutter.
Add Pull-out Laundry Baskets
Another innovative way to keep your laundry tidy is by installing soft close laundry hampers which hide away under your bench top. Hideaway soft close laundry hampers allows you to keep your washing from off the floor and separate your white laundry from colours with multiple hampers side by side.
Think about Door Space
Integrated cabinetry with doors will help to hide clutter and conceal your washing units. Consider sliding or bi-fold doors or install open shelving to conserve open door space if you have a small laundry area.
