Having trouble finding small laundry room ideas that appeal to you? Don’t fret! While having a small laundry room may be frustrating at times, that doesn’t mean that your small space can’t be functional AND stylish. Therefore, I’m here to talk to you about all things space-saving for your small laundry room design.
How can I make my laundry room look bigger?
Making your laundry room look a lot bigger than it actually is, is not as daunting of a task as it may seem. I mean, who really needs a massive laundry room layout anyways?! Therefore, let’s check out these simple hacks to make your laundry room appear larger!
Firstly, think about incorporating vertical storage into your tiny space. For instance, you could do a stackable washer/dryer in a small laundry closet. Then if you have room, stack baskets or shelves on top of each other. Here, you can keep cleaning supplies, laundry detergent and other laundry essentials. Overall, it’s crucial that you think of storage ideas and organization ideas in order to maximize space in your mudroom.
Secondly, try a fold-down half-style ironing board! In my little laundry room, I installed hooks to actually put the ironing board on hangers in the closet. See, making use of limited space is easier than you think!
Thirdly, use your wall space and incorporate some stylish decorating ideas. If you’re a fan of wall art, check out our Best Laundry Room Ideas article for some great pieces. Or, you could simply do a DIY and dangle your laundry basket on a wall hook for your dirty clothes. Talk about freeing up some floor space!
Lastly, create a folding station. The only way your laundry room will ever actually look bigger is if it’s organized and kept neat. And trust me, I know all too well how challenging that task can be. By creating a folding station, your laundry area workspace is more organized and efficient. For example, I like to maximize storage space by adding a basket in the corner of my folding station to store laundry supplies and then leave the rest of my counter space free.
What are some laundry room design ideas?
Ugh, the dreaded words: laundry day. Because I know I strongly dislike these words…do you? However, fact of the matter is, laundry day doesn’t have to be boring and mundane all around. By designing your laundry space to feel stylish and decorative, your laundry day could actually start to feel….FUN! Wait…did I just say that out loud?!
Anywho, check out these laundry room design ideas, perfect for if you’re doing a remodel or laundry room makeover.
- Incorporate floating shelves (perfect for laundry room organization)
- Functional white shiplap walls
- Farmhouse sink with black countertops and gray cabinetry (perfect for a modern farmhouse laundry room)
- Gold accents on cabinet pull-outs
- Freestanding stainless steel utility sink (if you’re going for that industrial look)
What are the advantages of a small laundry room?
And if you’re still needing some reassurance, I’m here to tell you that there are so many POSITIVES of a small laundry room!
Firstly, better functionality! For instance, think about having a huge master bedroom. When I had a massive bedroom, I would leave my clothes all over the floor, nothing was organized, it was just a huge mess. Therefore, the same goes for your laundry room. When you have a small laundry room, it’s motivation to keep it clean and organized. There’s no room for detergent to be laying around or clothes spewed out all over your front load washer.
Secondly, the cost of redesigning a smaller laundry room is much cheaper! Especially if you’re going uber budget-friendly and do DIY.
Thirdly, you won’t need to spend hours looking for that drying rack or that last bottle of fabric softener. Because there isn’t a ton of space, your laundry room storage will be better organized (and therefore, quicker to find)!
How can I organize my laundry room?
Here are some quick tips for keeping your small laundry room organized.
- Mount dryer racks to the wall
- DIY a clothes hanger (get an old ladder, suspend it from the ceiling and TA-DA!)
- Attach a hanging rod above the laundry room sink if you use a garment steamer often
- Create a specific spot to divide dirty laundry (I recommend labeling baskets such as “colors” and “whites”)
- Add a free-standing shelving system
- Build a countertop (you could even put one on top of your washer/dryer combo)
