Laundry Room Storage Ideas

Discuss your laundry room storage wants and needs with your builder, who can recommend a setup that will work for you.

When it comes to your laundry room, you’ll need space for more than just your washer and dryer. Laundry products—that’s your detergent, dryer sheets, and so on—will quickly clutter up the room if you haven’t planned ahead for storage space. And where are you going to hang those damp clothes that are too delicate for the dryer, or store the baskets full of dirty clothes in between laundry days?

Creating space for these items while you’re in the building process can help you be more organized once you’re living in your new home.

Cupboards and shelves are key in a well-organized laundry room. Many opt for cupboards on the wall, under the countertop, and above their washer and dryer, unless they have a stackable set, of course! 

 Shelving units are a great way to fill in an odd space caused by an angled ceiling.

A hanging rack installed on the wall will allow you to hang your delicate clothing to dry without taking up floor space. Hanging racks can also be used as storage shelves for detergent or items bought in bulk, like paper towels, toilet paper, soaps, and more.

A countertop serves as a workspace for folding, sorting, organizing, and as extra storage space.

Discuss your laundry room storage wants and needs with your builder, who can recommend a setup that will work for you. If you’re unsure of what you want or need, an interior decorator and the Internet can give you Inspiration.
