8 Awesome DIY Laundry Room Hacks

In these times of small and practical living, making the most of storage spaces is the way to go. Laundry rooms are necessary for a neat, organized life, but more often than not, we don’t properly utilize this dedicated space for doing laundry and organizing clothes.

This infographic from Modular Closets showing 8 handy and practical do-it-yourself laundry room hacks clearly illustrates how arranging that space for maximum efficiency doesn’t have to cost too much. Hanging clothes straight from the dryer to keep wrinkles at a minimum only requires placing a sturdy bar on top of the washer. Then there’s the ironing board, which admittedly takes up a bit of floor space. The genius DIY solution? Installing a couple of coat hooks on the wall can serve as a hanger for the folded-up ironing board!

You can also repurpose cute Mason jars to put your laundry detergent and fabric softener in (properly labeled, of course). If the room didn’t come with its own drying rack, make a pull-out or drop-down drying rack from a strong grill. Use hanging organizers as pockets to place spritz bottles, lint removers, and other ironing tools. And if you want to keep dirty laundry out of sight, use a shelving system with pull-out baskets to sort them by color or laundry care. You can place them either in open shelves or in the space under your washing machine for a seamless look.   

Now, if you want to hide the laundry room from the rest of the house, make it chic. Sliding barn doors are all the rage for their rustic charm, and it’s simple enough to install. Plus, it doesn’t take up too much precious space!
