Decor 22

Do you have a laundry room that needs some love?

I mean, it is probably the most important room in my house. I have a total of 4 males in my house that are not your average sized people.

So needless to say, I have to wash a lot of clothing. Which is all the more important for my laundry room to be laid out well, a functional space, and also some place I enjoy being (because I spend a lot of time there.)

Which is why I’m bringing you a bunch of different laundry ideas. Some are great examples of how you could lay out your laundry room. Others are a few organizational or design hacks to make your laundry room a functional and enjoyable space for you.

Great Laundry Room Ideas

Here are the laundry room ideas I’ve found on the web:

1. 60 Small Laundry Room Designs

This website offers around 60 different laundry room layouts. It is great because whether your laundry room is in a closet or actually has its own room, there is a design on this site for it.

Plus, she shows how to design these small spaces to make them an enjoyable place to be. If my laundry room looked this good, I’d probably never leave.

2. The Slanted Storage

I never have a good place to store my laundry baskets. Truthfully, I have a large pull out drawer under my bed that I hide my baskets in.

But thanks to this idea, you can easily have a space for your laundry baskets. They will be easily stored and easily accessible as well.

3. Laundry Room Storage Peg Wall

This peg wall is a great way to organize all of the things that often clutter a laundry room. For instance, you could hang your broom and mop on this well.

Plus, you can add a nice little basket to store your clothes pins and other odds and ends items that find their way to the laundry room.

4. The Washer Notes

This is a really neat idea that anyone can do. If you have a special care item in the wash that you don’t want to forget about, then you simply use a dry erase marker to write a reminder on the top of the machine.

Plus, you can actually purchase markers that have magnetic lids so they’ll stick directly to your washing machine. Pretty neat idea, huh?

5. The Hanging Dryer

This laundry room layout is so cool, in my opinion. You have your washer on the floor and counter space for folding your clothes.

Plus, you have a nice laundry sink as well. Then you have this awesome little dryer that hangs above the washer so it doesn’t take up any extra space.

6. The Pull-Out Drying Rack

Do you like to have a place to hang some of your clothes to dry? I know I have a few items that I prefer not to pop in the dryer if I can help it.

Well, with this neat pull out drawer you may be able to have a drying rack in a smaller laundry room and not have it take up much space.

7. The Cat Hole

This idea is for all cat lovers out there. It would work in any room, but I store my litterbox in our laundry room. I have a couple of indoor cats that I love dearly, and I know they’d love if I added this to our home.

So you just cut a hole in the door, and you can even add brushing attachments so they feel like they are being rubbed/brushed as they go through the door.

8. The Hidden Drawers

If you’d like to have a hidden storage space in your laundry room, then why not match the drawers to your cabinets?

Then you can put your clothes baskets in these drawers, or any other item that you don’t want cluttering your laundry room.

9. Wall Mounted Lint Bin

I love this idea. I always have lint coming from my dryer, but I never have a convenient location to discard it.

So whether you are in a small laundry room and need a spot for lint that won’t take up space, or if you are someone that needs a place to store lint to compost. This could be a great option for you.

10. Laundry Room Sign

This is another great design idea that I absolutely love. I think this little sign gives your laundry room a little something special.

But I also love that once this room is labeled no one has any more excuse to not put their clothes there or to help you when needed. The room has a sign so you know where it is!

11. The Hidden Ironing Board

My current laundry room is pretty small. When I was redesigning it I had to come up with lots of ways to maximize space.

But storing my ironing board was quite the hassle until I hung it on the wall. This idea of storing your ironing board on the wall will give you even more space.

12. Laundry Stickers

Even your laundry room should have some personality to it. Which is why I love these stickers that can be easily applied to your walls.

So the next time you enter your laundry room and see this sticker, hopefully it will give you a little chuckle while you go about your chores.

13. Hanger Storage

Having a good place to store empty hangers is never an easy problem to solve. You always need them when doing laundry, but then they are always in the way any other time.

But with this neat little bar to hang under your cabinets, you will have a handy place to store hangers until you need them.

14. The Compact Laundry Room

I really like this laundry room layout. My preference is to have a top loader washer, but you lose folding and hanging space in compact laundry rooms when you have a top loader.

But with this layout, you can have storage over your washer and dryer. As well as have a nice space to hang clothes as they come out of the dryer.

15. Hanging Laundry Bags

These laundry bags are very becoming and also a great way to keep all of your laundries easily organized.

So if you’d like a DIY way to add a little flare to your laundry space while also helping it to function better, then this might be a good option for you.

16. The Cozy Laundry Room

With this make-over, the laundry room takes on a cozy effect. It has a nice little light that adds some warmth to the room while it rests on the shelf.

But what I love the most about this design is that it is meant for top loaders. It is hard to always find a way to spruce up your laundry room when you don’t use front load washer/dryer sets.

17. Keep the Change

Are you always finding loose change in your washer and dryer? If so, then you need a nice way to store it so it doesn’t end up everywhere.

Well, this is a simple idea that you could probably make yourself. But if you can’t, this idea is actually for sale on etsy.com.

Do you have a front loader washer/dryer set? If so, then you might want a way to bring them up to your level to save your back.

Well, don’t buy one of those store bought pedestals. Instead, make your own that can also double as a way to sort laundry.

20. Hanger Storage Solution

If you don’t have cabinets in your laundry room, then the above-referenced storage technique for hangers probably won’t work for you.

But if you still need a neat way to store them, then you should consider this idea. You just slide the hangers onto the hooks, and they are out of the way until needed.

Finding a good place to store an ironing board where it won’t take up a ton of room can sometimes be a struggle.

Then someone created this ingenious idea where the ironing board pulls in and out like a drawer. How awesome is that?

22. The Wood Crate Ironing Station

I love the way this idea looks. We all have ironing boards to contend with. If you have the wall space to hang it, then why not hang a crate right above it?

Then you can have all of your ironing supplies in one easy place. Plus it adds some character to the room as well.
