When you have a small space for doing laundry, it’s easy for it to quickly become cluttered and overwhelming. Today, we’re sharing our best tips and tricks to to create an organized laundry closet and keep it clean once and for all!
15 Laundry Closet Organization Ideas
1. Add Shelves
Take any laundry closet or small laundry room to the next level by adding open shelving! We’re loving these easy-to-install shelves that are perfect for any small space.
2. Use a peg board
What can you do with a peg board in your laundry room? Add shelves to it, hanging storage, hang your ironing board, broom, supplies, and so much more. We love saving space with a peg board!
3. Store miscellaneous items in baskets
Have miscellaneous items in your laundry closet that need a home? Use storage baskets to keep smaller items and make them look organized! Baskets are also beautiful and perfect as decor.
4. Use curtains
If your laundry closet is more like a laundry “area” in your home, you can tuck it away by adding curtains. Another option is to add curtains to the storage area on top of your washer and dryer!
5. Use doors
Want to give your laundry area a cleaner look? Add foldable or sliding doors to the area to truly convert it into a closet!
6. Hang your ironing board
If you use an ironing board, save on space by hanging it up behind a door or tuck it away between your washer and dryer. You can also hang your steamer behind a door as well!
7. Install a drying rack
Install a drying rack or hanging bar over your washer and dryer to save space! Can’t hang a drying rack? Use a foldable drying rack instead!
8. Use the backs of doors
Need extra space? The backs of doors are often overlooked as an area to store smaller items! Add a door rack to the back of your laundry room or closet door for storing laundry soaps, sprays, stain removers, lint rollers, and other small items.
9. Add counter space
Add butcher block on top of your washer and dryer for more counter space in your laundry closet. This also helps make the space look more organized and put together!
10. Add hooks
You’d be surprised how adding hooks to the bottoms of your laundry room shelves can organize the space! Use them to hang brushes, linens, microfiber cloths, or other miscellaneous items.
11. Use a skinny laundry room cart
Store anything and everything in a rolling laundry room cart that’s perfect for keeping in small spaces! Whether you store it behind a door or in between the washer and dryer, this cart is perfect for organizing a small laundry closet.
12. Use clear containers for detergent
Invest in matching, clear containers to store your laundry detergent in. We’re loving these OXO POP containers because they come with a scoop that’s perfect for dry detergents! For liquid detergents, try using large mason jars for easy pouring.
13. Keep a 3-bag hamper close by
Need a system for organizing your dirty clothes? A 3-bag hamper makes life SO much easier! This one rolls, making it easy to bring it from your closet (or bedroom) to the laundry room. And everything is already separated, saving you time and energy!
14. Decorate the space
Take your small laundry room to the next level by adding decor! This can help give it a beautiful and organized feel. Whether it’s a pretty sign or faux flowers, adding a little touch of decor can make the space feel like home.
15. Add plants
Don’t know where to start with decor? Adding fresh or faux plants to your laundry space is a great way to make it feel fresh and organized. Try a small, low-light plant to get started!
