Of all the rooms in your house, few spaces collect more clutter than the laundry room. Between cleaning supplies and piles of clothing, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed when trying to get this area organized. If you have children or pets, it is especially important to keep things like potentially hazardous cleaning supplies out of reach and properly stored. To that end, we have come up with three simple tips to help you change the way you organize your laundry room, straight from our experts in custom laundry room design.
Ironing boards can be such a hassle to work with. Whether you have an old-fashioned standing board or a pull-down one that can be hard to unfold, wrestling with these contraptions is a headache you can definitely do without, so ask about our stow-away ironing boards. These wonderful ironing boards easily pull out from a drawer, rotate 180 degrees, and make the perfect surface to iron your more delicate items.
In place of a clothesline, which can be cumbersome and is not always a viable option for various reasons, consider installing a hydraulic pull-down unit. This gives you a place to hang and dry delicate items that you cannot iron or put in the dryer.
Tired of having to lug your laundry hampers down the hall to the laundry room, leaving a trail of dirty clothes behind you? Do you struggle with finding ways to conceal your laundry hamper from sight without making it inconvenient to access? Replace your traditional hamper with a tilt-out hamper designed to blend seamlessly with your bedroom closet or laundry room cabinets. Our hampers even offer convenient pullout features, allowing you to carry them back and forth without hassle.
Proper Storage Options
Since most cleaning supplies can be harmful to pets and small children, it is important to keep them out of reach. The most common place to store potentially hazardous materials such as detergent and softener is under the sink, but children and pets can open those cabinet doors easier than you might suspect. The best place to keep cleaning supplies in the laundry room is above the washer and dryer in cabinets or on a shelf. Invest in adjustable shelving if you like to keep your cleaning supplies in their original packaging. If you’d rather do without the bulky boxes and bottles that do not always fit neatly into standard cabinets, consider storing your cleaning materials in transparent, air-tight containers.
By following these simple steps and organizing your storage system, you can transform your laundry room from a cluttered mess to a clean and neat haven for your clothes. The laundry room doesn’t have to be a source of chaos, clutter and contention; get a storage system that you will use and love for years to come with laundry room organization solutions from Organizers Direct.
