If you’re lucky enough to have a laundry room, you know how useful this space can be. You don’t have to worry about washing and drying clothes in the mudroom, basement or hallway – instead, you have a space solely dedicated to taking care of your apparel, linens and everything in between. But with this efficient room comes more responsibility, and it’s common to let it fall by the wayside. After all, you’re more concerned about using it for cleaning purposes, not keeping the room itself clean.
Now’s the perfect time to think about how you can give your home the upgrade it deserves. Here are a few tips for organizing your laundry room:
Make use of storage units.
A custom storage unit can come in handy in the laundry room, creating a space for all cleaning supplies, dirty clothes and folded laundry that’s not only efficient but also sleek and stylish.
Create a lost and found bin.
Beyond laundry detergent, fabric softener and bleach, what else seems to take up unnecessary space in your laundry room? Mismatched socks and other miscellaneous clothing items. Instead of letting these pieces take over your floor space, create a “lost and found” bin to store everything that’s out of place.
Vow to clean the space on a regular basis.
If you want to keep this space in order year-round, you need to vow to clean it up and keep it tidy on a regular basis. Schedule a certain day of the week for a quick clean sweep so the space never has a chance to get out of control again.
