The value of this chore lies in its soothing routine and the satisfaction taken at the end result: a basket of still-warm, freshly folded clean clothes. Make the time spent getting to that result more enjoyable with our ideas for sprucing up your laundry room.
Every organizational trick in this cute and quirky laundry room is a DIY hack. Turn jelly jars into cute catchalls for loose change and buttons. A wooden ladder can be used as a hanging station, and an old ironing board can become a bulletin board. There's no limit to the treasures you can make with your trash!
For large families with lots of laundry, consider doubling up with two stackable units that save time and space. An oversize table makes a pleasant spot for folding laundry, ironing, sewing, or even working on crafts.
Not ready to invest time and money in a major renovation? Try this simple fix that has big impact: Place a vintage table between the washer and dryer for additional storage.
Put things that you love but no longer use, such as this doll house, to playful yet practical use. Anchored to the wall with decorative brackets, it becomes the highlight in an otherwise understated room. Each room of the doll house makes an easy-to-access cubby for laundry supplies.
Many laundry rooms pull double duty. This one, with its location near the garden, makes an ideal potting area, too. If you're planning to add a sink, position it near the washer to save steps. A linoleum floor offers easy cleanup.
This ironing board folds up and slides neatly out of the way in a customized drawer when not in use. For a similar solution at less-than-custom prices, try an ironing cupboard, a shallow cabinet that holds a foldaway ironing board and supplies. Or use the simple over-the-door ironing board.
With these simple DIY projects your entry way will be as stylish and welcoming as you are. Make your home's first room your favorite space.
