Clever storage for the laundry room

Clever storage for the laundry room

A well thought out layout

The laundry room Often comes down to a reduced space of a few square meters that must be optimized: so start by having wall shelves that can cross the whole room and rise almost to the ceiling. You will place on them many storage boxes that will allow you to no longer leave your laundry products and other laundry items of all kinds lying around.

Have a medium board installed approximately at waist level to act as a worktop: you can fold the laundry there as you like, but also slide your various household appliances (washing machine, dryer) )… And thus gain precious square meters!

Also opt for laundry bins that will allow you to properly sort in your light and dark clothes, delicate or resistant to hot washing, etc. For each member of your family to participate in this household task, adopt a fun storage system. With a week and a drawer for each person (or several storage baskets with handles with a small name slate, for example), everyone can bring their dirty laundry and return with their clean freshly ironed laundry!

Adapted accessories

The laundry room is also the perfect place to store extra pillows, blankets and quilts. Think of vacuum storage covers, perfect for this type of bulky laundry. These have the advantage of occupying 4 times less space than a conventional cover and can easily slip on a shelf.

Finally, if you take advantage of this place to store shoes or your ironing board, think of the storage spaces that are fixed behind the doors. Space saving guaranteed!

In any case, whatever the storage that you will use in your laundry room, remember to bring it some decorative touches that will make this place less austere! White and soft colors are welcome, as are the natural materials which give the room a very pleasant Zen atmosphere on a daily basis.
