Give Your Laundry Room Some Summer Lovin’
Summer means days at the pool, weeks at the beach… and piles of extra laundry in the form of swimsuits, play clothes, and towels. While there’s little you can do about the added washing and drying, you can remodel your laundry room so that these tasks are easier to perform, minimizing the amount of time you spend on chores. With a few simple tricks, and some carefully chosen additions, you can change this area of the house from an eyesore to an oasis. After all, if you have to spend time in your laundry room, you might as well enjoy the view. Learn more about the best laundry room organizers for making this part of the home functional, tidy, and attractive.
Sort Items by Color
If you have a big pile of clothing that needs laundering, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. And if you haven’t sorted the clothes in advance, you’re even less likely to accomplish this task on time. Minimize the hours you spend washing and drying by setting up your laundry room so it’s easy to sort clothes ahead of time. For example, you might want to include a three-piece clothes hamper with sections for white clothing, bright colors, and delicates. That way, when laundry day arrives, all you have to do is toss the contents of one hamper in the washing machine and hit start.
Add Some Bins and Basket
Of course, laundry hampers aren’t the only storage containers you need to stay organized. You should also consider picking up some smaller baskets and bins to keep other items out of the work area. Along with laundry detergent, fabric softener, and dryer sheets, the laundry room is a good place to store sheets and towels if you don’t have a linen closet. Not only are woven baskets handy for keeping your laundry room in shape, but they’re also more attractive than plastic containers, so you won’t have to rush past your laundry area with your eyes closed.
Install Corner Shelving
If your laundry room is on the small side, you might be wondering where to put shelves. If there isn’t sufficient wall space, consider installing a corner shelving unit. These out-of-the-way shelf options are perfect for storing lighter cleaning supplies and sprays. Additionally, you can display a few decorative pieces here, such as a candle with a fresh linen scent or a framed photo. If you’re still in need of some extra space, think about installing a narrow slide-out rack between the washer and dryer.
