Laundry Room Organization Tips

Keep your laundry room organized with our top tips.

We know doing laundry can be a drag. When your laundry room is a mess, it can be even worse. Giving your laundry room some TLC can help you get more organized, and maybe even look forward to your weekly chores!

Create a sorting station. 

Half the battle of doing laundry is sorting it. Putting pre-sorted bins in place will help you stay organized, and cut your laundry time down significantly. To do this, you can simply set out various laundry bins and label them accordingly, or even create a built-in system to utilize your vertical space. Love the built-in idea but want to scale it down? Try a compact, two-shelf unit.


Install an indoor drying rack.

Some clothes require special attention and can’t just be thrown in the drier. Instead of draping clothes across any open space you can find, a wall-mounted drying rack will save you space and help your laundry room stay organized. You can even DIY one out of an old ladder!

Stock your cabinets with storage bins.

If you’re running low on space, or just want to maximize the space you have, use storage bins and shelves to avoid loose items sitting in cabinets. Combine like items such as cleaning supplies, detergents, or towels and store them together.


Glam it up with glass jars.

You can find beautiful glass jars at nearly any store that sells home decor. Use them in your laundry area to organize dryer sheets, wool dryer balls, powered detergent, and stain removers. Glass beverage containers (the type with a spout) can also be used for liquid detergents and fabric softeners.
