If your house is anything like mine, "laundry" is a 4-letter word. There's just something that sets this chore apart from all the others, making it at least 10 times more aggravating and stressful than any other job around your house. Part of this probably has to do with how cluttered your laundry room is - I'm not saying your home is messy, it just so happens that the laundry room tends to be the least organized place in any house.
Well not anymore! These 7 simple solutions to laundry room clutter will make the weekly wash a breeze, and you'll almost look forward to folding, drying and ironing every week. Almost.
See how many of these ideas belong in your home!
1. Add bracket shelves to the wall
The simplest way to give yourself more space in the laundry room (without building an extension) is adding another surface to the room. Whether your shelves are a place to stack and store, or a workstation for folding, everyone can find a use for these handy and cheap creations. All it takes are some brackets from the hardware store and a bit of wood. Just follow these helpful instructions.
2. The rolling basket dresser
This easy weekend project is a lot like those metal IKEA drawer cabinets, but up-sized for a family of 5. Don't settle for stacking hampers of messy clothes when you can create this life-saver on wheels with a little plywood.
3. Use a door rack
Adding a hanging rack onto your door is like instantly conjuring a floor-to-ceiling shelf out of thin air. My Sweet Savannah gave hers a chalkboard back, so you can label, erase and re-organize to your heart's content.
