11 Laundry Room Organization Ideas
I’m sure a few of these ideas will make an appearance when I do my laundry room reveal! Here are some great ideas for organizing your laundry area! But first, here are some general laundry room organizing tips:
Organizing Your Laundry Room
When it comes to arranging your laundry room, the little things really add up. Making subtle changes can make a significant impact on how it looks and feels. Once you have everything organized, it’s going to be a lot less tempting to toss something here or there when it has a place to go. Take a look at these steps to get you started:
Steps To Organize Your Laundry Room
1. Get rid of items you no longer need. Do you have things like broken hangers, empty soap bottles, socks you’ve been hanging onto forever looking for the match? If so, it’s time to get rid of them. You no longer have a use for these items, and they are taking up valuable space. Go through everything and decide if it’s worth keeping, trashing, donating, or selling.
2. Clean all of your laundry room top to bottom. You’ll be amazed at all the lint and dust bunnies that are hiding in your laundry room. If you are looking to keep it organized, start off right by cleaning everything. It will look and smell amazing. That feeling will keep you striving to make it stay that way.
3. Utilize the space you have. If you don’t have a large laundry room, don’t worry! There are plenty of ways to utilize the space available. Think outside of the box. If you have some vertical space, hang shelves or baskets to make up for a narrow laundry room. The options are endless if you use all the space you have available.
4. Make sure everything has a proper place and stick with it. Use labels, baskets, or bins to make it visible where each item goes. That way, no matter who is in there, they will be able to tell where to find each piece and that it needs to be put back there. Labeling everything that you can ends up saving you time in the end! Here are some free printable labels for organizing!

I have laundry closets. One has a lot of wire shelving that is shared with the master bath. The other is a typical accordian door type closet for a washer and dryer. Some day I will tackle that and make it awesome. That w/d closet is upstairs near where the second master is. It will be fun to decorate!

I’ve never had a proper laundry either Manuela! The one I have now is downright scary! I wish I had a spacious, bright room dedicated just for laundry like a real grown up :(.
Great ideas here! Those pullout shelves are awesome!
