Not many people actually enjoy the act of doing laundry. But that’s just all the more reason to create a functional, organized space that allows you to get the job done as quickly as possible.

Of course, not all laundry rooms are created equal. Some of us have spacious rooms on the main floor or upstairs, while others have laundry rooms tucked away in basements across the country. Then there are those genius laundry rooms in closets or the dedicated mudrooms with Pinterest-worthy setups and folding ironing boards and built-in tables.

No matter what your specific setup looks like, we’ve got the best laundry room ideas so you can make your laundry room even more functional and organized. Read on for some of our best laundry room tips in 2022.

  

Laundry Room Idea 1. Install a Laundry Room System From The Home Depot

SPONSORED

No matter how large, small or cluttered your space is, The Home Depot has a laundry room system that’ll transform your space easily. They have whole storage systems you can install on your wall that include shelves, hooks and cabinets, so you can find a place for everything while using your space efficiently. We’ve included a few options below.

Keep in mind, the more elaborate the storage system the more options you have, but the pricier the cost will be.

Flow Wall Modular Laundry Room 16-Piece Set

This is the simplest of The Home Depot’s laundry room storage system offerings. The 16-piece set includes panels, cabinets, hooks and shelves, and the modular design means you can swap things in and out and make it work in your space. The cabinet includes a shelf for an additional surface and everything is made with high-quality polymer and powder-coated steel and built to last for years.

2-Cabinet Modular Laundry Room Storage Set

This slightly larger modular set comes with two cabinets instead of one, six panels for organization, two shelves, six hooks and three bins for smaller items like stain remover and scrubbing brushes. All of the equipment you need to successfully install this system is included with your purchase, and everything is neatly organized on your wall making it easy to grab and elevated off the floor. You can also expand and rearrange this storage system easily to make it fit your space.

4-Cabinet Modular Laundry Room Storage Set

This is the largest and most comprehensive storage system The Home Depot offers without a consultation or custom build, making it a great choice for larger spaces and customers who love cabinets. It comes with six panels that are 8 feet tall, one tall cabinet for cleaning supplies or extra linens, three wall cabinets, two jumbo hard bins and metal bracket shelves as well. The cabinets include adjustable shelves for all your storage needs, and all of the click-in accessories are designed to be easy to install and stay in place.

Laundry Room Idea 2. Hang a Pegboard Wall

Alternatively, if a pre-fab organizational unit won’t work with your small space, you can always consider adding a pegboard wall. These porous wall additions provide perfect places for hooks, baskets, shelves and cabinets, and they can be fully customized to your space as needed.

Laundry Room Idea 3. Install Floating Shelves

If you don’t have space for an entire wall storage system to execute a wall-to-wall laundry room idea, floating shelves are always a functional way to add storage potential.

Laundry Room Idea 4. Elevate Your Washer and Dryer for Extra Storage

If you haven’t stacked your units, consider adding a pedestal to the bottom of your washer and dryer to give you that extra little bit of storage. They work on front and top-load models, but when it comes to front-load models, pedestals also raise and save you from having to bend down so far.

Laundry Room Idea 5. Add a Functional Folding Table

If you have a stacked washer and dryer unit but still want a folding table, consider grabbing a rolling laundry sorter with a table on top. Better yet, take this laundry room idea to the next level and grab one with an ironing board table for some two-in-one action. Bonus points if you can roll the unit to a room with a TV and watch a show or movie while sorting all of your freshly cleaned clothes.

Laundry Room Idea 6. Organize Your Ironing Board

Speaking of ironing boards, they’re kind of clunky and annoying to store. That’s why we love the idea of grabbing a wall- or door-mounted organizer to keep your board — along with the actual iron and any other supplies — neatly tucked away and organized.

Laundry Room Idea 7. Mount Drying Racks to the Wall

Rather than draping air-dry sweaters and shirts over random chairs or on the back of a door, here’s a great laundry room idea: mount your drying rack to the wall. Some models work with flat-dry and hung items alike, and they easily tuck away when not in use.

Laundry Room Idea 8. Hang a Bar

If you don’t have enough space for a wall-mounted drying rack or you don’t like the look of it, you can always add a bar or a stylish pipe to hang your delicate, air-dry items on instead.

Laundry Room Idea 9. Use a Collapsible Rack

No extra wall space for a hanging rack or bar? No problem. Some of the best laundry room ideas are born out of necessity. There are plenty of foldable floor-model drying racks out there, which you can quickly tuck behind or beside a washer or dryer when not in use.

Laundry Room Idea 10. Use Washers and Dryer Sides for Storage

One of the beautiful things about washers and dryers is they work with magnetic organizers, baskets and hooks. Those also happen to be great ways to create extra storage for yourself if you have a tight space.

Laundry Room Idea 11. Put a Roll-Cart Between Machines

Alternatively, if your units aren’t stacked, or you only have a little bit of room to spare beside them, you could always sneak a thin, rolling storage cart between your washer and dryer to store supplies and other key items when not in use.

Laundry Room Idea 12. Separate Laundry With Bins

Take some of the chore out of laundry day by sorting your laundry ahead of time into stackable baskets, which come with the added bonus of keeping clean clothes off the floor if you don’t have time (or the willpower) to fold them just yet.

Laundry Room Idea 13. Organize Lost Socks

Lost socks are an inevitable part of doing laundry, but at least with these organizers, you can have a little fun.

Laundry Room Idea 14. Add Functional Art

If you’ve got the space for laundry-room art, you may as well make it functional. We especially love these designs, which help take some guesswork out of label-reading and stain removal.

Laundry Room Idea 15. Find a Home for Dryer Sheets

Hands up if you are tired of those dryer sheet boxes constantly breaking or collapsing, resulting in a handful of sheets instead of the one you actually need, should you choose to use any in the first place.

Laundry Room Idea 16. Install a Lint Bin

Sure, you could just throw dryer lint in the rubbish, but here’s another great laundry room idea. It’s actually more practical to save it — especially if you like to go camping. (Everyone knows lint makes the best homemade fire starter.)

Laundry Room Idea 17. Add Baskets to Keep Things Orderly

Baskets are an inexpensive and streamlined way to keep random items together in any room. We particularly love them in laundry rooms where extra pocket change, sprays and supplies accumulate.

Laundry Room Idea 18. Use Jars to Organize Supplies

Are jars necessary? Of course not. But they do allow you to quickly see how many supplies you have left while keeping things neat and organized. Now that’s the kind of laundry room idea we like to see — literally. We especially love jars made from plastic or acrylic because they tend to be harder to break than good old-fashioned glass.

Laundry Room Idea 19. Don’t Forget the Labels

Last but not least, don’t forget to grab some labels to keep all of those new baskets and jars organized.
