While our laundry room isn’t the most glamorous room of the house, it is one of the most functional.
It’s also one of the rooms that is the EASIEST to get piled high with stacks of dirty (or clean) clothes, muddy tennis shoes, or that mysterious “donate” bin that never seems to make it to the donation center.
(Or is that just at my house?)
Over the summer, I got into the habit of doing laundry everyday… thanks to the FlyLady system. This has turned out to be a great way of doing things, but it certainly keeps our little laundry room busy! And if we’re going to spend that much time in a room, it might as well look cute, right?!
So here are some creative design and organization ideas that I found on Pinterest (I don’t know how I got through life without Pinterest)!
Let me know if you’ve tried any and which ones are your favorites! 🙂
Dirty Clothes Storage
First of all, a great system for storing dirty clothes is pretty essential… after all, that’s what a laundry room is all about, right?! I love these modern and stylish bins for separating laundry BEFORE it’s time to wash it! (And I hate sifting through a giant pile of dirty clothes to pull out all the towels, etc.) This room by Von Fitz Design is so fresh and gorgeous!

Cleaning Supply Storage
Another thing about laundry rooms is that they hold all this just… awkward. stuff. Brooms, mops, ironing boards, etc. Plus all of the cleaning supplies that go along with them. I love this idea from iHeartOrganizing (of course!) of using a utility board to help store those items on the wall!

Laundry Room Prints
I really love the idea of livening up our boring little space with some cute framed prints! Here are some super cute laundry ones from Everyday Best (you can also find it here) that look chic and are also functional. I don’t know about you, but I have literally never paid attention to these little symbols on my clothes before (oops). Fun and functional. It’s a win-win! 🙂
If you’re looking for beautiful inspiration (for literally anything), look to A Beautiful Mess. I LOVE these single hooks that Elsie used in her laundry room (similar)! They can spaced out, making the room feel less crammed and cluttered. The hanging planters are a great way to add some personality to the room without taking up any counter space! And I also love… everything. Just everything.

This tiny shelf looks like the perfect way to sneak in a little more storage space! It’s only five inches wide! Five inches! It looks like a storage must for tight spaces!
Feeling inspired yet? Me, too! I also feel mini shopping spree coming on 🙂
