Laundry room organizing and storage ideas


An organized laundry room doesn’t make the drudgery of matching up thirty socks fresh out of the dryer any less onerous, but at least you can go into the task knowing there’s a place for everything and everything is in its place. Storage and organizing solutions in a laundry room can and should be practical, but if ever there’s a chance to express your experimental and on-trend side, this is it. Love bold fabric prints but don’t want to commit to it in the living room? This is your place. In ten years, you’re not going to regret getting a chevron print fabric basket instead of a plain canvas one. But above all, take the time to consider how you use the room and what you need but don’t have. No sense buying hampers that are too small, or a storage shelf that doesn’t fit your tall bottle of washing machine detergent. With that in mind, here are 10 fantastic solutions to organize your laundry room.

Open shelf and hutch

Laundry rooms sometimes double as storage areas for linens and other household detergents and bottles. In such a case, an open shelf and hutch combo can make a comely addition to a multi-purpose space. Hutton open shelf hutch, Restoration Hardware, from $339 USD.

Divided hamper

Sometimes you just need two hampers and there’s no way around it. Dark clothing on one side, lights and whites on the other. A divided hamper, like this one in a dark handwoven seagrass with removable canvas liners, is just the solution. Perry divided hamper in Havana weave, Pottery Barn, $271.

Procedure charts

Although technically not an organizing or storage helper, we love the idea of including art in the laundry room. Part decorating touch and part practical poster, a stain-removal or laundry treatment chart is a smart addition to a too-bare laundry room wall. The Laundry print set, Etsy, $67.

Laundry soap jar

Powdered detergent adherents (your humble writer is one of them) know that the cardboard boxes the detergent comes in are not only messy but are also not airtight and the powder goes stale by the end of it. Try a lidded soap jar. A beautiful one like this will keep contents fresh and is just plain pretty to look at. You can easily make one yourself with a label, or simply buy a pre-printed one. Laundry room laundry soap jar label, Etsy, $6.

Graphic hamper

When it comes to hampers, it’s worth putting a little thought into how much storage space you’ll need, but it probably pays to err on the generous side. Graphic-printed handwoven baskets are effortlessly stylish and can be pressed into service elsewhere in the home should you ever want to repurpose them for toys or entryway storage. Graphic printed hamper, West Elm, $227.

Modular shelving

Built-in cabinets in the laundry room, even if they are ready made and affordable are not always practical. Enter the genius of modular shelving. It works particularly well in a laundry room because everything is visible and easy to reach without opening and closing doors – handy when you’ve got a basket of laundry in one arm. MAX Laundry chrome modular shelving set, Crate and Barrel, $643.
