The hectic lifestyle of modern days doesn’t allow us to spend much time taking care of our homes. So every task must be optimized in order to get the best result with the least amount of effort. Let’s see together how to organize a laundry room.
The ideal solution would be to assign a small area or room to be your utility room. A dedicated space fitted with all useful means for washing, drying, ironing and storing. It can fitted with wall mounted cabinets, units and open shelves to safely store all your cleaning products.
Even if your laundry room is well hidden behind doors it’s still a part of your home and so it should match the rest of your décor style as much as possible. See the photos below to get an idea of how your laundry décor can vary from modern to vintage.

Storage Units for Detergents and Towels
As mentioned before storage plays an important role in a functional laundry room. So to better manage the space you should equip your laundry with furniture and cabinets to contain detergents or to store towels. We selected some ideas that can fit large or small spaces.
You just can’t have a well equipped laundry without a good ironing board. Although many people believe that “clothes iron themselves in the dryer” unfortunately that just ins’t enough.
There are some garments that really don’t meet the grade unless are properly ironed, among all the classic man’s office shirt, which needs to be absolutely ironed. Take a look at our ironing boards ideas, we selected a classic solution, a space saver and multi-purpose solution.
Unfortunately not all clothes can be machine washed, because of their delicate fibre composition, some they need to be hand washed. Here is an idea of the perfect wash tub.
Clothes Rack and Coat Hangers
As we said before if not all garments can be washed in the washing machine, it is logical that not all the garments can be dried in the tumble dryer. As they likely will not withstand the heat.
We suggest a vertical and a ceiling mounted clothes racks, which do not take up too much space but they are very capacious at the same time. And where do we put our beloved man’s shirts once we iron them, since they wrinkle just by looking at them? We have a solution for everything: a wall-mounted coat hanger, useful and discreet!

Now that you have all the tools you can create your perfect laundry room. I assure you that you’ll regret not having done this before. For more interior design tips & ideas check out our blog section.
