The laundry room in this house had TONS of potential! I filled a large gap with an Ikea wardrobe for extra pantry storage, we added a cabinet top with a shelf above the washer/drier, added tons of hooks for bags/coats, shoe storage, and built a laundry basket tower! Video Rating: / 5

Window coverings can make or break a room, but they’re also easy to update! H&H’s Reiko Caron shows how she used readymade Walmart hometrends™ drapes to give one room three very different looks.
Style and function are equally important when it comes to curtains. Here, Reiko starts with blue black-out drapes with a subtle geometric print — ideal for a TV room or bedroom. For linen-look curtains with a damask print, Reiko added drama and volume by doubling up the panels on both sides of the window. Then, she used a bold ikat print drapes to offer privacy but still let the light in. Grommet-top and rod pocket drapes each offer a unique style. A versatile black curtain rod and finial set works with all three color palettes.

Summertime is about getting together with your friends and having a blast. It is about playing in the creek, hanging out at the public pool, and then barbecuing late into the evening.
What summertime isn’t about is cleaning. No one wants to spend their summer wading through a messy laundry room, but if you aren’t careful that is exactly what you are going to end up doing.
That is because counter to rational thinking, summertime accrues far more dirty laundry than any other time of year. One would think that with all of those layers, you would go through more laundry in the winter. However, that isn’t the case.
In the summertime you might wear fewer clothes, but you also end up changing much more often. This is especially true during those summer heat waves when you can’t help but pour sweat every time you leave the house. And don’t forget about trips to the pool, hiking excursions, and how strongly your clothes smell after sitting around a campfire.
All of this adds up to having piles upon piles of laundry in your laundry room. And while there is nothing you can do to cut down on the amount of laundry you are going to have, you can take preventative measures to make sure things are organized.
That’s right, the best plan is to think ahead and make sure you organize your laundry room at the beginning of the summer. This will make sure you have the rest of the season to just get out and enjoy the sunshine. Here are a few great ways to keep your laundry room clean today.
Triple Storage Bin W/Black Frame and 2.5 Inch Casters
Even just one person living alone amasses a crazy amount of dirty laundry during the summer months. But add a few more people into the mix and the laundry room becomes exponentially more crowded. Even living with just a few family members or roommates can turn your laundry room into a complete mess.
This amazing organizational tool is perfect for organizing the laundry of several people. With three separate storage bins you can easily just make one for whites, one for colors, and one for delicates. That way everyone keeps their things nice and organized.
You also don’t even have to use this remarkable storage solution for laundry at all. These removable bins are also great for things like toys, sports equipment, and anything you need to get organized and out of the way. It even glides around on convenient casters.
Another way that a laundry room can get incredibly overrun with junk is with all of the items we need to actually clean our laundry. Once again, the more people you have the more laundry materials you are going to have. Even if you share the same laundry detergent, odds are you might have different preferences for dryer sheets, and on and on and on.
This Roll Out Laundry Caddy is a great way to not only store all of your laundry essentials, but it is also a great way to store them out of the way. You can easily slide it right back in between your washer and drier thanks to its compact design.
And while it is designed to fit into tight spaces, this laundry caddy still has three shelves to hold plenty of laundry materials. It is great for keeping detergent, fabric softener, drier sheets, your iron, and anything else you may need to keep out of the way. It glides around on convenient casters so you can take it anywhere around the laundry room you need to go.
Overdoor Laundry Hanger
For many people, the absolute worst part of doing their laundry is having to iron all of their clothes afterward. This is normally caused by waiting too long after the dryer is done to take them out.
In fact, if you can get your clothes out and folded as soon as the dryer goes off, you more often than not do not actually have to iron your clothes at all. And that is exactly what the Overdoor Laundry Hanger is for.
This brilliant device can mount right over any door in your laundry room. It is great for hanging up any clothes that you want to make sure don’t get turned into a wrinkled mess when you take them out of the dryer.

Doing laundry can be one of the best chores to take on or it can be one of the worst. For starters, let’s think about the best case scenario.
How can there be a best case scenario for laundry, you ask? Well think of it this way. In a perfect world you just have to go down to your laundry room, throw everything in, and then you have a half hour to an hour to relax, work on some other things, or go for a walk while the laundry is washing. Then you just pop back in, throw everything in the dryer, and go about your business for another hour until your clothes are dry.
That’s the best case scenario. It’s a great chore because it doesn’t really require much effort. You washer and dryer does all the real work for you.
But if you have a disorganized laundry room then washing and drying your clothes can be frustrating and time-consuming. There is nothing worse than having to search for all of your laundry supplies, and then having nowhere to fold your clothes when they come out of the dryer. All of these things can make doing your laundry incredibly frustrating.
With the right laundry room storage solutions, however, you can get your laundry done easily. The right laundry room organizers are essential for keeping a tidy space, especially when you share a laundry room with roommates, family members, or your significant other. When you utilize these laundry room storage solutions you can guarantee yourself a nice, relaxing laundry day experience.
To really do your laundry right you need a lot of accessories. Of course you need things like laundry detergent, but dryer sheets can also leave your clothes smelling nice and fresh. Also, you don’t want your clothes coming out of the dryer stiff and uncomfortable. By using fabric softener your clothes will feel nice and soft.
And these are just a few of the laundry needs that we all use. You also have stain sticks and irons and bleach and all sorts of other supplies. Without the right storage tools, these things can get scattered all over the place in your laundry room.
But when you use the laundry caddy you can keep all of your tools in one place, while simultaneously keeping them all out of the way. The great thing about the laundry caddy is that it is just perfect for rolling in and out of that little space between your washer and dryer.
Have no fear of making a mess because all your laundry items stay in place thanks to the handy raised rails on the side. There is some assembly required but the three shelf design makes this storage solution more than worthwhile.
Washing Machine Wire Shelf
Have lots of laundry supplies that need storage, but lack the extra little space for the handy laundry caddy? Well you can still make the most of your underused laundry room areas with the washing machine wire shelf.
You can put this shelf right on top of your washer or dryer. This allows you to keep your supplies right on hand, while keeping them off the floor. By putting all of your detergents and things above your washer, you are also keeping them out of the hands of young children, while still being easily accessible for adults.
This shelf is made from sturdy steel wire, but it has also been coated in white vinyl. This way you won’t scratch up the surfaces of yoru appliances.
Overdoor Laundry Hanger
One of the keys to making your laundry experience nice and easy is avoiding having to iron your clothes. The best way to do this is to get all of your clothes folded or hung up right when they get out of the dryer. You can’t wait around and get to the dryer an hour or so after the cycle has finished. But if you can be there and ready when it is done then you shouldn’t have to worry about ironing.
When you have the overdoor laundry hanger installed in your bathroom you can easily hang up to ten shirts, dresses, or pairs of pants without taking up too much space. The nice thing about this laundry hanger is that you can easily fold it down when it is not in use. It has a locking mechanism so that it snaps in place and will easily hold up all your clothes.
Inside of the bracket there is also felt padding installed. This will make sure that the surface of your door doesn’t get scratched up. Never worry about ironing again with a little help from the overdoor laundry hanger.
Doing your laundry doesn’t have to be frustrating and time consuming. Organizer your laundry room with these storage solutions and make laundry day something you can look forward too.

There is nothing more discouraging than a messy laundry room. Condensing the mess is a great step to making it a more pleasant task.
In the first place, laundry is a thankless task. After just one wearing, laundry is right back in the hamper waiting to be washed all over again. If you can make the laundry environment just a bit more appealing, you will find it less of chore. The secret is bringing some order to the laundry room.
Make more room
The first trick is to make more room in the laundry room. This means you need to make better use of the unused spaces. For example, most laundry rooms can make use of the space between the washer and the dryer. With as little as 8 inches, you can add a set of narrow wicker drawers that fit between the washer and dryer. These four graduated drawers hold fabric softener sheets, stain sticks and even your eye glasses so you can read the tags on clothing. The plastic front resembles hand-woven wicker. It measures 36 inches high, 19 inches deep and 8 inches wide.
With just about the same amount of space, you can add a roll-out laundry caddy that stores some taller items, like laundry detergent, fabric softener and the iron. The sturdy melamine caddy has three open shelves with raised side rails to keep the products in place. The caddy is set on dual track casters, so it easily rolls out and goes back in between the dryer and washer. It measures 31 inches high, 25 inches deep and 8 3/8 inches wide. Some assembly is required.
Sometimes the best way to get rid of clutter is to go up. The fold down overdoor laundry hanger gives you a closet where there is not one. It creates a place to hang clothing when it comes out of the dryer or if the laundry instructions recommend line drying. It is made with a locking hinge that supports 10 hangers. When it’s not in use, simply fold it down and way. There is felt padding on the inside of the bracket so it won’t scratch the surface and it fits over most doors.
A simple way to air dry your laundry is with a set of five hanging clips. Made to fit over a towel rod or wire shelving, these drip dry hanging clothespins let you air dry anything from delicates to towels to socks. Their no-slip teeth keep your clothes hung up and off the floor.
If you have ever seen the laundry carts in a Laundromat and thought they would be useful at home, you are in luck. Laundry carts are available in everything from commercial size to personal butler size.
The laundry butler is compact enough to fit in the smallest laundry rooms. The chromed steel frame has 3-inch industrial wheels with double locks and a large basket to hold your laundry. You can hang wet or dry garments on the valet bar that rises above the basket. There is a bottom shelf underneath the basket that can store laundry soap and other supplies. It measures 67½ inches high, 24½ inches wide and more than 20 inches deep.
If you are looking for something with more storage space, consider the classic antique bronze laundry center with its three heavy duty, removable canvas laundry bags. It also comes with two bags – one for lingerie and one for sweaters. Hanging above the three laundry bags is a crossbar where you can hang the clothing you just ironed. There is also a high shelf for storing clean clothes or laundry accessories. The laundry center will roll across your home on smooth rolling casters with two locking wheels. The bronze finish on the steel frame is attractive enough you won’t want to rush to put it away. It measures 72 inches high, 30 inches wide and 18 inches deep.
If counter space is at a premium in your laundry room, then you probably could use some extra space where you can fold your laundry. This steel, rolling laundry station offers extra space and more. The cart’s two shelves hold detergent, fabric softener, folded clothing and more. There is a slide-out wire basket that can hold small items, like stain sticks, clothes pins and scissors to clip loose threads. When closed, the melamine doors on top can be used to fold laundry. They open to reveal a removable canvas bag. All this rolls along on casters and measures 31 inches high, 26¼ inches wide and 18 inches deep.
Another easy way to increase space is with a wire shelf that mounts over the top of a washer or dryer. Measuring 26½ inches long and 10 inches wide, the vinyl coated shelf will easily hold detergent bottles and boxes.
Make laundry less of a chore by condensing the mess so you can focus on getting the wash done and getting back to your family.
