Clever Ways to Maximize Small Laundry Rooms

Laundry rooms can be both functional and stylish — even if space is limited. The best small laundry rooms use every inch of available space. These small laundry room ideas include hacks such as squeezing more utility out of floating shelves and fitting areas for folding clothes into tight spots.

While there are a number of drying racks to choose from, including some that hang from the ceiling, we love the ease of one that pulls down. If you hand wash a lot of your clothes or have delicate items that you don’t put in the dryer, a rack like this is definitely a smart investment.

Design a Double Duty Work Table

Make the most of the space you have with dual purpose furniture. This roomy dog crate gives Fido a safe space to sleep while homeowners run errands. It also doubles as a functional workstation for folding clothes, organizing loads and tackling everyday stains. Create a similar crate on a smaller scale to suit your space and finally get that unsightly cage out of your kitchen or living room.

Try a Space-Saving Workspace

Less is more is a rule to live by in small spaces. The charming, turned leg table nestled into the corner of this laundry room provides homeowners ample workspace to fold towels and tees without taking up too much floorspace. Add a single leg table to a corner of your laundry room to provide a space saving spot to sort through rogue socks and scrub stains.

Add Touches of Functionality

Design is all in the details and this little laundry room by Kristina Crestin is rich with unexpected ideas to copy for your own home.
