If you hardly have room for your clothing, let alone a hamper, a collapsible pick like this one is a smart space-saver. Fold it when you’re not using it, and it slides into a sliver of space — say, between a washer and dryer.
Wooden shelves provide convenient storage for cleaning supplies in this charming laundry room. Neutral walls keep the space feeling nice and clean, while woven laundry baskets are a beautiful upgrade from plain jane plastic. A large glass canister is used to store powdered detergent.
For this laundry room, Mark Warren of Warren Home Restorations Inc. wanted to combine efficient storage and ample light with pleasing design that would blend with the rest of the home. An apron-front sink makes a pretty stand-in for a utility sink. To the right, specially sized niches hold laundry baskets that make sorting and toting a snap.
This cheerful laundry room also functions as the mud room for the young family. The tile floor and walls are easy to clean. Storage is a mix of closed cabinets, open shelving, pretty baskets and even lockers for each family member.
Interesting pulls and playful tiles take the basic white backdrop of this laundry room and turn the look into something fun. A rug on the floor adds another cozy texture. Wire baskets make organizing linens a snap.
Who says a laundry room can't be fun? For this young family, Cheryl Scarlet of Design Transformations orchestrated a cheery, whimsical space with a bird-and-butterfly print wallpaper. The open shelving corrals portable laundry baskets, one for each family member and an extra for dry cleaning items. A pretty wall-mounted drying rack serves as a focal point and adds the illusion of a window.
To add color to this elegant, yet still functional laundry room, designers added a blue laundry basket on wheels which can be ported wherever is necessary and a pink floral print to accent the green tones in the wallpaper and the cabinets.
