Maximize storage and learn how to best utilize your laundry space with these great ideas!

Awhile back, I shared a link on Facebook to a past post where I had featured some real-life laundry rooms by fellow bloggers with the sentiment that these were based in reality and not in Pinterest. The resounding response was hahaha! I wish! and most responded that your real-life laundry rooms were small areas, tiny closets, or corners of basements. So today, I’ve rounded up almost FORTY ideas and inspiration for truly tiny and awkward areas, those small laundry spaces. Check out these great ways to maximize space and storage, tricks to make the space seem larger, even tips for making your laundry space multi-functional.

    Fun! Thanks ♥ My laundry is in a very tiny, skinny half bath, and in a rental unit, so I’m always looking for tiny bath redoes to inspire! I’ve pinned several of these from their sources, and this post as well :)

    In awe of some of those spaces… I have a small laundry area that is boring so this was right on time. Thank you!

    So many fantastic ideas here. When my set finally bites the dust, I will remake my laundry room and stackables are a must on my list.

  4. Crystal says

    Great ideas!! My laundry room is in the garage :( but my husband has put shelves and I’ve tried to make the best out of it.

      I know, how ya feel. Our current laundry room is a utility room/laundry combo with two HUGE ugly heaters. It is not pretty, but our clothes get cleaned and that is what counts for me right now!

    Love the idea of the laundry storage closet. I hate the fact that when people come over to my house they can see my washer and dryer, would love to be able to hide it.

    I love these tips! Most of us don’t have the luxury of having the huge laundry rooms that are all over pinterest- but constantly seeing those images can make it feel like that’s the only way to have a functioning space to do the laundry. It’s refreshing to see how usable AND stylish even the tiniest spaces can be!

    Hello! Thanks so much for posting our “secret” laundry room. Our machines finally kicked the bucket…so we bought new ones, but we have the same setup. Still love it! I love looking at other people’s laundry rooms.

  8. Melodie Whitbey says

    These are beautiful ideas…and I’m jealous! My laundry room is in the unfinished portion of our basement. I need ideas of how to inexpensively make it look nice so I don’t feel like I’m in the dungeon! I have the sorting and organizing with baskets down to a science already.

    I am interested in smaller stackable washers and dryers…..brands to look for, retailers who carry them.

    Thank you,
