No matter your setup, try one of these ideas to maximize your space and storage in your laundry.
Once upon a time, I 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 of readers was Yeah, right! I wish! and you explained that your real-life laundry rooms were small areas, tiny closets, or corners of basements.
So here, I’ve got you covered with almost FORTY ideas and inspiration for those small laundry spaces.

Small Laundry Room Ideas: Multi-Task the Space
When you’re crunched for space, double up on uses for a room by putting the washer and dryer in a bathroom, garage, mudroom, or hallway or using the laundry room for tool storage or an office.

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!
I love them all. I recently redid my laundry “closet”
you can see it here https://choresandchandeliers.blogspot.com/2012/11/laundry-closet-makeover.html
Love the rustic wood shelves!
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.
All of these are great! My laundry room is a small walk through that leads to the garage. Several months ago, I spruced it up with a nice rug and pops of color. It’s so much more pleasant to be in now.
It is amazing how big a deal those little changes can make!
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!
These are some great inspirations! My laundry room is tiny and could definitely use some remodeling, Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for including my laundry closet. There are so many great ideas here. Thank you for sharing!
You are welcome Leanne!
Anytime you awesome inspiration giver!
There are some GREAT ideas here! Pinning for later.
what fun ideas! I want to do something to my laundry room…excited to see you at Haven!!
Yes! I hope I can take your class!! YAY!
Thanks so much for the mention! I love the other ideas too!
You are welcome!
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.
Sounds like you have a new project on the list!!! Good Luck!
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.
As sad as it is to have to spend money to buy new machines it is always exciting! Hope you are enjoying them!
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.
These are all great ideas! I just completed a redo of my hallway laundry closet. You can check it out here….. https://mynearlyemptynest.blogspot.com/2013/07/laundry-room-makeover.html
Great job Jenny!
I am interested in smaller stackable washers and dryers…..brands to look for, retailers who carry them.
I don’t know! Sorry, you could Google search it!
I love my laundry room, you can check it out here https://designdreamsbyanne.blogspot.ca/2014/05/affordable-easy-diy-floor-for-mudroom.html
