I also wanted to share with you some great tips on  how to create a more efficient space in your laundry room from  Jenny Komenda, decorator and blogger at The Little Green Notebook.

Jenny’s tips for overhauling and organizing your laundry room:

Tip #1:

Dealing with a dark, cave-like laundry room is a chore in and of itself! By taking off the doors on a few of your upper cabinets, you’ll open up the space and create a place to store baskets. In this laundry room, we assigned baskets for every member of the house, which makes sorting a breeze!

 

Tip #2:

Why not decoupage or paint insides of cabinets for a fun pop of color? It’s a guaranteed smile each and every time you reach for your detergent.

 

Tip #3:

Don’t like the cabinets, floors and countertops in your laundry room? Every surface can be painted or resurfaced! For less than $30 in materials, the outdated linoleum, brick pavers and old, dark cabinets were updated in this laundry room with paint and with a concrete overlay product.

 

Tip #4

A rolling laundry butler can be your best friend, doing triple duty with a hanging bar, a rolling basket and a drying rack. It’s the perfect choice for a laundry room with limited space that hasn’t been updated in a few decades.

 

Tip #5:

Don’t neglect your laundry room walls! Hanging interesting art and mirrors will elevate your room and make it feel less utilitarian and more “homey”. Suddenly those 400 loads of laundry most of us will do this year might actually be enjoyable!

 

Tip #6:

Use a slab of stone or a simple piece of painted MDF on top of the washer/dryer units to create a folding station and to prevent socks from slipping in between the appliances.

    I do have board on top of my washer and dryer which is front loading and use it to put folded clothese and separate till ready to put up works very well, thank you.

    Painting the laundry area sounds like a great idea! A lot of the time it is area that gets ignored, but sprucing it up might motivate to get to washing some more.
