Winnipeg Home Renovations: Storage Solutions For a Small Laundry Room

Small laundry storage solutions

Piles of laundry are never ending. No one wants to spend their days cleaning clothes in a dingy old laundry room. Don’t let small space get you down. Finding storage solutions in Winnipeg for this frequently used area doesn’t need to be a chore. There are plenty of ways to configure this space and make it functional and calming.

1. Use Your Machines’ Exteriors

The washer and dryer take up most of the elbow room, so why not use them? Affix baskets and hooks to the sides of your machine with adhesive. Use them to store lightweight items like rags, scrub brushes or clothespins.

2.Install a Countertop

Don’t let surfaces go to waste if you have a side-by-side washer and dryer unit. Washing machines are the perfect height for a countertop. Use laminate or butcher block for a budget-friendly topper. Have one of our professionals cut and install it across the top of your machines. You’ll have an instant workspace to ample sort and fold at the perfect height.

3. Elevate Your Washer and Dryer

Consider stacking your washer and dryer. You can stack most front-loader units with special stacking kits. When on top of each other, machines need to be level, or they could topple. These units are heavy and difficult to lift. Keep yourself safe and call home renovations in Winnipeg to help with this task.

Before you stack, think about daily use. If you are short, you may have trouble reaching the controls on the dryer. If you’re petite and still want to go vertical, don’t fret. Keep a foldable stepstool nearby for easy access.

4. Stack Your Hampers

An organized laundry room is a happy laundry room. Use baskets to sort clothes by colour, material type or family member. Sizable hampers won’t fit in a standard shelving unit, but a custom system can keep your hampers in order. Build a frame with multiple slots so each clothing bin has a home. Design your shelves to hold as many containers as your family needs.

5. Use Free-Standing Shelves

Tall bookshelves aren’t only for your collection of novels. Use them all over the house, including your laundry room. Place a shelving unit against any available open wall. You’ll have instant storage for all your laundering accessories. Keep items grouped to find what you need quickly. Store regularly used products like detergents and fabric softeners at arm’s reach. Keep small items like clothespins or dryer balls in plain view with clear bins.

6. Hang Collapsible Drying Racks

When it’s too cold to hang your clothes outside on a line, use your walls! Attach drying racks to the wall that open when needed and collapse flat when you’re finished.

Need to lay your sweaters flat to dry? Create a drying system with pull-out boards made to hold one or two pieces of clothing. Pull the shelf out and spread your shirt flat. Push it back inside of its housing to dry. Mildew thrives in a closed, moist area, so the facade should remain open for ventilation.

7. Create a Floor-to-Ceiling Closet

When you have a small room, using every available space is essential. You don’t need a full-sized coat closet for it to be functional. A tall, thin cabinet framed against a wall is a perfect home for cleaning essentials. Awkward brooms, vacuums and mops have an ideal home in a tall narrow space. Our experts at Handyman Connection can help you install the perfect closet for your cleaning essentials.
