Laundry Room Space Saving Solutions: Utilize the Room in Your Tight Laundry Space

My very small laundry room area has turned into a disorganized mess I dread, and our family laundry volume shows no sign of letting up. Can you share any ideas on how I can create the extra space I need to get laundry day back under control?

The Money Pit Answer

A laundry room often seems like an afterthought in home design, leading to challenges when it's actually time to use this limited but vital space.
One way you can free up some of that valuable square footage in your small laundry room is to literally go up; many manufacturers now provide stacking framework for their full-size laundry machines, allowing you to enjoy the convenience of those stacked mini-systems without sacrificing the load capacity you and your family need.

For more laundry room space, look into cool, space creating additions like laundry storage towers that fit neatly between your machines, and pedestals that build in drawer storage underneath washers and dryers. That zone in your laundry room between your upper cabinets and any work surface is another opportune laundry room space spot; put it to work with a track-mounted bin system to hold laundry supplies and small-volume sorting.
