We all have to do laundry, and not having as much space to work with can make the whole process more difficult. Having an organized, clean, and systemized room to do your laundry is crucial to making the process less painful. If you’re wondering how to organize and create a system with your tiny laundry space, these cheap laundry room organization hacks can help you out.

Repurpose and Store

It’s amazing what you can do with an old bookcase and a few storage containers. By repurposing your old shelving units, you’ll be able to store more objects while not having to pay for more expensive solutions. You can further organize your laundry essentials with a series of storage containers. Not only can you store your laundry items, but you can categorize the containers to leave room for other necessities.

Take Advantage of Your Wall Space

While this may seem like a simple thing, you also have to keep in mind that you might have to use storage solutions where you initially wanted decoration. Unfortunately, the laundry room is more about function than style and you’re going to need to make that sacrifice if you find that you need more space. Shelving units and hanging storage help greatly with this hack.

Utilize Behind the Door Storage

After moving hangable items to the walls, you can take your storage endeavors one step further by introducing hangable caddies and shelves behind the door as well. This space is often overlooked, but when you’re working with a small space, every inch counts. Using the proper methods, such as a door rack or a shelving unit behind the door hinge, you can store a surprising amount of cleaning supplies in that small area.

Create Pull-Out Stations

Instead of moving the laundry duties to other areas of the house, create smaller stations that can be folded away within the room. Installing a folding ironing table for instance will grant you the ability to iron your clothes, as well as keep your room open enough for other activities. Folding tables and built-in drying racks can also be tools in your arsenal.

Create a Separating System

With all of the space you’ve created using the other hacks, you can dedicate some of that extra room to creating a system for the laundry itself. Investing in a couple extra laundry baskets and some labels, you can designate each container to a different load of laundry—whites, colors, and towels. This hack will save you a lot of time during the laundry process because you’ll no longer have to sort the loads before you start.
