Washing clothes takes up time, but also space. And in a city like London, space isn’t something everyone has a whole load of. With that in mind, here are some nifty laundry organisation and storage tips to free up some valuable room.
DIY floating shelves are an easy and inexpensive way to create additional space for detergents and towels. Spruce up a boring laundry room by opting for something simple and stylish, like these wooden shelves.
Pull out storage tower
You can either add pull out drawers into your laundry design, or purchase freestanding slim storage carts. These are a great way to store and easily access your laundry products as needed.
Build yourself a counter top
If you’re up for a DIY challenge, you can create your own counter space just above the height of your front loader washing machine.
Laundry organisation and storage shelves
Built in shelves that neatly fit your laundry hampers or baskets make laundry organisation and storage so much easier.
If you don’t have built ins, you can do a DIY version. If you want to get really space-savvy, create one on wheels so it can be rolled from your bathroom to your laundry when needed.
Odd socks and small change
Where do you put all of the odd socks and random receipts without making a mess? Hanging ‘junk drawers’ are a great way to keep all the bits and pieces in one spot.
You can use one online, or use a large photo frame, pegs, string and wire to make your own. Wall hooks are also great for hanging items and little jars or containers for collecting loose change and bobby pins.

You can purchase drying racks that are mountable, foldable, extendable and more. You can also re-purpose almost anything to become a drying rack.
How about hanging a ladder from the ceiling, or suspending an old bed frame with wire springs to hang coat hangers from?

Dispensers and containers
Make storing laundry products easier by using clear containers, and you’ll know exactly when you need to restock. Using dispenser taps is a great way to store liquid products too.
Hang your ironing board
You can buy purpose-made wall mountable racks to hang your ironing board and iron. This will save you space and stop the ironing board from crashing down on you. Towel hooks are a really effective option too.
