This compact space has everything you need and makes the most of every inch. Above the washer and dryer, sturdy, deep shelving holds the soaps, cleaning supplies, and towels that are used often; each shelving unit has a handy row of pegs for hanging items. A cabinet in the corner provides more storage -- and a surface for folding. An oversize homemade ironing board tops the washer and dryer, giving plenty of room for pressing tablecloths and other large linens; a smaller board is good for shirtsleeves and collars. Laundry-storage two-door cabinet, in Picket Fence, $329, and Solutions single entryway shelves with pegs, in Picket Fence, $69 each, by Martha Stewart Living, homedecorators.com.
