Laundry rooms are typically tiny -- install shelves and a curtain above the washing machine to keep laundry supplies tidy and hidden from sight.
Stack towels for drying hand-washables on one shelf. Keep special stain remedies together in a galvanized metal box, and store mothballs and cedar chips in canning jars.
Even the smallest laundry room is easy to work in if it's organized. Small nooks and crannies can become useful spaces. Here, a four-inch-wide shelf holds bars of castile soap, laundry soap for delicates, a small sewing kit, sponge, and spray bottle of water for ironing. Decant powder detergents and other supplies into narrow containers to fit on the shelf.
Fit central cabinets with roll-out wire trays, the kind used in kitchens, then fasten a pair of hooks to the inside of the doors to hold bulky tools like a hair dryer or curling iron. If floor space is scarce, add a second sliding track in an adjacent cabinet to hold the trash can.
