The laundry room is often an afterthought when it comes to design and used as a room that prioritizes function over form, but it doesn’t have to be! Even if it’s a small room, there are a lot of things you can do to help make your laundry room just as beautiful as the other rooms in your home! Check out the tips below and get ready to start loving the space so much, you'll find yourself making excuses to do extra loads!

1.) Add a slim rolling cart with pullout drawers to house your soap, fabric softener, cleaners, and more. This one is great and comes in white, black, or gray. Keep all your accoutrement organized and easy to access!

2.) Hideaway hanging racks are great for small spaces since they only pop out when needed. Here's a great option for drying racks, and this hanger is bendable to allow more functional use of space. Even if you have a lot of delicate items that need to air dry, adding some dedicated drying space will help you maintain an organized and functional space.

3.) Cleaning out the lint trap is maybe one of the worst parts about doing laundry - all that dust flying everywhere? No thank you! Add a magnetic lint bin to the side of your dryer to keep the dust all in one spot. This bin also comes with a dryer sheet holder and lint brush to clean inside the dryer.

4.) If you, like many people keep vacuums, brooms, dusters, etc in your laundry room, consider utilizing a wall-hung organizer to keep things off the floor. No more knocking over the broom when you're trying to get to the light switch, or stubbing your toe on the vacuum cleaner. An organizer like this is a great option for any space!

5.) Tired of trying to manage multiple bins and jugs to keep detergent and fabric softener separate? A dispenser jar might be just what you need! I love this one that allows for three different liquids, or this option for dry materials.

Don't let the laundry room be a space you're embarrassed to show people. A few simple tweaks and you'll have it turned into a room you want to show off in no time!
