Laundry Room – Hang it where? Iron what?

The laundry room is one space that gets a used all the time (in my house especially with a toilet training 3 year old).

Today I’m thinking about some of the ways to make a laundry room functional. How do you do your laundry? Does everything go in the dryer? Or do you hang some things? Do you iron a lot? How are your clothes sorted? Do you store anything in your laundry room (paper products, linens for example?).

I am working with a client right now on her laundry room area. We’ve moved the washer & dryer around which allowed a dedicated area for drying racks and a fold up ironing board. She line dries a lot of her clothes and also wanted a dedicated area for her ironing board.

Here are a few ideas of how you can line dry your clothes in your laundry room:

Or, if you’d rather use hangers:

A waterfall hanger is a space saver for shallow closets but works for hanging clothes in a laundry area too.

Check out this vintage ladder re-purposed and hung in a laundry room.

I guess there is always line drying … love the smell of fresh sheets dried on the line!

What about your ironing board? Where do you store it?

This laundry room has one of the ironing boards that are commonly available where you hang it on the wall when it is not in use.

There are also options available to wall mount your ironing board and store your iron beside it.

Hopefully that gives you some ideas on different ways of hanging your wash and storing your iron!

  1. arrrg, i wish I had a laundry room, all these ideas are so great. I loved the old window frame being used for a drying rack. So cool.

  2. I needed this post because I need to build something for better hanging. So thanks!!

  3. What I need is a new light outside my laundry closet! Sigh. Love these, maybe in my next house!
