It's Laundry Day!!

The laundry room is one of the busiest and most important areas of the home but it is often over looked.  It is easy to turn your disorganized laundry area into a clean and organized room in your home.





Take a look at the issues in your laundry room - do you need storage to hang clothes, keep dirty clothes, keep supplies?

Start by clearing it out , you might be surprised at the random things you will find stored in there.

1. In most laundry rooms storage is a concern and one of the first steps that will help organize the laundry space is shelving above the washer and drier.  So go to IKEA or another store with great storage solution ideas and get some easy to hang shelves.  these shelves are perfect for laundry soaps, stain removers and more.  You really cannot have too much shelving especially if your laundry area acts as a storage area for other items too like bulk foods (think juice boxes, pop, toilet paper etc...) If you have a larger laundry room, try mixing both open and closed storage - open storage is perfect for items you need access to (soaps, sprays) and you can even keep them in cute baskets to it's pretty to look at and closed storage is great for bulk items.

2. If you are tired of losing socks behind the machines, think about installing a wall to wall counter top over the machines (works with front loaders).  Not only will you lose less but now you have a flat counter for folding or keeping laundry cleaning supplies at your finger tips and laundry baskets. 

 

3. A lot of laundry spaces tend to be dark and dingy so let the light in with some good light fixtures with bright bulbs and paint the walls in a fresh colour.

4. Look at installing a Swing Arm Hanger Holder (www.organize.com) to hang shirts after they have been pressed

5.  Laundry sorters are perfect to keep brights, whites and mid tones separate.  Get the kids involved in sorting the laundry too.  You can find great sorters at Wal-mart and other department stores.  You can even use large wicker baskets instead of an actual sorter
 







Having an organized laundry centre in your home will make you life easier and if you are selling (sooner or later) this is a great feature for a family and it is not an expensive upgrade
