Tips to Organize a Tiny Farmhouse Laundry Room

Do not let your little farmhouse laundry room stop you from making it fun and inviting. Keep in mind that a small space can be both functional and beautiful too.

To organize your tiny laundry room, start with adding storage units. Every single space inside the house deserves a good space to keep things. 

Since a small laundry room typically is lacking floor space, you should consider going vertical instead of simply swapping that tiny cabinet to the bulky one.

A wall-mounted cabinet will be perfect to keep your towels and laundry necessities without taking floor space. 

Hence, you can use it for additional machines or other things.

  • Incorporate an open shelf

If you are looking for a way to keep as much concealed space as possible in your farmhouse laundry room, try adding an open shelf. 

Instead of displaying ugly containers, consider grabbing yourself a stylish glass jar to keep your laundry detergent or a cute dispenser if you prefer the liquid one. 

Aside from your laundry necessities, an open shelf will allow you to showcase accessories that promote the farmhouse style. 

  • Create a location to hang your clothes

Having a place to hang your clothes straight away from the dryer must be comforting. Sometimes you just do not want them to wrinkle or it is just not the time to fold all of them.

Although it may not be significant, owning a good place to hang clothes in your laundry room can help keep your floor cleaner

  • Sort your dirty laundry
Sort your dirty laundry

Instead of piling your dirty laundry in one basket, it would be better to sort it. As a result, you can easily transport it to the washer directly.

There is no need to dump all your dirty laundry on the floor as you have sorted previously.

Moreover, it is also recommended to add a smaller basket in a place where things are more likely to pile up, for example, the counter beside your dryer or washer. 

Adding a basket should help reduce the ability of your family members to pile things in a particular spot.

All in all, thanks to its visual beauty and easy-to-recreate nature, creating a farmhouse laundry room can be a good choice for any homeowner who is looking for a way to make their daily routine more thrilling.
