The laundry room is often an overlooked and overworked room in the home. It needs to be functional of course, but what about beautiful? Whether you have a small laundry closet or tiny laundry room, your laundry area can be both functional and beautiful! Below are a collection of 25 Small Laundry Room Ideas by bloggers. Let’s face it, laundry is not a task that most of us look forward to but having a pretty space to work in certainly lightens the load! (See what I did there? Laundry..load?)


I don't own a laundry basket anymore. I used to. But I had a tendency to let the clean, folded laundry live in the basket forever too long without putting it away. With this new laundry set up, I decided to get rid of the laundry baskets and, again, "force" myself to keep everything put away. Because this laundry closet is so close to our bedrooms, it's easy to remove the clothes from the dryer, hang whatever's necessary on the cart, and take the remaining clothes to my bedroom. I fold the clothes right on top of my bed and put them away right then and there. That way there's never a laundry mess. For some reason, when I used to haul the clean clothes up from the basement in laundry baskets, they were much more likely to stay put in those dang baskets. Forever Indefinitely. We'd start pulling the clean clothes we needed out of those baskets, and before too long the neatly folded clean clothes were a big wrinkled mess. This new set up works so much better for me. Laundry is easier and faster to do, and everything gets put away and closed up when I finished. Done, no mess.


1 of 12 A Streamlined Laundry Room Laundry rooms are notorious for being cramped. If you need new inspiration for making over your laundry room, these laundry room ideas will help you save precious space and time. In Kevin Sharkey's laundry room, he wanted everything necessary to clean and care for his clothing in one place. He put together kits for minor sewing repairs, stain removal, shoe care, and clothing storage, and set them within easy reach on the lowest shelf. A catchall holds loose change, popped buttons, or whatever else is in his pockets. He decants powder detergent; a glass container makes it easier to see when you're running low than a cardboard box does. Shop the Martha Stewart Living™ storage solutions


In what universe are most of these small? I mean, how big do you think the average laundry room is? I have only seen ONE laundry room bigger than the largest of these in my life. Don’t me wrong, I love them and they are beautiful, but my “laundry room” is literally the hallway to the back door. And my parents is a closet in their dinning room. My mother in law’s is the hall from her house into the garage.


First, some background. King-Man and I have always lived in old houses. Our current 2 story home was built in the 1920s. We love the charm and character of old houses with high ceilings, wood floors, and beautiful woodwork inside and big trees outside. We don't like the lack of closet space, small kitchens, and laundry areas that are in the basement. In our last 3 homes, the washer and dryer were as far as they could possibly be from the bedrooms where the dirty laundry originates. That has meant hauling the dirty laundry down 2 flights of stairs (except for 1 house that had a laundry chute), and then hauling the clean laundry back up those stairs.

There is scientific evidence to prove that the majority of people report feeling calm and serene when surrounded by the color blue. While laundry rooms are welcome to be any color of your choosing, a blue laundry room is most likely to leave you feeling at peace. Considering how stressful I find doing our family’s laundry, I think I can use all of the help I can get! Here are some beautiful blogger laundry rooms in various shades of blue.


It might seem strange to talk about laundry in this blog. After all this is supposed to be about The Yummy Life. What in the world could be yummy about laundry? Personally, I've always hated doing laundry. But, it's a necessary chore that everyone has to deal with. A year ago my laundry life changed in a way that made my life considerably yummier.


Monica's favorite laundry gear Iron-A-Way Ironing Board System After several years of use I still LOVE this! Having the power, a light, and shelving built into the system is so convenient. Amazon's price is the best I've found. View on Amazon.com Wicker Laundry Hamper I keep this attractive hamper in our bedroom so that we can sort dirty laundry as we go. View on Amazon.com Eureka Cordless Stick Vacuum I have this hanging (and charging) in my laundry closet. It's so handy for quickly cleaning lint, dust, and pet hair on my wood floors. It also has a setting for light vacuuming of carpet. View on Amazon.com


We figured out a way to add a small closet in our hallway that was pretty much dead space any way. By taking a couple of feet out of two adjacent bedrooms, we had a laundry closet installed that didn't take a big enough bite out of either room to be missed at all. The result has been one of the yummiest home improvements we've ever made. It's not as pretty or exciting as, say, redecorating a living room; but it's yummy just the same. Truth is, doing laundry is something we have to do almost every day. Making that unpleasant chore easier and more efficient leaves more time for the yummier things in life.


For apartment dwellers and those with limited space, a hideaway laundry room is the best option. Compact washer/dryer units make it easy to conceal the laundry room. With a sliding door, even a small hallway closet can be converted without impeding traffic. Wall shelves and between-machine storage bins make for an organized, self-contained utility space.

I'd been hearing about the trend of having laundry rooms on the same floor with the bedrooms. Honestly, that's so obvious that I don't know why houses were ever designed any other way. As envious as I was of people who had homes with convenient laundry areas, we just didn't think we had the space to add one to our 2nd floor. We didn't want to sacrafice a bedroom. But, with the increasing popularity and availability of front-loading, stackable washers and dryers in recent years, it occurred to me that maybe we could find a place for a small laundry closet on our second floor. These stackable appliances have a small enough footprint that they really don't require a great deal of floor space.


Awhile back, I shared a link on Facebook to a past post where I had featured some real-life laundry rooms by fellow bloggers with the sentiment that these were based in reality and not in Pinterest. The resounding response was hahaha! I wish! and most responded that your real-life laundry rooms were small areas, tiny closets, or corners of basements. So today, I've rounded up almost FORTY ideas and inspiration for truly tiny and awkward areas, those small laundry spaces.  (featured image via Hoot Designs on Shanty2Chic)


8 of 12 Tight-Space Laundry In the compact laundry workstation and storage area of a small bathroom, the stacked European-style washer-dryer set economizes space. A shelf between units pulls out for folding items fresh from the dryer, then slides out of sight. A matchstick shade lowers all the way to the floor, gracefully hiding the utility area when guests are expected. Video: How to Maximize Space in Your Laundry Room


RMS user Sassy0239 wanted to transform her contractor-grade laundry room into a stylish and feminine utility space representative of her style. She repainted the walls, replaced the traditional metal shelves and added chic, budget-friendly baskets and storage accessories to make up for the lack of cabinetry. Now, she has a pretty laundry room she actually enjoys doing laundry in (kind of).


In a hallway - In a petite home or apartment, a laundry can be easily positioned within a row of cupboards in a hallway. The trick is to make sure there’s easy access to a clothes line in the backyard or a folding clothes airer on the balcony. After all, who can put up with endless drips on the floorboards!
