Like most chores, doing the laundry can be a tedious, time-consuming task; after all, it often takes a full day, or even an entire weekend, to complete all the sorting, washing, drying and folding. Despite being about as much fun as doing the dishes (which means no fun at all), there are ways you can make the process easier. Since a laundry room is often notoriously small, getting your hamper, washer, dryer and drying rack all in can be daunting, but some well-placed built-ins and clever positioning makes all the difference. Here's how to make the most of your space, even if the space itself seems unreasonable. More

Make the most of your laundry room walls.

The floor space in most laundry rooms is in short supply, so save some by using your walls. Wall-mounted drying racks, clothing rods and ironing boards are easy to find, inexpensive and effective. They keep all the clean clothes out of the way so you can focus on the task at hand.

Take folding and drying out of the laundry room.

To avoid traffic overload in such a small space, purchase rolling hampers and portable drying racks. Hampers with wheels and traditional baskets allow you to conveniently transition clothes, and they’re easy to move again when it’s time to fold. You can even set up portable drying racks and ironing boards in the living room and watch your favorite shows while ironing and hanging. Not too bad, right?

Use baskets and bins for laundry accessories.

Dryer sheets, clothespins, hangers and spot cleaners are just a few of the many small things we often accumulate in the laundry room. Make them easier to find by grouping them together in a basket, bin or box. Place them next to larger items, such as the iron, detergent and fabric softener so the entire process is seamless.

Splurge on a built-in storage system.

Oftentimes, baskets, bins and wall units just aren’t enough; sometimes you have to invest in something a little more substantial. Turn your room into a storage haven by adding shelves, cabinets, drawers and clotheslines. By creating a custom unit, you can individualize the room to fit all of your needs; you can even add a pullout ironing board, drying rack or clothes hamper.

Include a utility sink for increased function.

Help your space do double duty by adding a utility sink and turning the area into a mudroom and laundry room combo. Although it might seem like a big purchase, a stainless steel sink would come in handy when you’re trying to get out those extra-hard stains or need to hand wash any delicates.
