How to Conquer your Messy Laundry Room

If you find yourself unable to even clear a path in your laundry room, it may be time to conquer the mess. Your messy laundry room can be due to the overabundance of clothes, clutter, and inadequate storage. We at A1 Access Storage in South Salt Lake can help you conquer the clutter with one of our storage units and with the tips listed below.

Go Through your Wardrobe

The main cause of your laundry room clutter is due to your clothing. If you take the time to look at how much clothing you actually have that is taking up valuable storage space and ultimately flowing over to your laundry room. By sorting through your clothing by season you can free up your closet space and get control of your wardrobe. A storage unit at A1 Access Storage in South Salt Lake can give you the storage space you need when you are storing your out of season clothing. For the clothing items you don’t wear or see yourself wearing any time soon, you can always donate them or give them to friends and family.

Hide the Clutter

Doing laundry often requires you to have a lot of laundry essentials such as detergent, dryer sheets, and stain sticks. To give you laundry room the organization and cleanliness it needs you can hide the clutter with bins and baskets. Purchase bins or baskets that go along with your décor and hold all of your accessories. Place your bins up on shelving or within available cupboards to keep them up and out of the way.

Get Creative with your Storage

Laundry rooms are known to be the smallest rooms in the house leaving you with little to no storage space. Because of the lack of space you need to rethink your storage options. Take advantage of the spaces you don’t usually use. Hanging storage behind the door can store any and all laundry essentials you may need. Think vertically and install shelving or hanging racks for your larger laundry items.

Consider Space Saving Appliances

If you are faced with a smaller laundry room you might want to consider purchasing space saving appliances. Stackable washer and dryers can give you twice as much space in your laundry room. This will open up the space you need for storage or for an area to sort and fold your laundry.
