Do you have a problem with laundry room shelving? Look no further because we’ve got some new ideas to help you spruce up your room. The most essential thing to consider when placing shelving in your laundry room is that it is simple to reach but not too easy to keep little children out of harm’s way.
After all, laundry room shelf storage can accommodate everything from washing powders to fabric conditioners and much more. So keep these possibly hazardous and chemically abrasive goods out of reach of little children. We’ve even gone out to some industry professionals who have a slew of ideas for transforming your utility or laundry room into a place where you’ll be delighted to do your tasks.
1. BUILD SHELVING INTO ALCOVES
Don’t worry if you don’t have a huge laundry room. Because even tiny laundry rooms can accommodate a lot of laundry room shelves… If you plan your arrangement carefully. The alcove has been utilised to its utmost capacity in this inky blue modern classic area, with a rustic wooden shelf to match the work surface and contain domestic trinkets such as a vase full of flower cuttings and that lovely framed blackboard that adds plenty of personality. Dishtowels can also be stored and dried using wooden crates and ceiling-hung racks.
2. ADD TASK LIGHTING TO FIND ITEMS EASILY
When it comes to laundry day, whether you’re a working parent or a stay-at-home parent, there’s no rest for the wicked. Whether it’s work and school uniforms, sports equipment, or clothing for social engagements, staying on top of that never-ending pile might feel like a thankless effort.
So, with a pair of lights above your laundry room shelf, you can make things easy from dawn to night. You can see exactly where your supplies are by adding more illumination, and you won’t be hunting in frustration for fabric cleaner or spot remover.
3. HANG SHIRTS TO DRY WITH A SCANDI OPEN STORAGE SYSTEM
Swedish design has long been known for being clean and cool, so incorporating an Ikea storage unit into a space dedicated to washing your clothing makes sense.
This JONAXEL open storage unit is not only cheap for everyone, but its modular design allows you to hang blouses and shirts in style while keeping other surfaces dry.
4. PLACE SHELVING CLOSE TO YOUR MACHINES
When considering how to build a laundry room, the arrangement, especially laundry room shelves, is critical. After all, you don’t want your best cleaning detergents to be located hundreds of miles away from your washing machine.
‘Install built-ins over your washing and dryer to store vital supplies like detergent and dryer sheets,’ suggests Jill Larue-Rieser, chief marketing officer of California Closets.
If your machines are stacked, install shelves to the left or right of the unit. A mix of closed and open shelves allows you to conceal cleaning bottles and boxes of laundry soap while exhibiting photographs, memorabilia, and other design elements to liven up the space.
