Every family member gets a basket with their clean folded laundry that can be taken to their room and put away. -Could also use for each member's dirty laundry & put clean, folded laundry back in when finished.
I don't have this exact set up but its a really cool way to add space in the laundry room. Plywood as a laundry room counter top, just rub on some danish oil. (add a cheap rubber floor mat between the wood and metal to dampen the sound)
