A space-saving stacked washer and dryer in this closet-turned-laundry area leaves plenty of room to install shelves for storage. If your laundry closet lacks a door, like this one, conceal it with a cute, colorful shower curtain suspended from a shower rod. The curtain solution hides the otherwise visible laundry room, a definite plus when guests visit....
Clean up your act in the laundry by installing a countertop above a front-loading washing machine and dryer. The work surface is ideal for folding and sorting clothes and holding cleaning supplies. Got top-loading machines? You can still boost your storage capacity by hanging a shelf above the units. Add a rod for drying delicate garments.
Make wash day less of a chore with a well-stocked, space-saving cabinet. Start with any plain cabinet, from a salvaged buffet top to a new kitchen cupboard, and mount it securely to the wall by anchoring it to wall studs. Then expand its function by replacing door panels with pegboard, securing an iron holder and hanger holder to the side, and adding a wall shelf if needed.
