10 Awesome Ideas for Tiny Laundry Spaces

10 Awesome Ideas for Tiny Laundry Spaces

Laundry rooms are supposed to be the place where everything gets clean, crisp and looking sharp… But does your laundry room itself live up to the task? If you can’t find the pre-wash and you are navigating through open piles of unwashed laundry, you have a problem. And if your laundry space isn’t very big to begin with, it’s a catastrophe zone! Use these awesome ideas for tiny laundry spaces to get the “organized” back into your “clean”!

This first idea we found on ‘Pinterest’, and it is AWESOME! Love the sliding door to hide the space… This makes it easy to keep all the cleaning out of sight, and turn an unused awkward closet into usable space!



Home with Baxter‘ created this laundry space inside a half bath while doing a remodel… I love that she took the time to make everything pretty! Beadboard and baskets make a big difference in a utilitarian space.



If your home is so small (or old) that it doesn’t even have laundry space, let ‘Fine Homebuilding’ show you how to create a laundry room from a closet.



Hold on to Your Hats‘ shows us how just a few simple things can make a big difference… Slanted racks above allow easy access to items you need, and organizing with wall brackets keeps ironing supplies and the like out of the way… Easy!



Find out how to make this foldable drying rack, from ‘Centsational Girl’… This is a real space saver, I hate having to air dry clothes over the shower rod! :)



From ‘I Heart Organizing‘, this laundry space was created in the garage… I love the hanger rack right above the machines.



My Sweet Savannah‘ turned this tiny laundry room into an organized space with a single change… a back of the door rack complete with chalkboard painted door for labeling.

From Midori Design on ‘Houzz‘, this is another example of using a closet space to create a laundry room.



Last, we have this ingenious idea from ‘Rakuten‘… This drawer unit fits in the space between the two machines… What a great product! Awesome ideas!

    These ideas are really neat, but my laundry room is so small, I can only fit a washer in it. I have to hang all my clothes outside.

  3. Kay Gyngell says:

    I want to put my laundry in a “cupboard” & have been looking at the great examples on Pinterest. But I can’t work out where the wadhing machine used water goes…there’s never any sign of a trough or water outlet, just a washing macine & dryer. Am I missing something? New to Pinterest & trying to work out where/how to post questions so please bear with me.Would welcome input.

    • Hi Kay, we have just looked into this ourselves. the water needs to be plumbed in by a plumber, so cupboard needs to be close to the water network inside your house already. You may also need council consent to move your laundry, you need to check with your local city council.

    • PlumbersHelper says:

      Generally the waste for the wash machine is in the same spot as where the water supply is, behind the wash machine. In newer homes it incorporated into a 12 x 12″ box that has a hot and a cold valve and hole/pipe for the drain. Older homes will have a pipe coming up through the floor.

    • They have washer/dryer combinations now you could look into — 2 machines in one.

  4. Mywasher and dryer is in the garage right now and I am in the process of enclosing them so the are part of the house. Because of where the water and electrical outlets are, they will face each other. I have not seen any laundry room designs with them facing each other. Does anyone else have this problem?
