How to Organize a Laundry Room Closet with Storage Ideas

2 minute read, by Closet America, on Jul 27, 2023

Laundry rooms are typically one of the smallest rooms in your home, but they serve as one of the most important spaces. It is essential to keep these small spaces organized so they can be used with ease. It also tends to be an area that holds more than just items needed for the laundry. This means you need storage options that help keep it clean and organized. Keep reading to discover some of our tips for creating a space that is easy to use and easier to keep clean.


The most important parts of your laundry room are likely the appliances. No matter your setup, whether you have duo machines or a stacked unit, you will want to ensure they are placed in a position where the doors can be opened and closed easily.

Detergents & Laundry Supplies

All of your laundry supplies, like detergent, fabric softener, bleach, and dryer sheets, should be located in an easy-to-reach location directly by your washer and dryer. This will help make laundry day simple, and the best location for these is on a cabinet or shelf directly above your washer and dryer.

Space for Hanging Clothing

For clothing that needs to be air-dried, it is important to have a dedicated space for these items to hang. We recommend using hooks, a valet rod, or a closet rod to hang your special clothing. This space can be used as extra hanger storage as well.

Counter Space for Folding Clothing

If you have the space available, it can be beneficial to have a dedicated counter for folding clothing as soon as it comes out of the drier. This can help ensure you handle folding clothing right away and helps keep your laundry in one dedicated location.

Cleaning Supplies

If you have the space in your laundry room, or a specific laundry room closet, other cleaning supplies can be stored here. Keeping a dedicated space in your laundry room for things like vacuums, mops, brooms, and harsh cleaning chemicals helps keep these items in an easy-to-access location where they can be used as needed without worrying about your children or pets getting into these items.

Pet Food

If you have room for pet food, the laundry room is a perfect place for these items. It helps keep these out of reach of your furry friends, and utilizing a dedicated food bind can help ensure your pet food stays dry and doesn’t add an unpleasant smell to the rest of your room. This space can also be ideal for pet toys, bones, treats, leashes, and other accessories.

Organizing a laundry room is a rewarding feeling that makes the task of doing laundry easier. Being able to find everything quickly and having dedicated spots for each of these items helps keep this space clean too.
