3 Space-Saving Hacks for Your Laundry Room

If you're buying a home in Vero Beach - or if you're building one from the ground up - you need to know these three space-saving hacks that can make your laundry room more spacious.

3 Space-Saving Hacks for Your Laundry Room

First things first: If you find a home that has minimal laundry room space, you may be able to improve it after you buy. Talk to your real estate agent if the laundry room is holding you back - you might be surprised at your options!

From there, here's what you can do to save space in a laundry room:

  1. Stack your washer and dryer.
  2. Use creative shelving.
  3. Use the top half of the room for drying space.

Here's a closer look at each.

#1. Stack Your Washer and Dryer.

Stackable washer and dryer units may not have as much interior space as traditional washers and dryers do, but they make up for that when they open up a ton of floor space in your laundry room. Vertical units typically cost under $1,000 for a set.

If that's not an option, consider putting a pedestal beneath your washer and dryer, and then installing drawers beneath them. The washer and dryer will be at a more ergonomic level for you, plus you'll have more storage space for detergent and other laundry accessories.

#2. Use Creative Shelving.

Adding shelving is a great idea in a laundry room - but you can think vertically. Overhead shelving typically doesn't reach all the way to the ceiling, but in your home, it can. Why not, right? You can even do things like add pull-out hampers and roll-out trays to get even more from your shelf space.

#3. Use the Top Half of the Room for Drying Space.

Nobody uses the top half of a laundry room... but you can. Repurpose an old ladder and hang it from the ceiling; it's like a conventional drying rack, but better - and it'll get more warm air circulation with its elevation. You can also use a pull-down rod or an adjustable shower rod - and if you're feeling experimental, try installing a retractable clothesline.
