Saving space in your house or apartment is often unavoidable, especially for hard-working rooms like the laundry. For most of us, thinking about washing clothes, drying, and ironing comes well after we have designed the laundry space. So what do you do when reality strikes? If you are looking for inspiration on small laundry design ideas, discover our favourites in the Houzz image gallery. You can even use our filters to search by cabinet style, tile colour, or only within Australia if you want to narrow it down.
Here’s a few smart ideas to consider when you’re short on space:
Keep your apartment nice and tidy, by turning your closet into a very small laundry area. When it comes to small laundry ideas to DIY, this has to be one of the most convenient ones. If you are creative enough, you can store many of your laundry equipment in here, and avoid having them around your living area. Place the dryer on top of the washer, build a vertical sliding organiser, and add a couple of shelves. That can be all it takes!
Ironing Board Cabinet
Nothing will save up space like an ironing board cabinet. This is by far one of the best small laundry ideas, especially when you’re on a budget! When you need the ironing board, just open the cabinet doors and pull it down. After you have finished, simply fold it up and shut the doors. If the cabinet is built well - possibly by one of the amazing pros from the Houzz directory - it can also be used as storage for other ironing essentials.
Bath and Small Laundry Ideas
Combining a laundry area with your bathroom or powder room can be very efficient. You don’t need an extra room, and the plumbing lines are already there, so you’ll save both space and money!
Realising your laundry dreams doesn’t have to be difficult, even when space is limited. Browse the Houzz photo gallery, save your favourites, and take note of the interior designers and bathroom renovators who have done the work. They may be the perfect match for your laundry renovation!
