5 Quick & Easy Laundry Room Storage Tips


No one wants to spend the whole day in the laundry room doing laundry! The IKEA Home Tour Squad has 5 quick and easy storage tips that will help you control the laundry room chaos, stay organized, and save precious minutes on each load that you do. Start with something small – such as keeping jars nearby, like IKEA’s KORKEN clear glass jars with lids. These jars will come in handy when you need to store all the loose change you find in the laundry, they’re also great for storing clothespins, and spare buttons. Next, the Squad recommends adding sturdy shelving in your laundry room to better organize detergents and other laundry supplies. Our affordable ALGOT storage makes for a great shelving solution as you can add on additional shelves when needed to, better suit your storage needs and your area. On one of those shelves we recommend placing a SOCKERBIT box, these smaller-sized storage boxes are great for dryer lint disposal. If you use your laundry room to iron in – or just store your ironing board there, the Squad recommends our mounting a pair of BJÄRNUM folding hooks on the wall to hang your ironing board on. Lastly – we highly recommend portable hampers that can be easily carried by carried from a bedroom or bathroom to the laundry room. Our JÄLL laundry bag and foldable stand is sturdy enough to hold up to 17 pounds of laundry, but lightweight enough to place on our BJÄRNUM folding hooks when you’re doing laundry.
