Laundry Basket Shelves

Author Notes: This really wasn’t my idea.  I have some smart sisters.  They looked at the piles of laundry in my tiny laundry room, and said, Ana, what if . . . All your laundry baskets could be like drawers in a dresser . . . And we didn’t have to see your dirty – and clean – laundry every time we visit. In my defense, most of the piles of laundry in my home are clean.  They just rarely make it to the dresser. But this is one dresser that I can work with. I can deal with stacks of laundry with this system!  Do you have a laundry problem? That’s your sticker.  For each of these laundry basket dressers, you will need three of these baskets.  Way up here in Alaska, each basket was $3.50.  Should be less for you. PS – If you are interested in a slightly different size/configuration, check out these plans as well!

If you don’t yet have pedestals under your washer and dryer, now is the time to get them. And, you don’t have to pay a small fortune for them, either. You can actually build them yourself. Pedestals are great for storing all sorts of things in the laundry room. You can either build them with drawers or make it a bite easier on yourself and just leave them open. You can keep baskets of laundry or baskets of cleaning and laundry supplies in the cubbies. These are so easy to make and utilize space that you normally wouldn’t think of which is key in keeping things organized.

This slide out tower is actually made for the kitchen but we think it would be a wonderful addition to the laundry room. If you have a bit of space between the washer and dryer, you can just slide this right in there. It’s wide enough to hold most cleaning supplies and you can even keep your laundry detergent, stain fighters and dryer sheets on it, too. Instead of piling those things sky high on a shelf, stick them away in that little bit of wasted space between your laundry room appliances. It has casters so it will slide in and out easily and just think of the organizing that you can do with it.

Metal Angle If you are intimidated by metal angle, you can always use 2x2s glued and screwed here. Cut the metal angle with a hack saw and predrill holes (three per slide). Mark locations with a square and screw metal angle to the sides. TIP: Screw at a very slight downward angle to keep the baskets to the back of the box instead of sliding forward. If you choose to stack, make sure you secure the top laundry basket dress to a stud in the wall.

Sorting laundry can take up so much time. This 3 bag sorter eliminates that frustration and helps you to keep your laundry room organized and clean. By giving your family a place to sort all of their own clothes, you can save loads of time – pun intended. It glides around on wheels and it’s not at all heavy. If needed, you could print up labels to place on the individual hampers to show everyone what colors you want in each of them. Then when it comes time to actually wash clothes, you just empty out the hampers and everything is already sorted. Everyone should have one of these!

You can pick up a great behind the door organizing rack for around $30 at most home improvement stores. What you can do with that rack is completely organize and clean up your laundry room. In fact, when you paint the back of the door with chalkboard paint first, you can really get things organized. The paint is really inexpensive and it will take you about an hour to lay on a coat or two. Then just install the metal rack that will give you loads of storage space and you’ll be able to clean off shelves and get things off the floor.

The space above the washer and dryer is often not utilized to its full potential. If you have a little space, you can add these great DIY floating shelves that will allow you to store laundry essentials and just about anything else that you need to organize. They’re easy to build, although you do need to make sure that you get them level and even. Think about adding baskets with cleaning supplies or you could use the shelf for linens if your linen closet isn’t big enough. The possibilities are endless.

Hanging clothes out on the line is a great way to cut down on your energy bills but sometimes the weather just doesn’t agree. For those times, you can build your own retractable clothes line. This is great for helping to organize the laundry room because it stores away out of sight so there are no bulky towers holding up your line. You can store it away in a cabinet and then just take it out and hang it when you need it. If you need a place to hang your delicates while they dry, this is great and it’s really cheap to build, too.
