A smaller laundry room requires out-of-the-box thinking and inventive storage solutions. Using beautiful and functional organizing options, let’s explore several creative ways to get your laundry room in shape for the new year!
Fill the awkward space above laundry cabinets with useful storage baskets.
Use woven bins and baskets to hide clutter, keep laundry organized, and looking beautiful in your space! My laundry cabinets do not go all the way up to the ceiling, leaving an underutilized and unattractive empty space. If your laundry cabinets do not reach the ceiling, consider using this empty space for additional basket storage. Before shopping for baskets, first measure the length, height, and depth of the empty space and use these measurements when shopping online to inform your decision on which baskets will work best for your space. Baskets can be used to organize each family member’s washed clothing, or simply to store extra supplies.
I purchased my baskets at World Market and have affiliate linked several other options of my favorite rectangular baskets below. To shop for affiliate-linked laundry room accessories, simply click on the thumbnail picture which interest you to immediately be taken to the item for purchase.

Keep bulky laundry detergents pretty and easily accessible by storing in glass containers.
Powdered laundry detergents are often affected by moisture and humidity when housed in their originals containers. Transfer the products to sealed glass jars to keep products easily within reach and beautifully contained.
Use a metal scoop to dispense the product when needed. You can also use lidded containers to store your scent boosters, detergent pods, and even to quickly toss away dryer lint.
When looking for containers to store laundry supplies, do not be afraid to think outside of the box! This vintage-inspired pencil case is a cute place to store wool dryer balls, or dryer sheets.

Beverage dispensers are able to dispense more than just your favorite cold drinks! Use a beverage dispenser to store your liquid laundry detergent.

Using a cute measuring cup is a fun way to dispense the detergent and measure out what is needed!
