Although it’s usually hidden and not the space that ever comes to mind when we think of tidying up for visitors, the laundry room does have an impact on our life at home. While we so often bemoan the never, ever ending chore that is laundry and try so many laundry hacks to finally get on top of it, we may be overlooking one of the things that influences our laundering life more than anything: the laundry room itself.
As with any space we depend on for getting stuff done, the state of the laundry room has a direct impact not only on how efficiently our laundry gets done, but on our own state of mind while doing it. A laundry room that’s organized runs smoothly and, moreover, it’s pleasant to be and work in, both things that may entice us to quit avoiding the chore.
Here are some of the best ways to turn this small, often neglected room into its very best self:
1. Hang an ironing board from robe hooks.
An ironing board is bulky, but when you need one, you need one. In the meantime, you need to store it. Robe hooks are a simple, affordable way to keep your ironing board out of the way, yet accessible. Hang two at a distance that allows you to securely hang your ironing board foot from them.
