Doing the laundry is among the least appealing household chores. This work consumes too much time and is endless. In fact, about 400 loads of laundry are done by an average family in a year – meaning each day has more than a load.
Washing machines and dryers are indeed blessing; however, doing too much laundry still consumes much time than cooking a meal. This work is certainly not fun at all! Nonetheless, there are accessories available which can help the work be easier and tolerable. We will tackle some of the well-known laundry room organizers these days.
The laundry room is a room in the house which totally needs organization. This is not only used each day, but it is also usually undersized. Every family has its own laundry needs, but there is still a way to organize the procedure despite these differences. A way for you to enter and exit quickly is to create different station like the folding area and storage area.
Hampers come in various types – folding hampers, rolling, collapsing, hanging, rollout, flip-top and many others.
Hampers are very popular because they are more flexible and are a great stylish alternative to the usual plastic laundry basket. Hampers can be out of sight since they are made of wicker, canvas, as well as sea grass. You may opt to place them in hallways or in areas where the family can have access to them.
Hampers may differ in materials and sizes; but, the triple laundry sorter is recommended to make the job much stress-free. This type contains three distinct compartments for whites, colors and mixed clothes. Thus, the time of separating the clothes can be reduced. The triple laundry sorter is available online or on any department stores and home enhancement centers. They also have a folding type so when there’s too heavy load, they can be rolled.
- Laundry Center
A versatile type of organizer is the laundry center; this is a good option if you have a spacious laundry room. They contain a triple laundry sorter, a shelf for storage and a hanging rod to hang dry clothes. The laundry center is suitable for families with loads of ironing. The regular laundry center is somewhat large and has wheels. This organizer is designed for spacious laundry rooms, so if your room does not have lots of space, this will just probably block the way.
- Hideaway Ironing Board
An ironing board may not really be a laundry organizer; however, this can definitely be helpful when you do lots of ironing at home. Rather than placing a folding ironing board in a crowded closet and having hard time looking for it when needed, it is a lot easier to place a hideaway ironing board on your laundry room’s wall. This way, it is always ready when needed.
Not too much feet of wall space is consumed by hideaway ironing boards. Even limited-spaced laundry rooms have much unused space. They basically fold down and when not in use, are stored in a cabinet.
- Laundry Caddy
A laundry caddy is a good solution for space issues. It is a handy storage fixture amid the washer and the dryer which rolls out easily when required. It also contains three shelves for fabric softeners, bleach and detergents.
