Let’s talk about the laundry room. I would be happy just to have a laundry room (or even just a washer and dryer in the kitchen), but I would be especially happy to have one of these dreamy laundry rooms. A simple rearrangement of task areas takes advantage of vertical space to make cleanup easier for both two and four-legged family members.
Use these plans from ‘Thrifty and Chic‘ to create this clever DIY laundry storage! Step by step photos and complete tutorial. Great idea for a small laundry room!
‘Hold on to Your Hats‘ shows us how just a few simple things can make a big difference… Slanted racks above allow easy access to items you need, and organizing with wall brackets keeps ironing supplies and the like out of the way. Easy diy laundry room organization!

‘Home with Baxter‘ created this laundry space inside a half bath with vertical. I love that she took the time to make everything pretty! Beadboard and baskets make a big difference in a utilitarian space.

Built-in cabinets, a butcher block countertop and a beautiful wood floor make this living room from My Domaine a special space.
Even a laundry room that’s fully functional can be improved to accommodate a family’s evolving needs. In the case of Barbara and Edward Marshall of Akron, Ohio, their mixed-breed dogs, Roxy and Bella, dictated changes by claiming the 8×8 foot laundry room as their master suite. The pair, who like to get muddy on the Marshalls’ large property, needed frequent bathing, which involved Barb or Ed lifting the dogs into the room’s small utility sink. The dogs also liked to sleep in the middle of the room which has separate entries to the kitchen, garage, and deck so everyone had to step over them.
Installing a stacked washer and dryer freed space for a shower with a commercial hand sprayer to regulate water flow. The shower is also used for cleaning muddy boots and gardening tools, and for hanging the grandkids’ swimsuits. The dogs’ bed is now tucked into the middle cabinet under the drawer.
Hand shower Built for Dog
Placing the handshower on one of the side walls keeps it within arm’s reach. The penny-round tile floor ensures no slipping.
Easy Shower-Stall Storage
A shower niche stores soaps; hooks keep brushes and towels handy for when grandkids visit and get muddy in the yard.
A Spot For Dog Leashes
A rack by the back door holds dog-walking necessities.
Too Many Entrances: Floor Plan Before
Three entries to the laundry room limited appliance placement.
Stacked Appliances For Freed-Up Room: Floor Plan After
A stacked washer and dryer where the utility sink stood frees up space on the wall for the shower and built-in dog bed.
- Installed a pocket door, eliminating a door swing in order to free up floor space.
- Incorporated a dog bed into the recess below the new countertop.
- Created a shower with a handheld sprayer mounted on the near wall.
- Added an upper cabinet, leaving clearance for a folding counter.
- Eliminated the sink to install a space-saving stacked washer and dryer.
