The dreaded chore of laundry can feel like a slog. Folding takes forever, drying clothes requires so much space — and everything's worse if your laundry room is ill-equipped. Luckily, upgrading your space doesn't have to mean a major renovation. Whether you want to hide your extra supplies, tuck away your drying rack, keep track of loose change, or just make laundry day more fun, these 10 easy hacks promise to make a huge difference in your weekly routine.
1. Build a pull-down drying rack.
2. Hang laundry sorting bags.
Save yourself a little time and the headache of having to separate your lights from your darks every time you go to do laundry. Follow the blog Yellow Brick Home's lead and install this clever DIY sorting system. With a couple of canvas bags, a few hooks, and a little elbow grease, you can watch as the laundry basically sorts itself.
3. Put your hamper on wheels.
If carrying your laundry to the washer is more like an ab and bicep workout, consider wheels. Install rolling casters on the bottom of a wire bin by following this easy DIY project from I Spy DIY. And voilà: a cover-up for your two-week-old pile of laundry and an easy way to truck those clothes across the house.
4. Mount your most-needed supplies.
5. Dress up your detergent.
Detergent bottles aren't always the prettiest, but shoving them in a drawer isn't the most efficient option. Show off your laundry soap, bleach, and the like by storing them in clear beverage bottles. Check out how Chloe from the blog Boxwood Avenue dressed up her laundry bottles. And bonus: She even has adorable free printable labels that you can use to stay organized.
