If there’s open wall space in your laundry room, why not make the most of it? This clever laundry room storage idea utilizes a shallow wall cabinet to store a fold-out ironing board. Instead of having to take the board out of a cabinet and set it up every time, this simple cabinet hack allows you to access it with the flick of a finger. When you’re done, simply fold it away and shut the cabinet, keeping it tidy and out of sight.

9. Open Shelving Solution

Open Shelving Solution

Not a fan of cabinets in small laundry rooms? Try open shelving. Cheap and efficient, open shelving can be a lucrative option both in terms of design layout and price point.

However, just make sure you’re the tidy type. Open shelves can easily appear cluttered when stacked with cleaning supplies, laundry bins and stray clothing items.

10. What About Dark Cabinets?

Dark Cabinets

In a tight laundry space, the color of your cabinets will likely play a role in how large the room appears. However, don’t let that scare you away from choosing a darker, more dramatic hue for your cabinetry. In fact, some laundry rooms benefit from a bold color like jade green or rich espresso. Colors such as these make a statement that can take a drab, boring laundry room to the next level in design.
