Project: Laundry Room
Recently a client contacted us to help with her laundry room. Our client is a wonderful hostess who often has large parties coming to stay. Lots of linens, entertaining and home maintenance supplies can easily overwhelm this small space.
Sarah and I used a few strategies to get this place looking neat and fabulous in no time.
Sarah and Emily’s Steps:
#1 Empty out closets and drawers and group similar items together into groups.
#2 Determine if the group is necessary for this space or if the group would be better stored somewhere else in the home.
#3 Corral groups into Tupperware bins or storage bags.
#4 Determine placement in room for groups based on size of group and how often the group is used.
#5 Arrange groups in cupboards and shelves and make sure they are easy to identify and access.
The last step is absolutely crucial. If bins and containers are not easy to see or access it will be hard to keep things neat.
Because our client had so many linens we found the best way to organize them was by sheet sets. We bundled sets together with twine and labeled them. Next time our client has visitors it will hopefully be a lot easier to find that twin fitted sheet!
We also bundled her large comforters ‘sleeping bag style’ to optimize the space.
We believe that you can be organized no matter what budget. This room cost under $20. We corralled batteries and small supplies etc these $1 shoe boxes found at Big Lots.
We found storage bags on clearance at Bed, Bath and Beyond. We used twine and tags that the client already owned. We loved this project! Thank you to our client for letting us participate, we hope you are enjoying it. Please contact us if you are interested in our help in an organization project; firstname.lastname@example.org.
