How to organise a laundry storage cupboard

Who doesn't love a good sneak peek into other people's storage spaces?! I know that some of my most pinned Pinterest images are those that show sneaky storage solutions, or clever ideas for 'adding' space in a tight spot. 

Luckily for us, in our new laundry, storage space is not an issue - with a huge cupboard, we have plenty of room for all the laundry essentials, plus some added extras from other rooms! In the last episode of The Organised You TV, I revealed the new laundry room that we created ourselves as part of our home renovation. And in the second part of this reveal, I'm showing you inside our laundry storage cupboard.

In my previous laundry, the cupboard space I had to work with was limited, which taught me some clever organisation and storage tricks that I've been able to carry into this new space. This included the use of:

  • Storage boxes and baskets (to hide away and corral loose supplies)
  • Small-drawer units (for those little bits and pieces)
  • Hooks (for creating as much hanging space as possible on the walls)
  • A divided dish rack (this one's a real winner), and...
  • Labels (of course!)

So are you ready to take a look at how I organised our laundry storage cupboard? Just click on the video below to take a sneak peek... 


Once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to know...

What's your favourite hack for creating extra storage? And more importantly, is there an organisation trick you can take away from this video to implement with your own storage space?

Revealed: a tour of our terrific new laundry room

Revealed: a tour of our terrific new laundry room

I'm excited today to finally be giving you a tour of our new laundry room - it's been a long time coming! After we 'completed' our home renovation last year, we were left with 100s of little (and many not so little!) jobs to complete. One of those included the build of our entire laundry. A rather daunting task to say the least!

However, we'd been planning this new space for a long time, and knew exactly what we wanted - you may remember this post where I outlined my wish list of features and items I hoped to include. A detailed plan always makes any big project easier to dive into!

How to get through your laundry quickly and easily

How to get through your laundry quickly and easily

Do you dread doing laundry? 

Do you feel overwhelmed or stressed about the baskets piled high with dirty washing, or the amount of sorting and folding you have to get through on a weekly basis?

Do you feel like you're tackling this chore solo, and feel frustrated that the entire process lies solely on your shoulders?

Laundry is one of those household chores that feels like there's never a real end to, as there always seems to be one of the stages needing your attention - whether it's the pre-sorting, the washing, hanging out the clothes, sorting, folding, ironing, putting away.... And if you let it get out of hand, it can take a huge amount of time and effort to get back on top of it!
