How to transform your laundry

Whether you’ve got a room, galley, nook or cupboard, it’s easy to transform your laundry using these handy storage tips.

Go up the wall

Take your storage to the ceiling by mounting cabinets or shelves to the wall above your dryer and washing machine. This is a great place to keep any dangerous cleaning products, out of reach of young children.

Laundry cabinet

Use the space below

If you can’t go above, you can always go below. Create storage next to or under your dryer and washing machine by installing a cabinet. Or, you can use baskets, drawers and shelving for additional organisation.

Laundry benchtop

Build around it

Mount a benchtop above your dryer and washing machine for folding clothes. If you've got a top loader, you can install a hinged benchtop that folds up and down. If you rent or don't want to drill into the walls, you can create your own standalone benchtop.

Hanging clothes from a ceiling rod

Add a rod

Add a rod inside a cupboard, underneath a shelf or on the wall above your countertop for hanging delicate items on hangers. Or, use the rod as a hanging storage organiser to keep things like cleaning supplies and gloves.

Hampers under bench in laundry

Get it sorted

Use shelf dividers to create cubbies on existing shelves for separating things like linen and towels. You can also maximise shelf space by organising small, loose items such as first aid supplies and toiletries into labelled boxes and then stacking them on top of one another. A hamper or two will also help you get dirty clothes off the floor.

Fold up ironing board in laundry

Fold it up

Save time and effort with a fold-down ironing board. Mount it behind a door, inside a cupboard or on a wall.

Retractable clothesline in laundry

Hang it out

Suspend a ladder from the roof using ceiling hooks for a clothes drying rack that doesn’t take up any room. If you don’t have a ladder you can install a retractable clothesline or pullout hanging rack under a shelf. You can also mount hooks to the inside of a long cupboard door to hold your broom, mop and dustpan.
