Budget Laundry Room Makeover


For years I've dealt with a decent-sized laundry room that had absolutely no storage (except for the shelf on one side). After my washing machine needed repair I decided it was time to do something about it. The entire remodel was around $125.

The laundry room before. The opposite side was almost identical and held the washer and dryer.

We built platforms a year ago but that's as far as we got.

After cleaning everything out, I built shelving.

Initially I was going to leave the shelving open, but decided to add doors.

I added floating shelves and built drying racks using pallet wood and knobs from Hobby Lobby.

I added baskets under the platforms for dry cleaning and taking clean clothes upstairs for folding.

I added a light I made from a pendant kit and candle holder.

The shelving stored the vacuum and such, as well as laundry baskets.

Storage for vacuum cleaner, steamer and mops.

I added a shelf for the Spot Bot. :-)

I added shelving for the laundry baskets.

A few baskets from Target provided extra storage and lets me "hide" things I don't want to have to look at (paint supplies and such). The total project only took a couple of days and has been great! I finally have storage for all my cleaning supplies and everything feels so much more organized. Not bad for $125. :-)

    My laundry room is 2/3 the size of yours and has a washer, drier, fridge, and back door. And a window! I don’t need the baskets since we have a divided laundry sorter in the master closet, where 90% of our dirty clothes come from. And we fold and hang clean clothes in the bedroom, where the closet and the dresser drawers are. I’m working on a plan to utilize the space I have. Thank you for the inspiration! ☺️
