6 cube organizer

According to a report by NPR, the size of the average American home has nearly tripled over the past 50 years. But even though that should mean we have more space, the reality is that we also have more stuff. Storage is a huge concern for many families, which means it's often necessary to get creative -- particularly in smaller, more cramped spaces.

Take your laundry room, for example. Your large laundry appliances take up enough space as it is, but it's also imperative that you have room for both dirty and clean clothes, laundering supplies, and even spillover from other areas of the house. If you're struggling to fit everything in and still have the physical space to wash your clothes, you might want to check out these creative ideas for laundry room organization.

  1. Use a 3 shelf organizer for supplies

    One of the challenges of laundry room storage is that you need frequently used items to be readily accessible without adding to your clutter. All too often, detergent sits on top of the dryer or gets placed in an inconvenient overhead cabinet. Instead, consider using a shelf organizer or even a bookshelf to keep detergent, bleach, stain removers, and dryer sheets within close reach. This will make storage and use more convenient yet won't make a mess in your space.

  2. Sort clothes with a 6 cube organizer

    Hampers and laundry baskets are okay for individual bedrooms, but bringing them all down to the laundry room can make things feel even more claustrophobic. If you have a big family or simply have a lot of clothes, you can make things easier and more aesthetically appealing by using a 6 cube organizer or two to sort dirty linens and even freshly laundered items like towels, shirts, and jeans. You can even use smaller baskets or crates inside for smaller items like socks, scarves, and undergarments.

  3. Keep jars or canisters for odds 'n ends

    If you're in charge of the laundry at your house, you'll probably know just how many items end up in the wash that shouldn't be there. Small items like loose change, bobby pins, and hair ties can easily get lost if you don't have a special place for them. Consider using glass jars or attractive canisters (housed in your 6 cube organizer or other stackable cube organizers) to hold these items, plus clothespins, safety pins, and other laundry must-haves. That way, everyone can find what they've lost!

  4. Use maple storage cubes to hold other cleaning supplies

    A good housekeeper needs proper storage for their cleaning supplies. Sometimes, a hall pantry or under-the-sink storage just won't cut it. Fortunately, you can use storage cubes to keep track of bottles of cleaning supplies and other items like toilet paper, tissue boxes, disposable wipes, rags, and more. By keeping these supplies all in one place, there'll never be any question about where a family member can find more. Plus, you'll get a chance to display them in a more attractive way.

  5. Store outdoor gear in laundry room organizers, too

    Although your home may be bigger than ones built 50 years ago, most of us know we need our rooms to pull double duty. In many cases, your laundry room may double as a mud room or provide storage for items that aren't used for cleaning or washing clothes. You can use a 6 cube organizer to store shoes (especially specialty shoes used for hiking, swimming, or in the rain) or items used for outdoor game play and adventuring. It's the best way to make sure these items are accessible yet don't take up valuable real estate in other areas of your home.
