Not everyone has the luxury to live in large spaces, and more often than not, it’s the laundry area that is being compromised.

The washer is placed in an awkward spot and detergents are put together with other bathroom stuff.  It need not be the case because IKEA offers many functional pieces that can turn any small space into a well-designed and efficient laundry room.

Don’t be afraid to make use of the space below a staircase. With sleek and matching cabinets plus laundry room essentials from IKEA, you can make a full laundry room out of this space. You can even have an area for ironing and easily tuck it away when not in use.

A veranda, an outdoor extension, or an unused garage can be utilized as a laundry room too. The best part about it is that it is well-ventilated and doesn’t compete for space inside your house. To achieve the look, go for slim but sturdy pieces like these indoor / outdoor drying racks, cabinets, and laundry baskets from IKEA.

6. Bathroom Invasion

Your bathroom is one ideal place to share with your laundry room. It is accessible to water supply and has proper drainage. However, an unorganized bathroom and laundry room combo is an eyesore and will make bathing and laundry a not so pleasurable experience. To keep things organized, you can use these IKEA wall-mounted shelves, drying racks and baskets.

7. Go Vertical

When you’re dealing with small living spaces, going vertical is your best options. Opt for tall slender shelves, like this one from IKEA, which can provide enough laundry room for your washer and dryer. Make the space look classy by hiding the shelves’ contents with a chic matching door.

8. Closet Surprise

9. Portable Laundry Ensemble

Still can’t find a suitable place for your laundry room? Maybe what you need is a moveable one. Put together these IKEA pieces and create your very own portable laundry system.  Easily move it near your washer and tuck it away somewhere else after use.

10. Ironing Nook

No spot for your ironing board? Consider this wall-mounted folding table from IKEA as a great alternative to the usual bulky one. It is your ultimate smart solution if you want an accessible ironing and folding area.  Create ample space in your laundry room by folding the table down, when not in use.
