Lost Socks and Laundry Room Solutions

Beth Rice 11/01/2018

Laundry rooms are often small spaces that get a lot of traffic. Create a functional, attractive laundry room with Amish furniture and décor. We have also included a DIY project that will help you reunite socks that mysteriously disappear.

Shelves to the Rescue

Shelves are friends in laundry rooms. Make use of vertical space or empty corners and hang shelves to help you organize.

The Amish Hardwood Aspen Mission Shelf creates a spot to stow laundry detergent and dryer sheets.

Open shelves in the Amish Pine Hall Shelf allow easy access to stored trash bags, sponges, and small items. Two hooks are handy for hanging delicate items to dry.

Use a Curtain or Better Yet, a Barn Door!

For laundry areas with no door, separate your space with a curtain. Or, you could use our favorite space divider – a sliding barn door.

The Farmhouse Sliding Barn Door fits right in with modern spaces.

Employ Pet-Friendly Features

Set up a cozy spot for your pet to rest while you fluff and fold!

The Amish Hardwood San Marino Pet Lounge creates a spot for your cat or dog to lounge in the laundry room.

Personalize with Artwork

Brighten the space with colorful artwork. A family photo, children’s drawings, or framed art will make your laundry room a more pleasurable place.

We like some typography or quilted artwork to liven up the space above the washer and dryer.

You can also liven up the room with a couple of problem-solving DIY projects.

Popular on Pinterest, this cute lint bin by Melissa of Polished Habitat is easy to make. All you need is a plastic container, plastic primer, and craft paint in your favorite color.
