|An Inspired Workspace|
If space is an issue, I suggest stacking your washer and dryer and putting in a utility sink with shelf space. If this is not possible, then build a cubby for your appliances and add a solid counter top for folding and storing detergents. If you have a bare wall above your washer and dryer, try installing some cabinet units or shelving to maximize that vertical space.
Designate a basket especially for stain removing items. When you have to spot treat an article, simply grab the bin and all your tools are at your fingertips.
Most homes implement a three basket system for sorting. My personal preference is to sort an entire hamper at once and get it over with. However, I suggest a three basket system for dry cleaning, repairs, and donations. You can use smaller baskets for these items so they won't take up too much room and what a great way to keep your closets purged of unwanted items!
Just because your laundry room is used for chores and needs to be practical and functional, doesn't mean it can't be beautiful. Add some unique touches that make you smile so you can feel happy while you fold!!
