5 Organised laundry designs to inspire you

I have been researching laundries lately as I want to make a few changes to mine and was looking for some inspiration.  I would like some additional shelves, place rails underneath the overhead cupboards for drying clothes, new matching front loader washer and dryer set to then extend my bench to give room to fold and sort laundry and if I really could I’d also makeover the cabinets.  This is on my long term wish list, like a few years down the track, but a girl can start saving, plan and dream!!  Here are some organised laundry designs to inspire you too!

I love the wall tiles and gold tap-ware in Julia and Sasha’s laundry.

I love the natural sunlight in this laundry – not to mention the genius Strucket bucket! I have a few of these in my laundry now, and they make soaking, separating and draining laundry a cinch! They come in four colours which you can shop here.

I’m a fan of the open shelves on the left by designcafe001, but I don’t love the frosted glass doors and being able to see through them.

I only recently discovered the Exit Pre-wash Stain Remover and the Exit Soap Block, and they are both absolute game-changers! They make incredibly light work of blood, biro, boot polish, grease, lipstick, red wine, and many other households stains – plus they’re both 100% Australian made and owned.

I keep my Exit Soap on this Soap Riser which allows the water to drain away, and in turn makes my soap last even longer.

I’m totally crushing over donna_guyler_designs laundry door, it’s gorgeous!  Although I do like to keep airflow through my laundry as it also stores the cat littler box. But I’d love to make this work!!

This rail is perfect for drying clothes, getting them straight out of the washing machine to ‘fingers crossed’ prevent ironing or to dry overnight. I like the wooden element added to this laundry by KyalandKara.

Unfortunately, washing is one of those tedious jobs that is never-ending, you think you have found the bottom of the pile, but the next day it’s back! Having a laundry schedule will help you stay in control of your dirty laundry piles. This helps me to make sure the kids always have clean school uniforms.

I love using these 100% organic merino wool dryer balls! They allow me to dry my laundry quicker, improve my power bill, and reduce static and wrinkles from my laundry. I add a few drops of lemongrass essential oil and grapefruit essential oil on my wool balls to make my laundry smell fresh and lovely.

If my laundry was that clean and organised I would out a chandelier in there too!

Where do the buckets go? And the laundry baskets? They are a major feature of my laundry routine and often used for other cleaning tasks too. They are always hard to store or in use in the tub. Our useless broom cupboard is no help for that

Haha, they are pretty beautiful aren’t they Jill?! Regarding cleaning buckets and laundry baskets – I keep my buckets for soaking under the laundry sink, and the washing basket is always on top of my washing machine. The basket is in constant use, so it doesn’t ever get stored away at my place.

Hi Katrina,
My husband is currently redoing my laundry for me based on the image on your site. I love love love the glass door with the diamond pattern and I must have one. Do you have any tips where I might be able to buy one?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife June 18, 2019 - 2:02 PM

You are very lucky Tracy – what a delightful hubby you must have 🙂 I am sorry I don’t know where that glass door is from. The original pic can be found here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BfpZy6vhV8S/?taken-by=donna_guyler_design – but it only mentions the cabinetry and the splash-back. Sorry, and good luck!

What type of washing hamper do you recommend? I only have space in a small bathroom to put it n.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife August 25, 2020 - 1:11 PM

Siobhan I don’t actually keep laundry baskets in any of our bathrooms or bedrooms. I taught my children from a young age that all dirty laundry gets placed directly into the laundry – this makes doing the laundry really easy too, because it’s all in the laundry ready to go. I just use washing baskets in the laundry (the same ones that I take the washed laundry out to the line with). The kids have also learnt that if they forget to put their washing in the laundry, then it doesn’t get washed! Hope this helps 🙂

Hello, I was sondering where you purchased your little wooden sign – “Know when to hold em” that is in your laundry
too cute

Katrina - The Organised Housewife March 24, 2021 - 1:10 PM

Hi Anne, it was available at my store Organised HQ, but unfortunately we are out of stock. There is a range of other cute signs and wall art available though – https://organisedhq.com.au/product-category/home-decor/wall-art/
