I used to have a big laundry room & now I have a laundry closet. I've been able to accommodate the 12 features, mostly in this closet & other areas of the house & make a functional laundry system in this smaller space. How did I do this? I used Elfa Shelving from The Container Store. I used their expert designer who worked with me to design this closet. I like using their experts because they really are familiar with the product & it's free. I did my own installation. They will do that too, but I enjoy it. I ripped out the one rod, one shelf that the builder put in. The install for the Elfa Shelving is so easy, that's why I like using it for projects like this. All you have to install is the track along the top. All the drilling & putting in of screws & things like that is involved with the track. Everything else hangs down & snaps on to the track. Once you've done the track, it all falls into place & it's very forgiving. Believe me if I can do it, you can do it. Number 1, the washer & dryer. I have a front loading washer & dryer, that gives me the surface on top of the washer & dryer to make that available for folding, or putting other items that need to be stored, like laundry baskets. The 2nd thing is sorting & staging space. This is space to sort your dirty clothes. What I've done is accommodate that in my closet upstairs. I do have a place for some dirty clothes, like dishtowels, that originate from this floor. The 3rd thing in an ideal laundry room is folding space. Because, I have a front loading washer & dryer, I can use the top of this for folding. Most of the time I enjoy taking the clothes over to another surface, like my sofa. That way I can interact with other people & have more space & listen to music or something else. Number 4 is hanging space. You want to have that close to the dryer so you can hang things up right when they're coming out & minimize the wrinkles. I was able to accommodate that on the back of the door. Number 5 is drip-dry space. For me this is one of the most important things because I have a lot of exercise clothing that I wear & my delicate items that I don't want to put in the dryer. Number 6, storage & shelving. For holding your clean clothes & other kinds of items, obviously I have a lot of shelving in here. This goes all the way up to the ceiling. I really have almost more space than I need, which is kind of funny. Number 7 is cleaning & laundry supplies. I have put all of that on the door. I also have a caddy that's on one of these upper shelves, so that I can grab a few things at once. Number 8 is an ironing station. This is one thing that I've taken completely out of this space & moved to the master closet. Number 9 is maintenance supplies. You want to have a place for handy household tools, like your tape measure, & common screwdrivers & things that you need. Number 10 is what we call "the lonely socks place." I believe when you have a sock that doesn't have its mate; you don't want to take that to a second location. Keep that centralized in the laundry area so that eventually they find their way to their match. At some point, I have a lonely socks wedding & put those together & donate whatever is left. Number 11 is pocket items, for things that fall out of your pockets in the dryer. Number 12 is a trash can for the dryer lint & all the other things that you pull out of pockets. That's how I've been able to accommodate all 12 of those functions in this small space & still have room to spare.
