2. Ikea Mesh Drawer System For Backup Supplies

Sometimes, people want to have shelves where they can see all of their supplies at a quick glance. This way, you can easily see if you have supplies left without rummaging through closet cabinets. Ikea sells a few different varieties of their “basket drawer units”. These should work in nearly any laundry room.

When you are organizing, you can divide up each shelf to have a different type of supply in each drawer. The only downside of drawers like this is that it can look messy after a while. I have personally used a drawer set like this in my office in the past. However, now I gravitate towards drawers that are enclosed. It’s really up to personal taste.

1. Hide the Machines With a Curtain

While this might not be the most beautiful thing in the world, hiding your machines with a curtain can be a great solution to an issue. This is especially true if your machines are looking old and busted after having them for over a decade. For people who keep their laundry machine in their kitchen, this might be a good way to hide that.

In order to do this, you will need to install a tension rod across a counter. Alternately, you may need to hang a shower curtain rod and have a fabric shower curtain hanging there as makeshift doors. Make sure you measure everything to be sure you buy the correct sized curtains and rods before you start a project like this.
