These small laundry room ideas make the most out of small spaces, from stacked washers and dryers, to laundry closets, to pegboards.
If your laundry room (or even laundry closet) is tight on floor space like mine, every square inch counts. Function has to come first here- after all this is a utility room! So let’s take a look at some hard-working small laundry rooms that make the most of their small spaces.
Stacked Washer & Dryer
Stacking the washer and dryer is one of my very best space-saving hacks, because it frees up valuable floor space for cabinets, laundry baskets, or just a place to stand.
I stacked mine even though I had space to keep them side-by-side in the very small laundry room at my previous house:
This system worked so well, I decided to do something very similar with my new laundry room. I just finished my small laundry room makeover at my new(ish) house. This one has a bit more space, so I was able to squeeze in some Ikea-hacked storage cabinets for cleaning supplies.
Do you have a laundry closet? While it might not be ideal, a little bit of planning and elbow grease will help you make the most of the space you do have.

This space-saving laundry closet by 2 Bees features a stacked washer and dryer, plus storage shelves for detergent, stain removers, etc.
A countertop over side-by-side front load machines is a great surface for folding laundry. I’ve personally never had a big enough laundry space for this to make sense, but if you do then great! Here are a few examples, and you can follow the links to their individual blogs for the full tutorials.
