Hi everyone!

I’m going to be working on a full blown renovation to our laundry room / pantry, everything from floor to counters, cabinets and shelving. It’s a medium sized room. I’d interested in unique storage / shelving designs like pull out / built in laundry hampers and ironing board and a wall mount / unfoldable drying rack. I’ll also use the room for pantry / food storage.

If anyone has a functional, well thought out room, would love to see pictures or get tips on design, etc.

Thank you!

I am a huge fan of modular wire shelving and have them in my property since the mid 90s.

The shelves come in different width and length, just slot them onto poles at 1in/2.54cm intervals.

Configurations can be changed to suit and non-permanent.

Metro Shelving is the original brand, however, there are many good quality generic ones on the market nowadays.

A dedicated tall cabinet for vacuum cleaners, brooms, mops only. Sounds ridiculous but too many times they are stored with other items and it is a pain to remove and replace these items as the other junk is in the way. Then a dedicated large cabinet with a ton of shelves for cleaning products and items only. I have also seen in luxury homes a built in small TV across from the built in ironing board with a dedicated electrical wall outlet for the iron. A long counter to stack and fold laundry. Finally, I have seen built in drying racks attached to a cabinet that you can pull out and hang wet things directly next to the washer. It can then be closed up after the clothes are dried. I have also seen racks mounted/ suspended under the ceiling by the back wall so you are not walking into wet hanging clothes. A window is nice to bring in fresh air and to vent any moisture. Pantry-wise a must is a cabinet with width and depth to store large platters. I’ve seen these with vertical slots to prevent stacking chipping or cracking. My choice of shelving and countertops is stainless steel. Easy to clean and does not stain. Very hygienic and sturdy to hold heavy items. Finally plenty of electrical sockets to charge electronic items ( which the cords always clutter up the kitchen counter) and for extra kitchen appliances.

I could ( but im not) show you a before photo :lol-2: well not until i too have an after !
But storage ! Storage! Storage !

I second the tall cupboard for the vacuum cleaner and brooms etc

also i would love a built in ironing board that folds away (but im never going to have the wall space for that)

I would love a really fancy laundry tub, not like the poxy little one we have now

good luck with your renovations, hope it doesn't take too long

So we have a small laundry room as well, with a fairly newish home [6 years]. They put in cabinets and a sink, so storage is nice. But there is 0 room for a laundry bin or anywhere to hang anything. We just got this and mounted it into a stud and it sure is nice not having to iron shirts/pants any more that come right out of the dryer that lay around until I can get to them to hang up somewhere.
