Getting your clothes clean is time consuming and usually ends up at the bottom of a long list of household chores. The average family does around 400 loads of laundry each year – which is a whole lot of time spent in the laundry room! Doing laundry doesn’t have to be at the bottom of your list any longer. With products like Tide and Maytag, and a functional, well-designed space, you can get clothes clean in one wash and have more time to spend with your family and friends. Disclosure: I was provided with a prize pack as compensation for sharing this giveaway with you!

The Home Depot is your one-stop shop for finding everything you need for your laundry room, including great cleaning products, appliances, organizing, storage and decorating items. To celebrate the #BrilliantHEClean campaign, Home Depot is offering a $100 gift card with the purchase of a Maytag Powerwash machine & 150 oz. Tide.

Jenny Komenda, decorator and blogger at The Little Green Notebook has shared these tips on how to create a more efficient space in your laundry room!

Jenny’s tips for overhauling and organizing your laundry room:

Tip #1: Dealing with a dark, cave-like laundry room is a chore in and of itself! By taking off the doors on a few of your upper cabinets, you’ll open up the space and create a place to store baskets. In this laundry room, we assigned baskets for every member of the house, which makes sorting a breeze!

Tip #2: Why not decoupage or paint insides of cabinets for a fun pop of color? It’s a guaranteed smile each and every time you reach for your detergent.

Tip #3: Don’t like the cabinets, floors and countertops in your laundry room? Every surface can be painted or resurfaced! For less than $30 in materials, the outdated linoleum, brick pavers and old, dark cabinets were updated in this laundry room with paint and with a concrete overlay product.

Tip #4: A rolling laundry butler can be your best friend, doing triple duty with a hanging bar, a rolling basket and a drying rack. It’s the perfect choice for a laundry room with limited space that hasn’t been updated in a few decades.

Tip #5: Don’t neglect your laundry room walls! Hanging interesting art and mirrors will elevate your room and make it feel less utilitarian and more “homey”. Suddenly those 400 loads of laundry most of us will do this year might actually be enjoyable!

Tip #6: Use a slab of stone or a simple piece of painted MDF on top of the washer/dryer units to create a folding station and to prevent socks from slipping in between the appliances.

Go visit your local Home Depot to get a kick start on your own laundry room overhaul!

    My Tip Is To Use Fun Colored Coded Bins For Each Family Member To Hold, Sort And Put Laundry Away.

  2. Kayla B says

    We use different size and shaped bins for each member of the household. I also keep a radio in my laundry room so i can listen to music while folding!

  3. courtney d says

    my tip for organizing is to work on a small area every week (ex: a drawer, a shelf, etc) so that it doesnt become overwhelming.

  4. Aimee Marie says

    Best organization tip is get rid of whatever you don’t use. It really is much easier to keep everything in it’s place if you only have to keep track of stuff that serves a purpose

  5. Jessie C. says

    Label bins and boxes help to get things organized. Also, de-clutter regularly, never piles stuffs up for too long.

  6. Robin Wilson says

    I have a ton of scarves and they were taking up an entire drawer in my chest of drawers. So I used round, plastic shower curtain rings ($3 at Family Dollar) and hooked the to a coat hanger, threaded a scarf through each one and voila! I can hang more than a dozen scarves on a single hanger without taking up more room than a sweater in my closet.

    everything should have a place and when you are finished with what you are doing, you always put it back in its home.

  8. ANN*H says

    I donate what I want to get rid of first . If you dont use it in a year get rid of it. Try to clean a bit every day so its not over whelming all at once

  9. Cynthia R says

    My biggest tip is to clean up items as soon as you are done with them, and make sure everything has a place.
