Our apartment in Florida had one washer and one dryer on every other floor of the 16 story building we called home. So, when we moved into our current house almost 2 years ago, a washer and dryer that we did not have to share was very exciting news! We spent way too long trying to decide if we wanted a front loader or a top loader washing machine, and ultimately decided on a front loader for this reason, we could (at some point) stack them into this little nook! And 18 months later, we did just that. All of the building details are over at The Apron. So, I’ve got some laundry room ideas to help you keep even the tiniest of laundry rooms organized and cute!
Since our laundry “room” is in our garage and is way more of a nook than a room, we had big plans of stacking the washer and dryer. We ended up getting an awesome deal on a washer and dryer (all about that here), but they are not the same brand and so the pre made stacking kit wasn’t going to work for us. We were going to have to build our own. And 2 years later, voila! It’s finally done! This project could be done in a weekend, but we made it last 4 months… you know, just for fun! (Maxwell makes big DIY projects very tricky these days!) Here’s the simple plan I had brewing in my head for our tiny laundry room:
Tiny laundry room storage tips
Looking to turn a tiny laundry nook into useable in your garage into a usable space? These 6 tips are for you!
1. Hanging space
Andy used pipes to build a super functional hanger. Any hanging space is better than none!
This is likely more important for people, like me, who have a laundry room in their dark garage. We added rope lighting on the inside of both of the square frames since our garage is pretty dark.
We have 3 labeled: Pods, Stains, and Lint
4. Wire shelves
Instead of building fancy wood shelves, we opted to turn this stand shelf vertical into the space between the washer and the wall.
So when you drop laundry it doesn’t fall on the garage floor. Oh and it looks cute!
6. Top shelf
This shelf above the dryer is not necessary, but super useful to store larger items in your garage.
Here is the laundry room nook before:
I love how our laundry nook turned out! It so much more functional and cute. We even have hanging space! The 3 baskets are labeled: Pods, Stain stuff, and Lint! It’s a laundry miracle.

Your laundry nook looks fantastic! It’s so easy for the laundry area to become a disaster in my house. I’m going to have to speak to my hubby about setting up some selves for the laundry soaps and a place to hang clothes on hangers. Thanks for sharing!
