Need some laundry room inspiration? These 10 quick and EASY small laundry room organization and decor ideas will keep your laundry room organized and beautiful!
Our laundry room is relatively small - about 5 by 10 feet - so I use a few organization tricks to keep it functional. I also think a cute looking laundry area helps make the chore a little more pleasant, so the decor in this space is bright and cheery! Here are 10 organization and decorating ideas I use for my laundry room that I think you might love for yours, too.

Giant Wall Pegboard for Organizing
The oversized, framed pegboard on our laundry room wall helps keep cleaning and laundry items up and off the floors and countertops. On the pegboard, I've hung items like a broom, mop, ironing board, laundry bags and a drying rack. Learn how to make a giant pegboard like this right here.
Pull-Out Drying Rack
Hanging a standard wooden drying rack on hooks on our pegboard saves floor space. I can pull it out to air-dry items as needed, and then push it back in against the wall when it's not in use.
Small Buckets for Lint
I've placed a small wooden shelf on the pegboard, and on that are some small buckets for laundry lint, lost change and other random items. These take the place of a larger garbage bin so that I have more room in this space.
DIY Cafe Curtains
To keep my laundry room looking coordinated and cute, I've made some simple DIY cafe curtains in a floral print. The red in the fabric ties in to my red washer, dryer and cleaning supplies. Get the DIY for these simple curtains right here.
Custom Ironing Board Cover
I also created a DIY ironing board cover to match my curtains. Since the ironing board is hanging on the pegboard, it helps make the laundry room feel cohesive.
Hanging Laundry Bags for Laundry Room Organization
One of my favourite items in my laundry room are these hanging cotton laundry bags. They hang off of hooks on the pegboard wall, and are easy for my whole family to access. Simple iron-on labels made with my Cricut help everyone put their laundry in the right spot. Find these laundry bags here.
Something that can add interest to your laundry room are adding vintage accessories. I love this antique washboard and vintage-look basket in the corner of our laundry room.
Old Door Countertop
Speaking of vintage, I used a vintage door as a countertop over our washer and dryer for a place to fold clothing. The door is secured to the wall with L brackets, and I painted it with brown and tan shades to give it a rustic look.
Shelving with Baskets between the Washer & Dryer
If you have extra space between your washer and dryer, consider adding a narrow shelf. The one in our laundry room is actually an IKEA kitchen shelf and it's the perfect place for dryer sheets and baskets for other items.
I'm always a fan of a good tray, and they're also great for laundry room organization! This DIY tray corrals some of my most-used items like laundry detergent, bottles, and a brush.
