This three-bin laundry sorter provides an easy place for tossing dirty clothes at bathtime. Because it's so streamlined and attractive, it doesn't detract from the room's design, and it blends with the palette as well.
If you have space in a drawer or closet, consider retrofitting it with pull-down hampers. Removable liners make it a snap to carry clothes to the washer.
Here's a solution that works great for smaller closets: pretty baskets stacked to one side. The only drawback is that they don't hold as much as regular-size bins.
These labeled fabric bins fit into specially designed cubbies, but you could stack your own customized versions in a closet or on a shelf.
When I hear the words "laundry bag," I think back to the industrial-size nylon version I had in college. But these pretty ones, made from mattress covers, suit the soft, cottagey style of the space. You could have a set of them custom made from a fabric that matches your decor.
A walk-in closet also makes an ideal space for installing a built-in fold-down ironing board.
This retro-look laundry cart would pair well with an industrial or eclectic room. It's so cute that you don't even need to hide it.
Here's a four-bag sorter almost exactly like the one I have. Because my washer and dryer are two flights of stairs away from my closet, I don't use the casters, but in a single-story home you could easily pull it wherever you like.
A freestanding double hamper with tilt-down drawers mimics the look of furniture — just right for a bedroom.
I'm not usually a fan of sticking a hamper in the corner of a room. But this mod-meets-whimsical style is so much fun that it might sway me.
Pretty woven baskets in crisp white and chartreuse add a cheerful note to a mundane chore. Tuck them along the closet floor or stack a few on a shelving unit.
Meet the Crunch Can, a marvel of smart design that expands and collapses as needed. I have four, and I use them for all kinds of tasks — including ferrying laundry upstairs to fold. When it's empty, the can squashes flat for easy storage.
A portable tabletop ironing board takes up much less storage space than a standard model. Why haven't I bought one of these yet?
