6. Hang drying racks. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a designated room just for doing laundry. Those who do probably still might not have a ton of space. A pulley system allows a drying rack to be mounted at the ceiling and pulled down for service. If you design it right, you can even fit one into a laundry closet above two side-by-side units.

9. Don’t overlook air-drying systems. For clothes that are destined to be air-dried, here’s a great feature the British have been using for centuries: a ceiling-mounted pulley system. The rack is composed of either four or six laths suspended between two cast iron ends and anchored to a marine-style wall cleat. To load and unload, lower the pulley to your desired height by pulling on the cord. Raising it upward keeps longer articles from brushing the floor and also makes use of warmer air at the ceiling level. When not in use, it’s out of the way. Preserve your wardrobe by air-drying clothes on these drying racksAlthough this particular example, by Crisp Architects, was custom designed, similar systems can be purchased through Pulleymaid. Just make sure you have adequate support in the ceiling. By itself, a system weighs between 6½ and 10 pounds. You’ll need about 9 inches of clearance from the ceiling to clear any encroaching door swings.

Pull down system for air drying

This would be helpful for drying things inside, where you can put them on the rack, then pull the rack up to where it’s warmer and out of the way
