Cleaning Giveaway

It’s the #BrilliantHEClean Sweepstakes & Home Depot Giveaway

One of my favorite images to repin on Pinterest are organized laundry rooms. Wow there are some neat ones! It is a dream to have a good laundry room with shelves and closet space to hang clothes. Counter space and a place to iron would be a bonus.

The average family does 400 loads of laundry in a year. Just think of how much time we spend in the laundry room! It should be a nice place, right? Well, I hope yours is better than mine. Jenny Komenda, decorator and blogger at The Little Green Notebook shares her organization tips. You can see her awesome laundry room and Pin her tips!

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 For less than $30 in materials, the outdated linoleum, brick pavers and old, dark cabinets were updated in this laundry room with paint and with a concrete overlay product.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.

  • sadly my "laundry room" is in the basement next to the furnace and water heater. not much I can do with it. I usually fold clothes watching TV anyway.
  • Our laundry room is small, I wish we have more space to add a folding area. Currently I use storage boxes to keep it neat and organized.
  • it is a small cramped up room with the washer and dryer side by side with a little bit of space on each side.
  • I Do not really have a "Laundry Room" I live in a very small condo and have a space next to the bathroom for a stackable washer and dryer.
  • We moved recently to a small home and remodeled the kitchen right away (we still need to finish painting. The laundry room,however, is a complete disaster! It is only a "laundry room" in the sense that it has washer/dryer hookups. More work to do!
  • My current laundry room is a decent size roomed with wire shelves above the washer and dryer. There is also a hanging rack below the shelves which is nice for when I have a bunch of stuff to hang up straight from the dryer. We are in an apartment currently so I haven't done any painting or put up any wall décor. Hopefully next month when we move to our house we will be able to have a cute laundry room!
  • My laundry room looks like it exploded :) I have two children and being organized is not my forte
  • my laundry room just has some cabinets and a counter to fold laundry; i would like somewhere to hang clothes that I dont want to put in the dryer
  • Well we definitely use it for our dirty laundry baskets along with other things that should not be in a laundry room like a baby stroller and a tricycle.
  • My laundry room is very small. I have two cabinets above, but no walking around space, so I have to fold clothes on my bed.
  • My laundry room is in the basement. I have a front load washer and an apartment sized dryer - I don't dry much. I have a drying rack in the furnace room and another one in the family room.
  • We have a small room that is basically a closet. My biggest tip is to have good storage, we have cabinets about the washer and dryer to stock our detergents. Makes the area work much better.
  • Right now it's a real mess because we had a flood, but my dream is to really organize it with lots of shelves and hanging baskets, and a new washer and dryer!!
  • The garage is our laundry room. We have a shelf above the washer and dryer and a table to fold clothes on.
  • My laundry room is a mess right now. It is small and needs cleaned out and I need to organize it.
  • My laundry room is in my basement. I have it sectioned off. I have a sink in it also with a shelf for my laundry products.
  • My laundry room is very narrow and there's not much room in there . In fact, I often hit my elbow while loading the washer. It was fine with my old washer and dryer but then I had to have the HE machines and they take up quite a bit more room, depth-wise.
  • It's in the basement of our apartment, and my parents are in a closet close to the kitchen, which i love because its a space saver and hides well.
  • My laundry room, well I wear shoes when I enter and b-Line straight to the washer/dryer. I don't even let my kid come in. She has to watch from the doorway. It's that bad.
  • My laundry room is also a spare bathroom in the basement. Its nothing special and pretty much neglected to tell you the truth. I have wanted to redo it and put in a shower forever but havent yet. Would be a great job this coming winter though!
  • My "laundry room" is just part of our basement. There is no organization, it's just a big mess of dirty laundry.
  • I rent, but have a full size stackable and just enough room for detergent on the side of the ground
  • I do my laundry in the basement. It's not a very pleasant or pretty place. It needs so much more than a makeover. Ugh.
  • My laundry room could use some updating but it has cupboards and a window to let the light in.
  • Washer and dryer are in big basement room with the furnace. Not very fancy. Thanks for the giveaway.
  • My laundry room is not a pretty sight! It's in the basement of a house that over 100 years old with dirt floors and stone walls! The basement is actually quite interesting but very wet & dingy.
  • My laundry room is a very small room between the living room and garage. With a lot of junk in it and a basket of unfolded laundry. It's not a pretty sight.
  • I like my laundry room. I have a cabinet over the washer/dryer. I'd love a rolling laundry butler though Thanks!
  • laundry area is in the garage I have to keep it neat and tidy as people can see it when the garage door is open
  • Laundry is a job that never seems to end. I am so glad my laundry room is on the first floor and not in the basement.
  • My laundry room is small and narrow. It's hard to move the washer and dryer to dust behind them. We've installed extra cabinets for storage.
  • Our laundry room is DARK! There are no windows and the previous owner painted it an ugly puke green with dark brown cabinets! It's not air conditioned so it's the one room we haven't touched in the house yet. It does have lots of storage though! :-)
  • I have front loading machines with a wide folding counter on top. On the other side of the room Is a built in sewing area where I can keep my sewing machine out and ready to use. I was lucky enough to be able to design my own laundry room when we built our home a few years ago.
  • I have a metal rolling utility cart/shelf in my laundry room, it is great for storing the products you only use once in a while.
  • I don't have a laundry room; it's more like a little closet in the kitchen. But it does have a shelf for storing items at least. I'd love to have a room where I could fold laundry and hide it away until it's put away.
  • I don't have a laundry room and if I did I am sure my husband still couldn't put his clothes in the hamper.
  • Gak! My laundry room is also our dog's room. So dog hair i'm sure is up under the washer/dryer and behind the freezer. I can't wait to clean it up and have a real laundry room!
  • my landry room is just a laundry closet, i wish I had a whole room, also it is in the main hallway so you can hear the washer/dryer going in the living room, what a pain!
  • my laundry room has lint all over it, because my son swiches clothes from the washer to the dryer, and he seems to forget to throw away the lint from the lint trap
  • My laundry room needs a makeover. I have the bottles of clothes soap all over the floor. And I have items stacked on top of the dryer. I need to get a shelf put up so I can get my clothes soap easy. What a mess. I need my laundry room organized!
  • I wish I had a laundry room. My machines are sitting wide open in our basement. Maybe I should build some walls and turn that part into a "room"...hmmmm
  • My laundry area is very small, it's really just a laundry "closet". I dream of a huge walk-in laundry room and mud room with storage cubbies and lots of space.
  • My laundry room isn't too bad. It's not big enough to set up an ironing board in. But, I've improved it by putting some colorful fabric bins for storage and strung a clothesline along one wall to dry unmentionables, bathing suits, etc. jtmagmom73(at)gmail(dot)com
  • Tim just built me a real laundry room last year and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I have a folding table and cabinet space for storage and a big tile floor that if I drop wet clothes on, doesn't make them all dirty! Best addition we ever put in the house.
  • My laundry room has become a catch all for everything from muddy shoes to soccer balls, and I have to climb over EVERYTHING to get to my washer and dryer...I need an organization + clued in family makeover! :)

  • My laundry room is at my mom's house (*sigh* yes I know I'm 38... in my defense I rent the 2nd floor of an old Victorian house-no hook ups) That being said, I currently have 5 (ish) very big tote bags of laundry in my entry way that I have been avoiding. I've gone so far as to buy clean pj's at Target. On the bright side my mom's laundry room is very neat! lol-ugh.
  • My laundry room is on the small side. I wish I could have it remodeled to have more counter space for folding.
  • I have a glorified laundry closet. So my best tip is organization! It is the key to using mine to it's full capacity!
  • Our washer/dryer are in the garage. Nine times out of ten I have to remove tools from the man's latest project off the top in order to use them. Grrrrr.
  • My laundry room is too small for all the things that seem to land there - it needs to be twice the size it is to be able to maneuver well.

  • My laundry machine is in a large closet off my bathroom. It's still cozy since I've added a nice shelf unit and rug.
  • My laundry room has a nice tall counter for me to fold clothes on so its no longer sitting on my bed or couch. Best tip I ever received was to do one load of laundry from washing to putting away before doing the next. Helps to keep you from getting backed up!
  • my laundry room is not too terribly small but there is a freezer in there that takes up a lot of space!
  • My laundry room is a small room on our second floor with a side by side washer and dryer and a shelf with lots of supplies. My tip is to have more than 1 shelf. I am running out of space.
  • My laundry room is a mess. We just returned from a week away. Otherwise, it is a bit too small. It's a long narrowish rectangle.
  • I try my best not to let my laundry pile up on me but sometimes it just happens. Esp when my son has not managed to bring his hamper the 40 feet to the laundry room. Then it can be overwhelming.
  • Oh my gosh my laundry room is basically the hallway of our apartment. It's a mess right now. I don't really have any tips but maybe something my pop pop always says do wash every Sunday or when your basket gets full?!?!? I need tips myself, so I'll be looking at everyone's comments lol. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  • My laundry room has blue side by side washer n dryer, a vaccuum cleaner and all my cleaning supplies and rags ect.

  • My laundry room is a small space in the back of my kitchen there is a shelf above the washer and a cabinet above the dryer
  • I don't have a laundry room unfortunatetly, just a space to stick a washer. I don't really have any washing tips but I love all the new "enviro-friendly" laundry options now available. Thanks for the giveaway.
  • my laundry room is in an adjoining room to our house so I have to go outside to go into my laundry room and I hate that especialy in the winter or when its raining!
  • My laundry room is the typical apt split layout (ie apt). Nothing super fancy, but I do "have a dream" of a majestic laundry/mud room one day!
  • My laundry is a hallway of sorts between the kitchen and the garage. I love the Tip #2 about decoupage the inside of the cabinet doors. I may just try that. Thanks
  • My laundry room is in the garage and is fairly organized with shelves above the washer and dryer. Just not real pretty!
  • We just moved to a new house and the laundry room is bigger now as it is the rear entry from the garage into the kitchen, but I need to find a solution for hanging space!
  • My laundry room is very, very boring! I would like some more things to help organize it, and I'd love to paint it black and hot pink! :)
  • It's kind of blah. It's in the breezeway between the house & the garage. Doesn't make me feel happy to be there & needs some sprucing up.
  • We have shelves above our washer/dryer that I can't even reach. Been wanting to rip those out and put in cabinets since we moved in.
  • Our laundry room is nothing to write how about - but we do have a nice big sorting and folding table and my Honey/Hubby put up a long sturdy rod with hangers etc for delicate and permanent press clothes. They do help a lot
  • Our place is a rental. It is basically a closet with some shelving way above the machines, I can barely reach them. Diana C
  • We replaced our kitchen cabinets several years ago and put the old one in the laundry room. They're great, but I'd love to redo the floors and walls.

  • My laundry room is in my utility closet and I have to go outside to get to it. But that's better than having to go to a laundry mat so I'm not complaining...even though it sounds like I am.
  • Love the idea of a counter area for a folding station. I would love for my laundry to folded before it leaves the room into the big world of grime, only to be seen once again shortly!
  • we have a laundry room between two of the bedrooms. Its just big enough for the washer and dryer.
  • My laundry room has a basket of clean clothes on the washer and a load in the dryer! My tip is for getting ink or just about anything out of clothing, use aerosol hairspray, spay it on the spot and wash. It gets everything out.
  • My laundry room is a mess it is very small and I have never put up shelves yet so everything is just thrown in there.
  • My laundry room has cabinets above my washer and dryer that are very helpful for storing all my laundry needs. Soaking in the warmest water possible helps me get my husbands laundry (work clothes especially) cleaner! Thank You!
