LAUNDRY ROOM REVEAL & ORGANIZING TIPS!


Hey babes! ANYONE ELSE ON A NEW YEAR NEW ME KICK OR JUST ME?

 Like, I want to freshen up my whole house and my diet, and my life. ha!! 

Coming at ya with a little Laundry room organizing and decorating inspo today! First of all, I can't tell you how amazing it is to have this space finished for the most part. 
Our laundry room is a small closet like space/room in our upstairs hallway. I remember when we bought this house and were designing the layout for the upstairs that I was really set on having my laundry room upstairs and not in the basement. It's so nice not having to carry laundry baskets up and down steps 24/7! 

However, for years, the laundry room sat unfinished and it really tore at my heart strings a little bit and spiked my anxiety walking in there.Walls were half painted, half not, ceilings weren't all the way drywalled, there was no decor, or sense or organization and I just HATED doing the laundry in there. For lots of people having a pretty laundry room doesn't make a ton of sense but when you're a Mom and it's basically where you spend ALL your time, you know how beneficial it can be to have a pretty space to do laundry. 

I still want to do a few things in here, eventually get a new washer and dryer, ( the dents in the door? yeah, those are from me getting mad and kicking the dang thing because it wouldn't turn on.. ) and install a countertop of some kind over top the washer and dryer units, but for now, we just diy'ed some shelves, painted, put in new flooring and threw up some wallpaper, which I think makes a huge statement on a budget! Baby steps, ya know? Living in a fixer upper is NO JOKE. And it's not for the faint of heart, that's fo sho!!!

but here we are!!!


After we painted, put up the wallpaper and DIY'ed the shelves, I hit up the good ole' 
Wal-Mart for some fresh decor, and organizing things to start the new year on the right foot! I've been loving Wal-Mart and their fun decor selections lately, and well, they have some pretty cute clothes too! It's always one of my go to's because they have a great selection of baskets, bins, jars, and containers for organizing and for affordable prices! 

When organizing the Laundry room, I know things being functional is most important. So I got some clear jars with lids, similar to what I have in our bathroom, to store our dryer balls, scent pods and laundry detergent in! I think the jars are pretty and have a spa like vibe to them, they're super great for organizing when you want to SEE what you're using but also want things to look tidy and put together! 

I also grabbed some faux plants, for a STEAL, and some funky and fun baskets to decorate with and use. And since laundry and linens kind of go hand in hand, I snagged some new towels too, cause, why not? 

When organizing your Laundry Rooms, I want you to keep these things in mind, similar to when we've organized other spaces, I work in these steps, sometimes it results in us renovating a space, adding new wallpaper etc, but most of the time I try to just ORGANIZE and worry less about looks and more about functionality. 

SO I typically follow these steps: 

1. GRAB A TRASH BAG AND CLEAN HOUSE!-
 I get rid of everything I don't recognize or know what it's for. I'm pretty ruthless with this, I figure if we haven't used it since I cleaned house last time we probably won't so I just ditch it. In the laundry room, now is a good time, or either organize socks and put like with like, or get rid of any that don't have a match. 

2. REMOVE EVERYTHING. (and I mean everything!)-
I take everything off the shelves, cabinets, etc, and then I sort like with like, in the laundry room, this typically means, stain removers go with other stain removers, laundry detergent with other laundry detergent, etc. while sorting. I also remove any any all decor, and discard unused or half used products. 

3. RE-DECORATE IF DESIRED-
(or put everything back in it's place sorting like with like, like talked about in step 2.) If you want to jazz up your space, faux plants are great for laundry rooms, or you could DIY some shelves (like we did here) after placing like products with like products now is when I like to shop for organizing things that I might benefit from having. 

4. PURCHASE ANY ITEMS NEEDED TO ORGANIZE-
tip: I NEVER EVER PURCHASE organizing supplies unless I know exactly what I'm using them for or until AFTER a space is purged or organized. lots of times I need less than what I think! For the laundry room, I suggest things like a dirty clothes hamper, a basket for toting clothes into their appropriate rooms, a basket for stray socks (I try to keep ours sorted but it doesn't always work and I play catch up on Sunday usually.) I also like to ditch any store bought containers and place detergent in etc in clear jars. I also transfer stain removers, etc, to glass bottles and keep over flow of products in a discreet basket. 

OTHER TIPS:
If you like pretty and functional spaces here are some tips for ya!

Keep sprays and treatments in glass spray bottles, like this one!

I'm not sure why but labels bother me. I know, it's a weird pet peeve of mine. So glass bottles it is! Or baskets. I also really like baskets.

I also like to store our detergent pods, dryer balls and scent pods in these glass jars with lids. I just think it's cool having things be functional AND pretty all at once.


AND THAT'S IT. You're done! Organizing doesn't have to be overwhelming, it should inspire you, not stress you out, don't overthink it, follow the 4 easy steps above, tackle one project at a time at your OWN PACE, and you're on your way to living a more organized, functional LIFE!!! :) also, don't forget to hit up the wal-mart when you're ready to buy your organizing goodies or just snag some new fresh, affordable decor! 




Linking up what I used in our laundry room below for you to easily shop!
