Struggling to keep a small laundry room tidy? Frank Turco, manager of trend and design at The Home Depot Canada suggests simple storage solutions to keep this room functional and clean.

Shelf savers: Ready-to-assemble units with at least two shelves can store everything from laundry detergents and stain removers to sponges, kitchen linens and clothes pegs. Use a variety of small plastic or fabric drawers and bins to keep items organized on the shelves.

Hook it up: Install a heavy duty storage hook to the wall behind the laundry room door to keep the ironing board easily accessible. And for extra coat storage or drying space, add a hook bar to the back of the door..

Clothing cupboard: Turn an empty lower cabinet into temporary storage for ready-to-wash laundry. Simply measure the cupboard space to determine what size of clothing hamper will best fit. The Canvas Hamper by Martha Stewart Living pulls out for easy use—and looks great too.
