Ever consider laundry room storage as the perfect organization idea for the New Year? Consider that not only are laundry rooms a place in your home for both dirty and clean laundry—they’re often used to store overflow like cleaning supplies, outdoor gear inclusive of coats and boots, and other miscellaneous items in your home that don’t have dedicated space. It’s a catchall—but it doesn’t have to be that way! This year, make a laundry room storage plan—and see how quickly this spot becomes your new favorite room in the house!
To begin, incorporating drawers and cabinet space is the perfect way to keep your laundry room clean and uncluttered. That being said, these helpful storage spaces may make it feel impossible to add all the electrical outlets you’ll need to revamp the space, making it more usable. Which is where Docking Drawer outlets come in handy! These patented, easy to specify outlets can be installed safely into drawers and cabinets ensuring they’re out of sight but easily accessible. Be sure to add them to the following spaces as you remodel your laundry room this year.
Sometimes it seems as though our pets have as many gadgets as we do! From blinking collars to bark collars, they all have one thing in common: they need a place to charge. Using a Docking Drawer Charging Outlet in the laundry room is ideal to give these electronics the juice they need, ensuring they’re ready to use as soon as Fido brings you his leash. Best of all, such a drawer provides a nice, hidden space for your pet's chargeables.
Laundry room storage isn’t only for pet collars, of course. If you're a runner—or you use some type of fitness tracker—it's yet another accessory that requires a charging station. It’s also likely you utilize some form of light-up safety gear when running at night. Most people drop these on their kitchen counters—but you don’t have to waste that space or clutter it up! Instead, use a drawer in your newly remodeled laundry room to install another Docking Drawer Blade Charging Outlet (0290-30000W). Your tracker will be ready when you are, but in the meantime, it isn’t cluttering your counter space.
Make Some Space!
Now that you’ve cleared the laundry room clutter of pet supplies, fitness trackers, and a few other odds and ends it’s time to utilize the counter space in your laundry room! Use your flat surfaces not for clutter but instead for organizing your detergents and folding clothes and sheets. You could also turn the space into a drying area by installing a drying rack on the wall that pulls out as needed.
Plug in Your Iron
Wish you could iron clothes into the laundry room instead of your kitchen or bedroom? Now that you have clear countertops, you can! Install a Docking Drawer Powering Outlet—built to power small appliances—into an empty drawer or cabinet. If you don’t install a drying rack on your wall, consider installing an ironing board instead. You can also use a small tabletop ironing board which you store in the cabinets of your laundry room. The dedicated Docking Drawer Powering Outlet will make ironing chores a snap.
Creating hidden laundry baskets in drawers in your laundry room is a great way to create space and keep the space looking clean and uncluttered. It's also a great way to incorporate additional hidden electrical outlets and charging outlets. This is especially ideal if your laundry room lacks wall space for outlets. Simply hide them in the cubbies behind your baskets and voila!
Appliance Pull Out
What the heck is this? We asked that, too! Similar to a pull-out pantry, an “appliance pull out” is essentially a cabinet large enough for all of your cleaning supplies. As it happens, this is the perfect addition to your laundry room as this is a place many families use to store items like mops, vacuum cleaners, and even cleaning chemicals. Even better, you can install a Docking Drawer Blade outlet (0290-30000W) here to provide a charge for your Dyson vacuum while it’s not in use, ensuring it’s ready to go when needed.
Laundry room storage is a trending home remodel topic this year—and it’s one you can easily get in on with the tips we’ve shared above! Remodeling your laundry room won’t take a lot of work—but it can have a lot of benefits for you and your family. Interested in purchasing a Docking Drawer outlet for your laundry room?
