Laundry room storage ideas: A home for hangers

  • Comments 4

A home for hangers
When I remodeled my laundry room, my motto was “a home for everything.” I installed cabinets and shelves and drawers and pegboard…

But the nicest little storage feature is this towel bar mounted under a cabinet. It keeps hangers untangled and within easy reach as clothes come out of the dryer. If you want to install one, check the thickness of the cabinet before you drive screws. I discovered that a screw through the bottom of a detergent jug won’t cause a leak until you yank the jug out of the cabinet.

      I did this too, on a larger scale, since we have an extended family that equals 6. With 2 going to work, & one in school. Lotsa changes of clothes and not much closet space. I used plastic cheap towel bars like for the bathroom. We just have shelves. On the other side which has a 8 ft. shelf, I just put up 1/2" round on the edge so things could be hung & not slide off. It became an "open closet" but it kept clothes on hangers, which didn't fall down when one walked by.

      This is a simply yet very practical idea. My hangers are chucked away in one huge basket or just a little storage container and it could get really frustrating at times if they do get entangled with one another. It makes my laundry take up much more time than actual. I tried hanging them at my window but that takes up too much space. I will most certainly suggest this idea to my husband and hope he can just drill this simple towel hanger to our cabinet by this weekend.

      Solutions do not necessarily require the involvement of hefty expenditure but instead just some creative ideas that are out of the box. For my storage unit, I also utilize the space as much as possible by putting in shelves and racks which help to maximize storage to a very high level.

      Now this is a neat little storage trick for hangers that I wouldn't have thought of myself! Thanks for sharing it!
