Very Small Utility Room Ideas

A small utility room can be an important part of the home. This is often where appliances like hot water heaters, furnaces, washers, dryers, and freezers are stored. Cleaning equipment and supplies may also be stored in this space. This small room should be functional and pleasing to look at, especially if you spend a lot of time there. In this blog post, we’ll go over the best very small utility room ideas.

Utility Room Storage: Functionality & Organization

Make sure the things you use regularly are easy to reach. Infrequently used items can be put on a higher shelf or in a different part of the room.

Store your laundry soap in smaller containers and refill as needed. Keep the large bulky detergent containers up and out of the way while the smaller easier to manage containers are within arms reach.

Utilize storage bins. Have bins clearly labeled with what’s in them so you know where everything goes and you can easily find things that you need.

Have a laundry bag specifically for each type of laundry. For example, you may have one for darks, whites, delicates, heavily soiled items, etc.

If you can affix a table to the wall for folding, do it. Just make sure you aren’t blocking access to anything like any of the other appliances you have in your utility room. A table that folds up and down might be a useful use of the space.

Don’t forget a drying rack. If you’re short on space, a portable rack can be folded and stored when not in use.

Attach an ironing board to the wall. Keep your iron stored in a handy place so you can iron things as soon as you pull them out of the dryer.

Add a pole or a hook over the door for hanging your freshly ironed items on. Make sure you can easily grab the clothes so you can put them in the proper closets.

Keep extra clothes hangers in a storage bin in your utility room. These should be easily accessible items in the room. Have mesh bags with your cleaning supplies as well for any delicates that need to be washed. Champion Delicate Wash is a neutral pH cleaner that is perfect for washing all types of delicate fabrics.

Separate your utility room into specific areas. Keep the laundry, pet supplies, and crafting supplies in their own spaces.

Store lost socks in a bag in the laundry area. Eventually, their mates will show up!

Don’t forget the trash can for collecting lint from the lint trap, dryer sheets if you use them, and any other trash you come across when emptying out pockets (used tissues, love notes, etc.)

It is a good idea to use a high-quality dust mop or dusting mitt to make sure that your favorite storage locations are free of pesky dust particles. It’s always annoying to pull precious items out of storage and have them coated in dust. The Champion Old Fashioned Dust Mop and Microfiber Dusting Mitt are the perfect dusting tools to keep in your utility room for regular maintenance.
