In my own laundry, I have a bench that runs nearly the entire length of the room, which gets used for folding washing, sorting school bags, etc. It works for us, but we have the luxury of a whole room and we don't rent. When I came across this idea, I wished I had seen it long ago when I had laundry facilities crammed into bathrooms, cupboards, kitchens and any other cubby hole a washing machine could be shoved. Hopefully some of you will find it helpful.
