A stacking washer and dryer are great for smaller spaces and make room for a built-in ironing board and additional storage — household cleaning supplies, central vac hose and broom closet. And ironing board in drawer.
I love the counter on top of the washer and dryer and extends all the way to the door and incorporates the sink. Under cupboard lighting is a good idea and I need a new laundry door and this could be an option, it will let more light in.
Four wall-mounted drying racks in a mudroom create an instant indoor drying room; recreate the look with four wall-mounted racks from Ikea. For something similar, consider Ikea's wall-mounted Grundtal Drying Rack; Photo via Bolig Magasinet.
Organize cleaning supplies under the kitchen sink with built in drawer organizers. Can also use same idea with beauty supplies in the bathroom. I like this drawer cause it's more childproof than cupboards.
