These DIY laundry room projects might actually make you excited to do laundry.
… or at least excited to look at your beautiful, functional laundry room. Turn that cluttered room into an organized system with custom DIY shelving, storage solutions, and folding drying racks.

We love these looks because they’re as clean and fresh as your clothes will be after washing with HEX! Just click the images to go to the instructions for each DIY laundry room project.
Make DIY laundry room counters
If you’ve got front-loading machines, turn the tops into counter space! The waterfall countertop by Vintage Revivals makes the room look instantly clean. Perfect for pre-treating stains and folding (if you’ve got time for that). Add the easy DIY shelves from A Beautiful Mess next to the machines for custom storage.
Use walls for laundry room organization
Make that wall space work overtime with clever shelving solutions. Pegboard looks pretty classy in white, and there are unlimited ways to cleverly attach items to the pegboard. Sincerely, Sara D. uses her wall for laundry supplies and some laundry room art! We could see one of those baskets dedicated to all the stuff you find in boys’ pockets while doing laundry.
Another affordable solution is using wooden crates as wall shelves, as shown here by Home Depot and East Coast Creative Blog. Paint the crates whatever color you’d like, and add supplies and decorations for a clean look!
Go for a full laundry room makeover
Is your laundry room so bland you don’t know where to start? These laundry room transformations will give you hope! View Along The Way‘s series of DIY laundry room projects include adding a patterned wall (without wallpaper), building and installing shelves, redoing vinyl floors, and adding a wall-mounted drying rack.
Southern Hospitality shows that a basement laundry room can be pretty.
Add a DIY drying rack and more
Once you’ve got the perfect laundry room shelving, organization solutions, wall color, and counters, get into some details! Drying racks can be pricey, but you can make your own with the tutorial on The House of Wood. A lovely lint bin looks more like a decoration than a trash can, and mounting it on the wall means one fewer thing kicking around the laundry room floor.
