Our DIY Basement Laundry Room Makeover updated July 2019. Don’t miss these laundry room storage and organization ideas that can be implemented in even the smallest laundry rooms. Scroll to the bottom to shop this space (affiliate links provided for your shopping pleasure).

Anyone tired of their dreary small laundry room? Living with four generations under one roof, we needed more than 1 laundry space so we added one in the basement a few years back.

The laundry room is really in a closet in one of the bathrooms. It wasn’t necessarily awful but it lacked in character and all the pretty stuff. You know, stuff that makes you want to do laundry.

If that is even possible. Wayfair is on a mission this month to share fabulous DIY laundry room makeovers and I was pretty excited when they asked me to participate.

You may remember last fall, we did a complete makeover on our upstairs laundry room and we are still loving it. I am not still loving laundry, that only lasted for a day. ha

The pegboard solution in a laundry closet is perfect for blank wall space. You can get pegboards in all shapes and sizes and they are great for hanging small accessories.

Of course, every laundry room should have a cute sign (similar) spelling out the laundry rules! I love this sign!

I used green plastic paper bins to keep the toilet paper together, hand woven hyacinth baskets to coral cleaning supplies as well as paper towels and the addition of the stainless steel rolling cart worked out perfectly for laundry supplies.

The wooden hangers were a warm welcome compared to the old wire ones we were using. I absolutely love the ticking striped rug by Dash & Albert along with the lined banana leaf laundry basket. Doesn’t it look cute?
