The best tip for a laundry room with no counter space is a pull out folding table! This functional little table will encourage you to fold your laundry fresh out of the dryer!

Laundry Basket Storage
I adore this this laundry room for multiple reasons (hello brick floor, I see you and I love you) but the best part has got to be the laundry basket storage! Having a dedicated laundry basket space is ideal for keeping a laundry room tidy and organizing laundry. You can easily sort through whites, colors, and delicates with laundry bins like these.

Add A Rolling Cart Between Laundry Machines
I love this idea from Driven By Decor. She had an awkward space between her washing machine and dryer which is less than ideal. So rather than leaving it empty – like most of us would do – she thought it would be the perfect spot for a rolling cart! A narrow rolling cart like this one is perfect for storing cleaning supplies in your laundry room. Great organization tip!
