Laundry Room Cabinets

As a writer for Family Handyman, I’ve seen a lot of laundry room inspiration over the years. And while I love all those little things that keep laundry spaces organized — moving your soap into a clear jar, adding a cute bin to collect lint, etc. — only one element will truly make yours clutter-free. Cabinets!

The right cabinetry layout hides clutter behind closed doors and makes your laundry process more efficient. Options include built-in hampers, or a pull-out folding drawer.

I know installing cabinets takes a lot more work and expense than buying a few bins, but the investment is worth it. Here are some stunning laundry rooms to prove my point.

Ample Storage

If I had this gorgeous laundry room from @mmmillworksoflouisiana, you’d never hear me complain about washing or folding again!

The upper and lower cabinets wrap around the entire space. So there’s room for laundry and cleaning supplies, plus non-laundry things like gift wrapping and essential pet items. You can never have too many cabinets.

To save money on her laundry room makeover, @sundayhousedesign installed affordable IKEA cabinets, but used a hack so they don’t look like IKEA cabinets.

The soft, sage green doors seen here are from Semihandmade, a company that provides beautiful, ready-to-paint doors to fit standard IKEA cabinet boxes. You can get a custom look without the custom price!

DIY Painted Cabinets

If new laundry room cabinets aren’t in your budget, paint your old ones for a new look.

These dated cabinets from @reclaimed_cottage got refreshed with a cheerful green paint job (Northern Glen by Valspar). She also removed the door from the cabinet above the sink. This breaks up all the cabinetry and creates a space for cute accessories.

Multi-Functional Cabinets

The dark green cabinetry makes this laundry room from @oakville_interiors sleek and clean. Upper and lower cabinets plus wide drawers keep everything nice and tidy. And, surprise! The drawers are actually freezers filled with frozen treats!

Small Space Cabinets

You might not think you have room for cabinets in a small laundry room, but even just a couple can make a big difference in conquering clutter.

There are only two simple cabinets above the washer and dryer in this petite laundry room from @cabinetjoint. But notice how they reach almost all the way to the ceiling, the largest size this small space can accommodate.

Custom Appliance Cabinet

How about instead of a cabinet near your washer and dryer, a cabinet that conceals your washer and dryer?

Watch as @outoflinedesigns demonstrates her amazing DIY cabinet that hides the washer and dryer inside. It makes for a more aesthetically pleasing laundry room. The doors feature decorative screens so the machines can vent properly.

@christinamariadesign Do you hate the sight of the roomba charging station as much as I do? Build it a house and call it a cabinet!

Roomba Laundry Cabinet

The laundry room is often also the hub for all household cleaning supplies and tools. That’s why this idea from @christinamariadesign is genius!

The custom cabinet seen here hides the charging docks for a robot vacuum and robot mop. The elevated cabinet allows the cleaning machines to easily slide underneath. The cabinet also features pull-out drawers for drying sweaters, etc.

@diyplaybook Our laundry room is the hardest working room in our house. With two young kids, we do lots of laundry! I’m so happy we took the time to make this space functional (and pretty!) for our family of four. #laundryroom #DIYlaundryroom #laundryroomdecor #laundryroomideas #laundryroomorganization ♬ original sound – DIY Playbook || Home & Design

Pull-Out Hampers

Watch as @diyplaybook installs IKEA kitchen cabinets in her laundry room. There’s a lot to love here, including the rich green color and that tall vertical cabinet for more storage.

The star feature? The trio of pull-out hampers, actually meant to be pull-out trash cans for the kitchen. The hidden hampers keep all that laundry tucked away until you’re ready to tackle it.
