You don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics for functionality—you can create beautiful and hardworking utility spaces that inspire efficiency and organization. This applies to your laundry room as well—whether you’re fortunate enough to be working with a large space or just have one that’s more closet-sized—we recommend starting with the essentials: a bright source of overhead lighting, a utilitarian sink, quality brass plumbing, and plenty of well-planned storage. We have everything you’ll need to complete your space.

1. Start With Overhead Lighting

It’s hard to keep any space organized and efficient if you can’t see what you’re doing, that’s why starting with a stylish source of overhead lighting is always important—especially in your laundry room. We love the use of flush and semi-flush mount lights in utilitarian spaces. They are up and out of the way and give off bright even illumination, like our Crawford Flush Mounts shown here.

2. Add Hooks and a Hook Rack

Wall hooks and hook racks are easy updates that help declutter your countertop and keep things off the floor, adding another layer of organization and storage to any space. We have a wide range of styles, from our whimsical solid brass animal hooks to our Mid-Century-inspired wooden Fin Hook Rack—which in addition to being super functional, also makes a beautiful design statement.

3. Add Bins and Baskets

Keep every space looking neat and organized with our wide range of bins and baskets—functional storage solutions that guarantee that everything is tucked away and easy to find. Our industrial-inspired Steele Canvas Laundry Bins are beloved for their form and function and perfect for both laundry and storage.

4. Install Shelves and a Rod Set or Rail System

Shelving is a great way to add additional storage into any space and keep key pieces organized and within reach. Our shelving is designed to be customized—select shelves and brackets to match your space, and choose from multiple depths, woods, and finish options. Optimize your configuration with undermount hooks, a customizable rod set, or rail system like our Brookside Hook Rail System to hold all your important odds and ends.

5. Elevate Your Space with Quality Plumbing and Cabinet Hardware

Your laundry room is a hardworking space—but that doesn’t mean that it has to be too utilitarian. Elevate your laundry room sink with high quality plumbing. Choose solid brass cabinet hardware in a matching finish for a consolidated look that enhances your entire space.
