Remodeling your laundry room can go a long way to making it an organized, calm space, rather than a cluttered mess. Even if you’re remodeling a small laundry room, adding in cabinets can make a world of change. Here are a few cabinet ideas for even the smallest laundry rooms.

Small Laundry Room Cabinet Ideas

If you have a small laundry room, standard cabinets may not fit or feel too bulky. You’ll need some creative cabinet ideas to maximize storage while maintaining as much open space as possible.


Using Vertical Space in Small Laundry Rooms


Cabinets that fit up to the ceiling are great for storing infrequently used items. Consider shallow cabinets that don’t extend far into the room, but maximize storage potential.

Another way to capitalize on vertical space in small laundry rooms is to use a washer and dryer that stack, then use the remaining space for cabinetry. Custom cabinets can be built around your appliances to conceal them — which can be especially useful if your small laundry room is in a closet or part of another room.

Frameless Cabinets for Small Laundry Rooms

Cabinets that don’t have the traditional “face framing” around the opening or center stile are known as frameless cabinets. Frameless cabinets are perfect for small laundry rooms because they offer more storage space without taking up more wall or air space.


Open Shelves vs Cabinets for Small Laundry Rooms


A benefit of using open shelves vs cabinets in a small laundry room is that you can customize the depth and amount of shelves in your space. Open shelves are a popular design choice that are as functional as they are visually appealing.

One downside to open shelves vs. cabinets is that everything you store will be visible, which means you’ll either need to organize your detergent and laundry accessories aesthetically or get used to seeing everything out in the open.


Lower Cabinet Ideas for Small Laundry Rooms


Lower cabinets are another great storage option, especially if ceiling cabinets aren’t possible due to low or angled ceilings. You can install cabinets to sit next to the washer and dryer, leaving a countertop above for sorting and folding.

Cabinets can also be installed below some freestanding washer and dryers. Choose wide and short cabinets to place under a platform, and make use of extra space by the floor.

Just because you have a small laundry room doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of creative cabinet ideas that make use of the space effectively, while allowing for a beautiful interior design. Consider which types of custom cabinets will work best for your space, and don’t be afraid to think outside the box.
