First thing's first – take everything out of your cupboard to assess what you have. Group similar products together on your bench – these guys are about to get a new home!
The best way to organise the contents of your laundry cupboards is to group everything together in baskets – that way you can just reach for whatever you need and its nice and easy. We have a great assortment of decorative baskets in store – just choose the ones that best suit your space.
To add extra useable storage to your laundry, you might want to consider hanging some wire baskets from the back of one of your cupboard doors. We sell a huge range, so you're sure to find one that fits your space.
Free up even more storage space by hanging laundry supplies inside your cupboards. 3M have a great range of temporary hanging solutions – these are fantastic if you're renting. We used a 3M gripper to hang both our mop and broom off the wall – perfect for making sure paint doesn't peel off the walls when you unstick them.
For anything that doesn't quite ‘fit', grab a selection of stackable boxes – perfect for your bits and bobs. Just slide them to the top of your cupboards, set and forget!
Take advantage of your wall space by installing extra hanging rods. Tension rods are particularly great for this and ideal if you're renting as you won't need to screw anything to the wall – just slide out to adjust to the correct width. A game-changer! Over-The-Door hanging rods are also fantastic– we have a variety of different types. We chose matte black, which added a stylish, decorator touch to our room.
Ahh – a place for everything, and everything in its place. Marie Kondo would be proud!
