Laundry rooms are often some of the most chaotic rooms in the house. They can be cluttered with laundry baskets, clothes, and other items. It can be difficult to keep the laundry room organized and tidy.

However, there are a few tips that can help make laundry room organization a bit easier. One tip is to invest in some laundry room storage solutions. This could include laundry baskets that can be stored on shelves, or even a laundry room cabinet where cleaning supplies can be stored.

Now here’s a DIY laundry sorter project you can do if you want an improved and more organized laundry room! This laundry sorter is perfect for small spaces. It includes a hanging rod for shirts and pants, as well as a lid to hide dirty clothes. The lid also doubles as a surface for folding clean laundry. This hamper is a great way to keep your laundry organized and out of sight.

The hampers are designed for easy removal, so you can take them out when you need to wash them or when you have dirty laundry. This laundry sorter makes it easy to keep your space clean and tidy and means you won’t have to lug a heavy hamper around when you’re doing laundry.

If you prefer a mobile unit, you can simply make some minor changes and add wheel casters to this laundry sorter design. This will allow you to easily move the unit around as needed, which can be helpful if you have a small space or need to move the unit out of the way periodically. Additionally, adding wheel casters can also make it easier to transport the unit to a laundromat or other location if needed.

If you’re looking for a laundry sorter that can make your life easier, you may want to consider this option. This sorter has three compartments, so you can easily sort your laundry into lights, darks, and delicates. It also has a built-in lint trap, so you can easily remove lint and hair from your clothes. Plus, the wheels on the bottom make it easy to move from room to room. What do you think? Is this the perfect laundry sorter for you?
