I think I might have a small obsession with laundry room organization and makeovers. This is like the 4th one on this blog in the past 4 years: our first home, second home, my neighbor’s, and now this one… my brother’s house.
His family just moved into a brand new home and they wanted to get a couple rooms organized, especially the laundry room. With two young kids, they use this room more often than they’d like. This little niche seemed like the perfect place to add some organizational storage.
And here’s what it looks like now!
Hubba hubba, right?
I actually decided to use a ClosetMaid SuiteSymphony™ 25 inch Starter Kit organizer for this space, something that would normally be used in a reach-in closet. I popped on their website and actually got to design the layout once I input the measurements of my space in their ClosetMaid® Easy-to-Use on-line Design Tool.
ClosetMaid.com was very helpful in showing several finishes and configurations, plus it created my SuiteSymphony™ shopping list right there!
The entire system took about 3 hours to install, including all 4 drawers. Much faster than I anticipated! And now they have so much additional storage in their laundry room! Loving those adjustable shelves behind the cabinet doors.I opted for 2 large drawers and 2 smaller drawers towards the bottom. Great place to store clean towels and blankets.
Plus now they can even store their tools and other miscellaneous items in here. And don’t you love this Natural Gray finish? It looks so dreamy against the new blue color I painted on the walls.
Now I still need to add the side shelves and some rods to either side of this closet unit to really finish the space, but I needed a certain metal saw to cut the metal rods. And there’s still a whole other side of the laundry room you guys need to see! We’re building a hamper storage unit with countertop so stay tuned for that tutorial!
But can you believe this ClosetMaid before & after?
Doesn’t even feel like the same space!
So one lucky reader is going to win one
ClosetMaid® SuiteSymphony™ 16 inch Starter Kit Organizer in Natural Gray.
To enter, just tell me where you would like more organization!

My closet needs help! I’ve been eyeing these for awhile now.
Jen Y says
The mud room & the craft room – either one would really use one of these!
Alanna Mizell says
I would LOVE to organize either my walk-in closet OR my laundry room!!
Laundry room or master closet could really use some organizing!
Hillary Holler says
My craft supplies are EVERYWHERE, I need MAJOR HELP!
We are in the middle of renovating our bathroom and kitchen. I would love to have this so that I can also spruce up our laundry area!
Kay Mc says
I have a craft room that I have a love/hate relationship with. I love to play in there but it’s so unorganized it also stresses me out. This would be a great start in helping me get organized in there.
Our bedroom! We don’t have a closet and are planning on building one soon!
My bathroom could use some MAJOR help!! 🙂

I NEED MORE ORGANIZATION IN MY LAUNDRY ROOM AS WELL, I HAVE TWO DOGS THAT STAY IN THERE OCCASIONALLY. MY WASHER, DRYER, IRONING BOARD, ETC.
This would be great for our entryway closet – it’s not just the place we keep all of our coats. It’s really the place we keep all of our extra “stuff” like our cold weather gear (boots, snowpants, hats, gloves), our pre-packed pool and park bags (so I can grab them on the fly) and the “exit zone” for all of the things on the way out of the house (Goodwill and pet shelter donations, items to be returned that were borrowed, etc.). There is currently one long rod across the top under a very high shelf with a lot of wasted space underneath the hanging coats. The kids would probably like to have their own bins to store their stuff in and I know my hubby would appreciate a better system than the brown grocery store bags that line the bottom floor :). It works, but it sure ain’t pretty!!!!
Gail McMurray says
If I have to pick just one place I would say my office, it’s a mess.
My laundry room and my bedroom for starters…..
Melinda Ritchie says
I could use one of these in my son’s room as a closet. He uses our FROG as his bedroom and doesn’t currently have one.
To be honest my car. I’m working in the community as a nurse and trying to keep my car clean is a nightmare with all the supplies and paperwork I carry
Judy I, St. Louis MO says
This would be great in my laundry room. I’m using a junky old metal cabinet now.
Monica VandeWerken says
Our master bedroom! Let’s get that stuff put AWAY!
The laundry room is in desperate need…
I would love this unit to put in our guest room……the drawers could be used for sheets and guest items and the top cold be arranged to hold a tv/dvr/dvd player. Everything would be organized as well as accessible.
Julie Forrester says
I need organization everywhere but mostly in my laundry room with a family of 5. I am the sole provider so my income doesn’t allow for much extras. This is awesome and what I am looking for to start and keep and add to later.
I guess ‘everywhere’ is too vague, right?
I have two closets in the upstairs hall. One is fairly large and it could sure use something like this to make it make sense.
Our master closet needs help!!
Heather Haugen says
Our upstairs bathroom could use some serious organization help.
I love all of your posts! I’m always waiting for a new one! My closet totally needs these!
My laundry room for sure!
Both of my daughters’ closets need to be redone. Love that gray color. And the color you painted your brother’s laundry room. And the cute valance. Come to my house, please?
Definitely laundry room – I need help!
My craft room is my “oh my goodness” room, it definitely needs help!
I would like more organization in so many places, closets, laundrt rm, kitchen and bathroom.
The garage. There is stuff everywhere.
I, too, need more organization in the laundry room!
Great idea !!!! The closet needs more help .!!!! TY
I need more organization in our basement (that’s where my laundry area is and where I would like to put a small craft area for me once we get around to redoing it) and the garage.
My junk room needs serious organization!!
My bedroom closet stays in a state of disorganization.
Julie P says
My laundry room could use more organization…you’ve given me some motivation!
Jessica Styers says
My bathroom needs more Storage space! Everything is on the counters. Lol. Thank you! I love your blog!
Wear emoting next month, and my new laundry room will DEFINATELY need this with 4 kids! Right now, there is only cabinet storage above the washer and dryer that I’m too short to reach!
My son’s room. Oy ve! It’s a disaster zone.
My husband’s closet needs help desperately. We just bought our house in September and his closet is a disaster.
My laundry room is in dire need of some organization!
The real question is, where wouldn’t I want more organization?!?
Linda N says
Sadly enough I can’t think of a room that couldn’t benefit from a bit more organization, but my craft/scrap-booking/office is most in need. Lots of things that need to be sorted and stored properly but not a lot of furniture pieces to do it with. Love your idea of using closet organization pieces in other places in the house. Fantastic!
What a beautiful item! I need help just about everywhere, but this beautiful piece would be really helpful in the bedroom! It is gorgeous! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
Julie Wood says
My Bathroom needs a towel shelf like this one because my other one broke, and I have my towels in plastic bins right now, and it looks awful! I would organize all towels, and cleaning supplies and have them in one location to find and this Big shelf would make my bathroom look so much better!
Hannah G says
I need to do lots of organizing in my son’s bedroom.
Kathleen Lee says
My husband and I are planning a closet remodel that is long overdue. This system would be perfect!
I could use a cabinet in my office/craft room to store totes and yarn!
my laundry room for sure!!
carol clark says
my son’s bedroom sure could use a pick me up his closet i can seem to control
Anne @ Anne and Adam Build a House says
We are moving into a new house, so we need organization…everywhere! But especially in the laundry room–I really want to add some cabinets or shelving there. I do love that color finish.
Karen T says
My laundry room for sure! I like your ideas.
Esmeralda S says
Definitely the master closet. The layout is strange, so it can use closet maid to make it better.
melissa eversmann says
My laundry room needs so much help. It is our entrance to the house from the garage so everything gets dropped there.
Rachel Collins says
I need more space and organization in my bathroom and laundry room. I have 3 kids and there is clutter from all the laundry and clutter from everyday life everywhere. This would help so much! This would be great for the laundry room or the bathroom. We have lots of towels and nowhere to put them! Thanks so much for the chance!
Amanda M. says
I need some organizing help in my laundry room.
Love the storage. We need laundry organization and office organization.
I would love some extra organization in my husband’s office.
Sonia Johnson says
I need more organization in my laundry room and garage
Need more organization in kitchen!!! I cook with way too many spices and prepare home-cooked meals everyday for my family.
Carol B says
My bedroom is in serious need of help! I have an older house & there’s very, very little closet space anywhere. I use a garment rack right now in the bedroom to hang clothes & it’s very unsteady & has collapsed on me more than once! This would be perfect. I could also use the metal rods & attach them to the wall the same way you’re doing. What a great way to solve a real problem.
Lisa Jeffrey says
My closet is a mess!
Lan Nguyen says
I need some organizing help in the mud room / laundry room !!
Katy M says
Our laundry room or bathroom always seem to be unorganized, mostly because I’ve never taken the time to find an organizational system that works in those areas so it just becomes clutter filed.
I would like to have more organization in my guest room.
