In the inspiration gallery, check out the various folding racks (including a neat DIY one from Martha) and folding ironing boards, since items that can lay flat against the wall are one key to a tidy and efficient space. Wall- and door-mounted shelves and racks hold supplies and can help the space double as a linen closet. Other neat tricks include using the space above side-by-side washer/dryers as a folding or ironing table or for shelving, or the space next to stacked washer/dryers for shelves and hanging rods.
