We may envy folks with giant, dreamy washrooms with multiple machines and enough folding space for a small village...but that doesn't mean it's not possible to fit a stylish and highly functional laundry room into a small space. Here are ten hardworking little laundry rooms that prove that bigger isn't always better.

This laundry closet from At Home Arkansas also has a countertop for folding. The cabinets are perfect for tucking away laundry supplies, and a hanging rod provides a catch-all for homeless hangers.

This little laundry room from The Woodgrain Cottage cleverly incorporates storage above and below the machines. There's just enough room for a folding table, and an ironing board hangs on the wall when not in use.

From I Heart Organizing, a great example of how even a garage laundry room can be stylish and functional. We especially like the low hanging bar for coat hangers.

From Martha Stewart, here's another laundry closet tucked into a bathroom. Things we like: the folding board that pulls out from between the washer and dryer, and the shade that pulls down to cover everything up when not in use.
