Going Vertical in The Laundry Room…On The Cheap

Going Vertical in The Laundry Room…On The Cheap

We have lots of storage space underneath our kitchen sink--just not enough to fit everything that needs to be handy. For example, wading through cleaning supplies to reach dog and cat food two times day just isn't as convenient as we'd like. So we looked to the adjacent laundry room to utilize vertical space.

With just under 26 inches in length and 14 inches in depth, there was little room for the metro shelving we so desperately wanted. We also didn't feel like hanging/reinforcing more shelving to store heavy items. So when we sought out more renter friendly solutions, we were thrilled to find IKEA's Hyllis shelving unit. Very inexpensive at $14.99, we couldn't resist. Fitting perfectly in our laundry room, the dog and cat food is now super accessible (as well as all of our laundry supplies).

And check out these alternative options for inexpensive shelving;

Industrial shelving
Shelving made from hollow-core doors
