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.
Above: a sliding vintage door reveals a laundry room nook in a home from Style Me Pretty. There's a sink for handwashing delicates, and the countertop that extends across both machines is a great spot for folding and stacking laundry.
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.
This laundry room/mudroom combo from Houzz incorporates a bench and hanging space.
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.
A half bath turned lovely laundry room from Chris Loves Julia. The laundry room sink is nice to have, if you've got the space.

Here's a laundry closet from Elextrolux that even boasts a sink.
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.
