We have a small master bedroom and one of our biggest storage problems has been where to put laundry hampers. For the past few years, they’ve just been placed willy nilly at the foot of our bed like this:
GAH! So ugly!
And it has been driving me crazy.
Recently Wayfair challenged me to come up with a clever storage solution for a room in my house and with my ugly laundry hamper problem in mind, I went browsing on their site for some kind of pretty laundry sorter.
I was so excited when I found some cute laundry hamper benches. I measured and realized that three benches pushed together would fit perfectly at the foot of our bed.
Here’s my storage solution:
Isn’t it so much better than mismatched laundry baskets overflowing with dirty clothes?
I love that my laundry is now hidden away and that there are three bins so we can sort our laundry right away into whites, darks and towels. Each cabinet has a removable fabric bin that lifts right out so I can easily carry them to the laundry room.
It’s also really great that we have a place to sit while we put on our shoes or what not. That was a bonus I hadn’t realized I would love as much as I do.
The hampers required some assembly, but I was able to build them without help and they didn’t take long. If you’ve built furniture before, it’s pretty standard construction of cam locks and a few screws. The only tool you need is a screwdriver.
I am so glad to have finally come up with a solution for this problem area of our home. Before I was literally airing my dirty laundry to everyone (ha!) and now it’s tucked neatly away. If you have a small bedroom too, Wayfair has several different styles and sizes of laundry hamper cabinets available, so I’m sure you can find the perfect solution for your space.
Like this idea? Pin it so you don’t forget it!
