          “Having a tidy utility room is a great way to turn a sometimes forgotten room into a functional and fully utilized space,” says Lizzie Beasley, Head of Magnet Design. “There are many great and effective ways to organize your utility room that cost little, but are perfect for organizing all your household essentials.”

          Here’s how to get the most out of your utility room:

          Try sustainable options

          The rise of refillable household items (like washing powder and soap) along with an increasing number of refill shops means you can stock up on all your household essentials in your utility room while avoiding waste or unnecessary packaging.

          Invest in multiple sustainable glass and bamboo jars that are not only easy to access but also easy to refill. Opt for open shelving and make your jar collection a deliberate visual feature of your utility room.

          Remember to keep laundry and cleaning products out of the reach of children and lock out dangerous chemicals such as bleach.

          Stacked devices are the key to saving space

          Utility rooms are usually small spaces (if not, you’re in luck), meaning that every inch needs to be used to optimum effect. A popular space saver is to stack your washer and tumble dryer vertically.

          For an extra helpful touch, place a pull-out shelf in the space between your appliances so you can fold your clothes as soon as they come out of the dryer. You can even add a pull-out or folding ironing board for maximum productivity. Plus, the extra surface area is always handy.

          Two sinks are better than one

          Hand washing is never fun, but sometimes it’s unavoidable. The same goes for soaking up stains and rubbing marks. A split sink, or better yet two sinks, means you’re not limited to what one half is used for. You may be washing your houseplants while brightening your whites.

          Multiple sink options also mean you can prioritize hygiene and dedicate one to hand washing and another for the dirtier chore – especially handy if you have pets!

          Prefer built-in cabinets

          Built-in closet is a great choice for making the most of your utility room’s space, especially if it’s on the small side. You can store unsightly items in cabinets, keep cleaning products out of the reach of children, and keep food away from pets.
