Free Standing and Wall Mounted Laundry Shelves for Your Home
Storage areas in the home are sometimes hard to come by because of a lack of room to put shelving units or simply having too much stuff to fit. There are plenty of laundry shelving ideas to create more storage, for holding necessities or just for decoration, that will work for just about every room in the house. Some storage areas are complex cabinets that take a lot a lot of time and effort to install, and others can be purchased and installed in mere minutes. Some units are installed because they look nice and others are installed because they are needed. The reasons behind adding storage to your home is different for different people and homes, but the result is typically the same – a beautiful addition that has multiple uses. Sometimes the most essential storage unit in your house is the simplest. A shelf has so many uses, can be used in every single room and takes up absolutely no floor space or very little floor space depending on the kind of shelves that you choose. One of the styles that come in handy more for storage than decoration is laundry shelves.
There are many different kinds of shelves that you can find for your home, but shelves in the laundry room will create essential storage in one of the most versatile rooms. Laundry shelves can range from those that sit on the floor as wall units to the ones that hang on the wall above the washer and dryer like a standard shelf you would find in the living room. There are also door shelves that hang over a door for storage of cleaners and other supplies. Some shelves can be made of wood or metal and sometimes although rarely, even plastic. The most convenient and useful of available laundry shelves is one that hangs over your washer and dryer. These laundry shelves hold soap and dryer sheets and keep them within arm's reach when you need them most. Laundry shelves that sit on the floor hold more and are great storage accessories. They can be set up to hold baskets (like small "cubbies") or as actual shelves to store things like linens and such. Floor shelves are not always as accessible for the washer as wall shelves but they hold more items, can be used for multiple purposes, and can be closed off by some kind of closet door when it is not being used. Over the door shelves work great in kitchen pantries or as laundry room shelves for holding everything you need to stay organized.
Laundry shelves can be found at everyday retail stores such as Wal-Mart or K-Mart or home improvement stores such as Home Depot of Lowe's. They can also be found online at specialty stores, such as www.organize.com, among others. Prices for laundry shelves vary depending on the kind that you purchase. At organize.com the prices range from $15 for a basic corner or washer/dryer shelf, to $175 for a deluxe wall laundry supply organizer. Everything depends on exactly what it is that you are looking for, but laundry shelves can be purchased for fairly reasonable prices if you look in the right places. Sometimes it is also helpful to wait for or look for sales advertisements, but it is not always necessary when remodeling your laundry room to look for the best deals because sometimes you may only be looking for a couple of things with a couple of specifics. Floor shelves are more expensive than wall shelves, and cheap metal shelves are cheaper than any that are made of wood. How much you are willing to pay and the overall look that you are trying to achieve should be the top factors in which laundry shelves you purchase.
Whether you are looking for more storage or added convenience, laundry shelves can give you both. Reasonably priced, easy to find and even easier to install, laundry shelves will be a great addition to your home. They can clear up even the messiest clutter and can look great while making you look great. Whether you are looking for a little or a lot of laundry organizations, laundry shelves will make every aspect of laundry day livable and easy to maintain. From stain remover to folded sheets, there is nothing that cannot be stored in your laundry room if you have the right shelving units. Even those things in the closet that cannot be stored easily anywhere else is sure to fit inside the laundry shelves that you are looking to purchase.
