Small Bedroom Laundry Storage Benches

We have a small master bedroom and one of our biggest storage issues was where to put the laundry baskets. In recent years, they have simply been placed, willy-nilly, at the foot of our bed like this:

GAH! So Ugly!

And it’s driving me crazy.

Wayfair recently challenged me to find a smart storage solution for a room in my house and with my nasty laundry basket problem in mind, I went looking on their site for some kind of cute laundry sorter.

I was so excited when I found some cute benches for the laundry basket. I measured and realized that three benches placed side by side would fit perfectly at the foot of our bed.

Here is my storage solution:

Isn’t that much better than mismatched laundry baskets overflowing with dirty clothes?

I love the fact that my laundry is now hidden and that there are three baskets so I can immediately divide the laundry into whites, darks and towels. Each cabinet has a removable fabric basket that lifts up so you can easily take them to the laundry room.

It’s also great to have a place to sit while we put on our shoes or whatever. It was a bonus that I didn’t realize I’d like as much as I do.

The baskets took some assembly, but I was able to build them unaided and it didn’t take long. If you’ve built furniture before, it’s a pretty standard construction of cam locks and some screws. The only tool you need is a screwdriver.

I am so happy that I have finally found a solution for this problematic area of ​​our home. Before, I was literally airing my dirty laundry to everyone (ah!) and is now neatly stowed away. If you also have a small bedroom, Wayfair has different styles and sizes of laundry cabinets available, so I’m sure you can find the perfect fit for your space.

Do you like this idea? Pin it so you don’t forget it!
