Spring Clean - 10 laundry room essentials


The arrival of spring has prompted me to clear out my laundry room and attempt to embrace the art of organisation, so for Design Hunter's ideabook on Houzz this months I've picked out some laundry room essentials to add a more style conscious spin to this often neglected area of the home.

Here are a few of them:

Above: This 'tailor's roll' sewing kit from Merchant and Mills is made of oilskin and contains everything you need for quick repairs and alterations - needles, pins, a tape measure and a pair of scissors.


Items with an industrial or utilitarian aesthetic work particularly well in functional spaces like the utility room. Add an industrial vibe with this stylishly practical iron basket on wheels from Rose and Grey.


Copper is still a huge interiors trend at the moment. I'm a big fan of Danish brand Hay and love the elegant minimalism of these simple copper coat hangers.


Made from natural pumice, this stone will lift pilling away from the surface of knitted fabrics, helping extend the life of your favorite sweaters. Available from Labour and Wait.


I love the anthropomorphic charm of these traditional wooden dolly pegs.


This French laundry soap from Cachette is made from vegetable oils, with no perfumes, phosphates or synthetics ingredients, so it will be kind to our rivers as well as to delicate clothes made of silk, wool or lace.


Channel your inner 1950s domestic goddess while doing the household chores with this mid-century inspired ash wood ironing board from West Elm.


Keep dirty laundry tidied away with this drawstring cotton laundry bag from John Lewis. Hang it up on the back of the door or on a hook in the bathroom.


Smart, practical storage for your washing powder tablets from Garden Trading.


The perfect space-saving solution for your laundry room, Devol’s contemporary take on the traditional laundry maid comes in lacquered ash and can be adjusted to the required height using a jute cord pulley system. Available from Not on the High Street.
