To create laundry room storage, the first thing you need to do is remove anything that isn’t laundry related. For some clients, we have kept tools, batteries, and cleaning supplies in the laundry room because that is where they had the most space. Regardless of what thins you consider “laundry items”, just group them all together to create an organizational system. But there are some daily laundry items that can easily be contained to create extra storage in your laundry room.
1. Laundry Pods
Storing the laundry pods into a container helps create extra space in your laundry room. The reason being is that nothing will stack on top of the pods, making it easy for you to actually do your laundry. We love using the glass jars that are found in the kitchen section of The Container Store for laundry room storage. By storing the laundry pods, powder detergent, and other powder cleaning agents, you are able to clear the space by reducing visual clutter, and have easy access to all the laundry items you need as they are contained in the jars with glass lids.
Add a label to the jar or leave them clear to create a streamlined look in your laundry room.
2. Dryer Balls
I don’t love to store my dryer balls in the dryer when we aren’t using them, so I recommend storing them in a glass jar. Beside the obvious that they look pretty, they are contained so they won’t roll away or get lost! I store my dryer balls next to my essential oils that I use when some of the clothing needs a little refresh!
3. Garment Bags
Typically, I keep the garment bags in the laundry baskets to collect socks and underwear. But I always end up having extra. To create laundry room storage, I keep the garment bags in glass jars on a baker’s rack in my laundry room. The baker’s rack is the perfect size for our laundry room and the glass jars look perfect on the shelves. By storing all my laundry items in glass jars, I have created insanely easy ways to create laundry room storage that is both easy and beautiful!

4 Chic Ways to Use Rustic Brickwork
Regular news updates from Adtwixt
Brickwork is a common texture that’s used in a variety of trends. It’s useful for imparting a classic or bucolic vibe into a space. As a result, you most typically see it in rustic or country styles. But rustic brickwork has become a larger part of chic trends through the years. Styles like industrial chic make use of brickwork, as do rustic chic styles.
Outside of large-scale trends, there are also several subtle, stylish ways to use brick. Read on to learn how to work with rustic brickwork in a variety of modern spaces.

Industrial Style Rustic Brickwork
As mentioned above, rustic brickwork is common in industrial spaces. The modern industrial space in the photo above uses it to great effect. The red texture of the brick walls adds some warmth against the concrete. Modern spaces also tend to use high-contrast materials together, so if you want to create contrast using texture, brick is a good element to use in your design.
This image above also shows how brick can work in a minimalistic and modern space. Brick does a wonderful job of imparting texture to a space where elements like wall hangings and knickknacks aren’t used. It makes up for the lack of those items that would normally give texture.

Rustic Chic Brick
Rustic chic is another style that makes excellent use of brickwork in the home. An example is the rustic chic living room space in the photo above. The textured brickwork imparts an instant rustic sensibility. It goes well with other subtle rustic elements, like the textured woven rug.
This photo shows how well brick can work with a more modern sensibility in the rest of the room. The room has the crisp, light coloring common in modern spaces. And that light coloring is reflected well in the brick itself and the light grout. It all combines well to be overwhelmingly contemporary.

Another great use for brick is to use it as an accent wall. In the photo above, the distressed, choppy texture to the brick gives an eye-grabbing rustic look. It shows how you can get a rustic feel in a modern space by simply adding brick to a single wall.
In fact, the rustic brickwork accent wall adds contrast and visual interest to the space. The rest of the space is thoroughly modern, with the minimalistic side tables, stark black headboard and white walls, while the exposed bulb gives a slight industrial vibe. When combined, the elements in this room show just how well brick fits into a rustic chic space.

A current hallmark of modern spaces is to get creative with conflicting textures. And the space in the photo above got the principle right.
The brick in the backsplash sets a solid tone of strong texture. Meanwhile, marbling on the countertop adds even more texture against still more textured wood. It goes to show how three textures can create tons of visual interest in just about any space. This would be a great style for artsy spaces where high contrast is the central theme.
