Here’s a simple solution to organizing the dirty laundry in your laundry room. Construct a custom shelf unit sized to hold three to five laundry hampers so clothes can be sorted upon arrival in the laundry room. Ours is made from 1/2″ plywood and three shelves so five hampers can be stored (one on each shelf, one on the floor below and one on top). The shelves can be secured with dados (in the side supports as we did) or with 1×2 cleats attached to the sidewalls.
