Smart and Stylish Laundry Storage for Dorms
Heading off to college gives you your first real taste of adulthood - and all of the freedom and responsibility that comes with it. In your dorm room, if you don't get your laundry done, no one else will do it for you. Keep your clothing well-organized with the smart laundry storage options from Pottery Barn Teen. With various bags, bins and baskets to choose from, it's easy to find the perfect style to suit your space.
Dorm Laundry Bags
Maximizing your living space with multi-use products is very important in small dorm rooms. Dorm laundry bags can not only be used to store dirty laundry between washes but also to transport your clothing from your room to the washing machines. No need for a big, bulky laundry hamper or laundry bin - these bags fold up small when not in use and hold plenty of clothing at full capacity. Since they're made of fabric, they can be thrown into any available space in the closet for storage with no fear of damage. The handy straps make them easy to carry and extra features like zippers or drawstring closures keep your laundry from spilling out while in transit. Some even come with backpack-style straps, allowing you to carry your clothing to and from the laundry room on your back.
While most of these fabric bags are unable to stand on their own, others include rods which help them to function as a standard laundry hamper. Use the rods to create a pop-up hamper or remove them for flat storage. Other bags include useful features like an exterior pocket for storing delicate clothing items, your laundry card or any other small items. Since these clothing bags are available in several fabric colors and patterns, you can coordinate them with other materials around the room, like your bedspread or dorm curtains.
Dorm Storage Bins and Baskets
You can never have too many storage bins in a room, especially a dorm room, where space is often limited. Dorm storage baskets and bins are available in a wide variety of sizes to use for laundry storage. Larger bins with handles make great laundry hampers for dirty clothing. If you don't have enough room to keep the hamper in your closet, choose a hamper with a matching lid to keep your clothing out of sight when guests are over. With many attractive woven options to choose from, these hampers are pretty enough to blend in with your other dorm decor.
Smaller dorm storage bins can also be used to organize clean clothing in a college dorm. Stack a few bins with labels in your closet to store clothing that is not worn often, use an underbed storage bin to hold extra dorm sheets and pillowcases and fill dresser drawers with small baskets to keep socks and undergarments separated and easy to find. With a solid plan in place to keep clean clothes wrinkle-free and set apart from dirty ones, you'll never have to wash laundry more often than is necessary.
While doing your laundry may not be the most exciting way to spend your time, the great laundry bags, baskets and bins from Pottery Barn Teen can make the task much simpler. Shop the wide selection of practical and pretty laundry storage solutions now to find the best fit for your college dorm.
