If there's one place that's a clutter magnet in most homes, it's the laundry area. Even if you have a room dedicated to the task of washing, drying and folding, other household items seem to have a way of migrating there. The solution? Ingenious and inexpensive storage, thanks to a handy bank of kitchen cabinets.

If your laundry room, or laundry area, has room for improvement, consider installing upper and lower kitchen cabinets. Leaving the doors on will hide various and sundry items, such as laundry detergent, from view -- and you could attach a corkboard or refinish them with chalkboard paint to create a space for notes and lists. Or you could remove the doors for a contemporary storage option and add baskets to keep smaller items, such as fabric softener sheets, clothespins or mate-less socks in check [source: Better Homes and Gardens].
