Despite your efforts to clad your clan in fabrics that won't wrinkle, there's inevitably some laundry day ironing that needs to get done. So naturally, your laundry room is the ideal place to stow and operate your ironing board. If you're dealing with a small space, get a wall-mounted rack that you can fold up when it's not in use. Even if you don't do all that much ironing, it's not a bad idea to have a portable, counter top-size board on hand that stows in the corner. If you prefer to iron in front of the TV to keep you occupied during this dull task, consider making room for a small TV in your laundry room.
