Opt for custom-made storage 

One of the easiest ways to save room is built-in storage. Consult with a carpenter and check if he can customize a pull-out ironing drawer for you. You can simply close it when not in use, plus, it helps you save on floor space, too.

Use bright-colored iron covers

Using frazzled sheets to protect your planstahan only makes it more of an eyesore. Replace your old covers with printed pieces in warm shades to breathe life into your laundry area.

Hang it up

For small spaces, maximizing vertical storage is always a good idea. Attach metal hooks that are sturdy enough to hold a heavy-duty ironing board. You can also add a small floating shelf to keep all your ironing tools in one place.
