Five Indoor Drying Solutions Perfect for Small Spaces

Never get caught with wet laundry in the cold again – these indoor drying solutions make it easy to dry clothes when it’s too cold or wet to hang them outside, without having to invest in a dryer!

The forecast says days of rain, but the laundry is piling up … it’s the age-old problem hitting households across the country throughout the year. Luckily, there are a number of easy ways to solve this issue once and for all – and they’re all in your laundry!

Instead of investing in a bulky and expensive dryer, consider introducing design features that not only save space, but are better for the environment. We’ve rounded up five of our favourites – all of which are simple and cost-effective to install and won’t take up any extra space. In fact, every single one will sit within your current laundry set up!

Add a rod above the sink

While a sink is an important part of any laundry, the space above it is often under-utilised. Take full advantage of this by installing a rod above your sink. When it comes time to dry clothing – especially hand-washed items that might still be dripping – hang your piece of clothing over the sink for an easy drying method.

Install a heated towel rail

You may already have a heated towel rail in your bathroom, but have you thought about installing one in your laundry? They are a great way to dry and warm not only towels, but any type of clothing! As they sit against a wall, they are a great solution for smaller spaces with lots of under-used wall area.

Make a drying drawer

Transform one of your cluttered laundry drawers into a versatile drying drawer. This innovative design feature involves installing a number of rods that are hidden behind a drawer front. When not in use, it looks like a normal drawer, but when you need to hang damp clothes, simply pull the drawer out and drape clothing over each rod.

Try a drying cabinet

Pull down to hang freshly ironed shirts or another load of washing on your newly improved drying cabinet. Once you’re done, they’re folded back up again, taking up no space and leaving you to get on with your next laundry task!

Attach a hook to the back of the door

A dripping raincoat can cause all types of mess in a home – avoid it all with designated hooks in your laundry for hanging them out to dry. A great place for them is on the back of your laundry door, as this is often unused space just calling out to be utilised! You can use an over-door rack, 3M hooks or screw hooks – you may want to use two per coat to ensure it dries quickly!
