Have you ever seen a beautiful laundry room that belongs to an interior designer or a celebrity and thought the design wasn't obtainable? If so, you may want to think again. No matter what size, shape, or limitations you currently face, it's always possible to create the laundry room of your dreams. To achieve this, Amba Heated Towel Racks says to begin by deciding what features are most important to you, such as a sink, a drying rack, or a flat surface to fold clothes. Then, you can create a plan of action and start designing.

Once you've completed the above steps, you'll need to purchase hampers, storage containers, and other products to help you keep the room organized. While these will be an investment, they don't have to cost a fortune. Below are five top-rated products sold at Target that could help you keep your laundry room in order, and each cost under $25. 

Oatmeal hamper

When organizing your laundry room, you should first purchase a hamper to keep your dirty clothes contained between washes. Target sells an oatmeal-colored felt hamper that's part of their Brightroom collection for $13 when purchased online. This soft and flexible hamper is made out of recycled polyester. Out of 146 ratings, it received 4.7 stars, and everyone who rated it would recommend it to someone else. One person said it looks "so clean and pretty in the bedroom. Easily blends into decor without standing out too much." Along with the minimalistic appearance, others loved that it was lightweight, sturdy, and a great price. However, because it's made of felt, it may warp over time.

Felt furniture and accessories always provide a modern and sleek look, per Homedit. They could be used anywhere in the home; For instance, you could utilize felt cushions in the living room, a knife holder in the kitchen, and a basket for wood next to the fireplace. Because the felt is exceptionally plush, it won't damage the walls like hard plastic or metal could. Further, felt is also extremely light and easy to move around.

Hamper with liner

However, maybe you'd rather carry your dirty clothes in a bag. If so, you could purchase a hamper with a liner, such as Target's Room Essentials gray and white model, which costs $10 online. Out of 716 ratings, this hamper received 4.6 stars, and 85% of reviewers would recommend it to a friend. While some complained about the fabric or handles easily ripping, an admirer said it holds the perfect amount of laundry for a large load. Another reviewer said, "the sturdy frame combined with the washable fabric is perfect for laundry."

Of course, this is one of the most significant benefits of a laundry liner: It can be washed, which will keep your clothes cleaner. According to Chandigarh Metro, they are also great to use when traveling, as they can fit inside a suitcase. Further, liners are lightweight and easy to transport, and they can be folded and stored away when not in use.

Magnetic shelf

Storage space is essential to keeping a laundry room organized; you could use open shelving or closed cabinets. Simple Life of a Lady says that open storage is helpful because you'll quickly see what you need, allowing you to complete your chores faster and more efficiently. 

However, perhaps you have run out of space or have a tiny laundry room that can't accommodate shelves or cabinets. If so, you could try out Target's magnetic shelf by Brightroom, which retails for $25 when purchased online. This product has two metal shelves and a removable wooden towel holder. With 49 ratings, it received 4.8 stars, and everyone who rated it would recommend it. One person said, "This is amazing! Love it so much I bought a second." Many praised this shelf for being extra sturdy and staying up without budging. However, one person complained about it falling off when the dryer was used.

Glass decanting jars

Another way to create an organized and aesthetically pleasing laundry room is by decanting products into glass jars. For instance, you could place tide pods or laundry detergent beads with a scoop inside a glass jar on a shelf or inside a cabinet. Elegant Simplicity says that, while moving your products into containers requires effort, it's worth it, as you'll be able to remove bulky packaging from your laundry room. Further, you'll also be able to see the products inside the jars, quickly seeing when you need to purchase more of a product.

Target sells a 64-ounce glass jar from their Threshold line for $6 online. With 773 ratings, this jar received 4.8 stars, and 93% of people would recommend it to someone else. One person wrote, "Love this! Purchased in different sizes and they're all amazing. They are perfect for my laundry room." Further, others said that, even after dropping the jars multiple times, they didn't break, proving they are highly durable. The only complaints were that the rim may be sharp and that the lid doesn't have a seal, so it's not ideal for things that could spoil. If you need a bigger size, they also offer one that holds 128 ounces for $10 and a 256-ounce jar for $14.

Decorative storage basket

However, some items cannot easily be decanted into jars, such as dryer sheets or liquid items. You could purchase containers explicitly made for these products to decant them or conceal them in decorative bins. According to The Little Details, storage bins could also be used to hold items like steamers, irons, missing socks, or lint from the dryer. Further, to make them as useful as possible, you could add labels to the outside.

Target sells Room Essentials polypropylene baskets with a decorative Y-weave design in many colors and sizes. Their medium size costs $6 online; other options include a mini for $3, a small for $4, a half medium for $5, a large cube for $7, and an extra large for $8. The shades are mostly neutral, including translucent, gray, white, and black, but you could also add a pop of color with blue. The medium-sized bin received 4.8 stars with 778 reviews, and 98% of reviewers would recommend it. A reviewer said, "I have a bunch of these around the house! Storage bins can get so expensive when you want to organize a closet and these are [of] great quality and a great price. I've been getting them for a couple years! Still holding up strong too." Those who gave it a negative review received damaged bins from Target in the mail.
