Usable laundry cabinet





Materials: IKEA kitchen cabinet and Rev “A” shelf

Description: They needed good storage for all the cleaning and laundry equipment. we decided that least expensive and best quality cabinet was the IKEA cabinet. We installed a kitchen cabinet above a washer and dryer. we used a base cabinet that was 24″ deep so that we would have maximum storage.

The simple Rev “A” shelf system was installed per their instructions. You can buy this add on equipment at most any hardware store. This hack was very simple but increased the efficiency and ease of this cabinet. I wish IKEA had this kind of system but they don’t.

    Ikea has pull out shelves that, I believe, could be used the same way. Especially if you install 2 narrower cabinets intead of one wider cabinet.
    That’s an awesome idea! I wish I had more than a closet with a washer and dryer so I could do stuff like this.

    Great idea, I might do something similar.

    It’s just a shame the amount of toxic-non-ecological (very much earth unfriendly) products in you cabinets…

      Last time I checked, this website was about reviewing IKEA hacks, not critiquing what’s in people’s cabinets. Keep your hippy opinions on websites meant for them.

      Your hack is great but the huge amount of strong cleaner stuff is very ostentatious. I was also surprised and I am no hippy or whatever you think.
      Keep calm- a long it is not abusive everybody is free to comment what he or she wants!

      It’s not my hack, I’d like to say “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”, but the point is that you’re comments about cleaners have nothing to do with the hack itself. That’s like if someone’s ugly baby is in the background of the picture…you comment on the hack, not the ugly baby.

    It is quite rude to comment on what’s inside people’s closets. Unless if you have something to add about the hack, mind your own business.

      Maybe you should not post pictures of your open closet at the Internet to millions of people when you cannot stand a simple comment about cleaning supplies???

    • Mimi says:

      I am not the person who posted the hack, and your comment was far from being simple or polite. IKEA (a big box retailer)is a major contributor to global warming and its carbon footprint is getting bigger every year. So I’m sure that whatever you use from IKEA was made using “toxic-non-ecological (very much earth unfriendly) products”.

      First- surprise….there are more than one Anonymous here- so it was not my comment- but I really don’t understand why you overact like you did? People here often did comments on things they saw on pics besides the hack itself.
      And regarding your Ikea indoctrination: just one reason more to take every possibility to disburden our environment with responsible behavior!!

    I love how quickly this thread has devolved. When I get home, I am going to post a pic of my hacked cabinets full of S&M bondage gear, and you can all have your say.

    questo cafone che commenta è solo un invidioso

    Could you point me to the supplier of the sliding shelf system please?

  7. Anonymous says:

    sliding shelf looks similar to: RATIONELL Wire basket, silver color, Article Number : 300.359.08
    or on Home Depot site: Knape & Vogt Double-Tiered Wire Roll-Out Model: HSR15-R-FN | Store SKU: 1000663517

  8. The actual pullouts are from Rev A Shelf http://www.rev-a-shelf.com/

    We appreciate the praise for the hack idea.

    Thanks

  9. Nice work! For sure going to do something like this myself.

    I would move your awesome collection of effective cleaning products to the left side and your tried and true laundry detergents to the right, as you can’t access the washing machines detergent drawer while the left cabinet drawer is extended.
