When organized properly, laundry rooms can provide ample storage for much more than detergent. Cabinets built the proper depth and installed above a top load washer as shown, provide an easy way to load soap into the machine. Open the door, slide the detergent part way out, release detergent into machine, and then slide back into cabinet. No heavy clumsy lifting. We always provide a hanging area for clothes to either drip dry or be hung as they exit the dryer. With proper design and planning, a laundry room can increase the homes storage capacity.
