Because I’m going to be showing you some seriously amazing ideas for cleaning closet organization that you’ll seriously fall in love with.
And don’t worry, I will share cleaning closet ideas of different sizes. And I know not everyone has big closets or even a designated closet for cleaning supplies, so I will also share alternative ideas for those of you who are like me and don’t have a lot of storage space.
I have the tiniest cleaning closet, seriously it is tiny! But having it organized seriously makes such a big difference in how much I can actually fit in it. So no matter how big or small your cleaning closet is, you can still create a beautiful, organized, and functional cleaning closet/space.
This post is all about cleaning closet organization.
The Best Ideas for Cleaning closet organization
1. Baskets and shelves
If you have a coat closet in your home that is not really being used, you can totally covert it into a cleaning closet storage. I think this is a way more functional way to use a closet. You can always keep coats in your regular bedroom closets, right?
You can use a variety of baskets and containers to organize and maximize the space. And if your closet doesn’t have shelves, you can either build some or just get something like these from Amazon. They are not “built-in” but still serve the same purpose.
Basket Tip: You can find very affordable baskets of all kinds at places like Home Goods, TJ Max, Ross. I usually check these stores out first when I am going to need several baskets, as they are much cheaper.
2. pegboard And wall hooks
How genius is this? A pegboard on the back wall of your cleaning closet and wall hooks would add so much storage space. Not only that but you can recreate this idea on any wall or even behind any door.
3. coat closet/cleaning closet
Okay, so this is genius, right? Earlier I showed an example for transforming a coat closet into a cleaning closet storage. But if getting rid of your coat closet entirely is not realistic for your home, what about making it both a cleaning closet and a coat closet?
Use a door organizer like this one from Amazon and some cute baskets and get all your cleaning supplies organized on the door itself and use the baskets for backstock items! You could even tuck the vacuums more to the corners so they aren’t the first thing you see when you open the door.
4. SMALL Cleaning closet
If you have a limited space to dedicate to cleaning supplies, this is a great idea here. You can recreate this space in one of your kitchen cabinets, under the kitchen sink, or if you have a laundry room, you can use a cabinet in there too.
This is pretty similar to the size of my cleaning closet storage, except mine is in the hallway. I usually only keep two of everything, and the space is more than enough.
And you can easily customize and adjust this to fit your needs. If your space is bigger or smaller, you can use more or fewer containers.
TIP: If you have very little storage like me, try to only have in stock one backup of each cleaning supply you use, this will save you a lot of space! And don’t worry about running out having the one backup ensures you don’t run out. Because once you use the second one, you know it’s time to go buy again soon.
5. Hanging Door Storage
Here is another idea for using the back or front of a door for adding more storage space.
You can use the back of your garage door, entry closet, laundry room closet, etc, and add one of these White Elfa Utility Pantry Over the Door Rack or something similar. It comes with a certain amount of baskets, but you can add more if you need.
Using the back of the door for extra storage is seriously one of the best tips for anyone looking to add a little more storage to their home.
6. Cleaning closet organization Shelves
Wall shelves are another great way to create storage. And if you don’t have space inside your home to store cleaning supplies, adding shelves to an empty wall is definitely a great option. You can do this in your garage, laundry room, etc.
Depending on how many shelves you can fit, you can use the top shelves for backstock cleaning supplies and the lower shelves for supplies used daily. You can even create multiple cleaning caddy’s as shown in this example. So that you can have quick and easy access to your cleaning supplies based on what you’re cleaning that day, etc.
7.Cleaning rolling cart
Okay, so here is a super clever idea for a cleaning closet alternative if you don’t have a designated cleaning closet, or you just don’t have space anywhere else in your home to use for cleaning supply storage, you’re going to love this idea!
You can use a cleaning caddy and keep that on the top tier for your daily cleaning supplies. Keeping them on the caddy would make it super easy to grab and go. And the two bottom tiers can be used for all your backstock cleaning supplies. You could even roll the cart around with you as you clean! This is seriously perfect!
Here is another rolling cart from IKEA. If you have an IKEA nearby, that’s a cheaper option It’s under $30! I have had mine for years and it’s still basically like new.
