Utility Closet Storage Options You Wish Knew Sooner

By Alexa Erickson

When all of the items in your utility closet are neatly organized, you won’t believe how much space you have.

Over-the-Door Organizer

This multi-use storage solution is great for holding smaller items in your utility closet. The five-tier design hangs over the door, so you can preserve floor space for larger items. It also features adjustable shelving to accommodate different-sized items.

Your Utility Closet is Begging for TLC

The utility closet is an often-overlooked organizing opportunity. However, given the variety of functions the items in it serve in your home, such as mopping, sweeping, vacuuming, and ironing, it stands to reason that you’d want to provide them with proper storage that’s crisp and clean.

Rather than rummaging through your utility closet every time you need something, try one of the 12 storage solutions we’ve listed here. You won’t believe how easy it is to find everything, and how nice all of your hardworking products will look when they are neatly arranged on shelves, racks, hooks, and more.

Mop and Broom Holder

If your utility closet needs nothing more than a simple place to store your mop and broom, this holder has your name on it. The 4-inch depth keeps the damp mop away from the wall, so you can stop it from rotting and keep your walls clear of potential water damage.

Tower Organizer

This tower organizer is the “glow up” your utility closet deserves. The design allows you to easily adjust two of the five shelves to accommodate items of varying sizes. Free up the ground by storing your broom, mop and dustpan on the five-peg rack. 

Ironing Organizer

Storing ironing supplies can take up a lot of space. This organizer offers such items a place to neatly reside in your utility closet. The ironing organizer features two storage hooks for standard boards, along with a steel wire basket for your iron.

Rolling Rack for Cleaning Tools

This rack is great for easily maneuvering items from your utility closet to different parts of the home. The cart can hold up to 10 large tools and 12 small tools, like a vacuum cleaner, broom, dustpan and more, so you can keep everything organized without having to pull them individually out of the closet, creating more work later.

Tension Rod Shelves

This adjustable storage shelf rack is great for utilizing empty wall space. The easy-to-install design requires no tools, so you don’t have to worry about damaging the walls in your utility closet. Cleaning supplies like spray bottles, boxes of sponges, gloves, and more are ideal for storing on the shelves. 

Pull-Out Drawers

These closet baskets allow you to easily access items while keeping them organized. The heavy gauge wire construction and full-extension ball-bearing system allows you to easily open and close the drawers. Meanwhile, the sleek design offers a stylish attribute to your utility closet. 

Hardware Organizer

Hardware thrown in a junk drawer takes up space and is easy to misplace. Instead, add storage for such items to your utility closet with this organizer. It can be stacked or mounted on the wall and features eight small and four large dividable drawers.

Easy-to-Install Lighting

If storage shelves, drawers, or just the utility closet itself need better lighting, add more with this easy-to-install option. This two-pack features rechargeable, dimmable LED lights, and the motion sensor ensures all your items are within sight as soon as you open the door or drawers.

Stylish Bins

Add a hint of style to your utility closet with these contemporary storage bins. Store items like rags, towels, blankets and more in the Nordic baskets. The optional bamboo lids allow you to stack your baskets neatly. To easily pinpoint what’s in each bin, use a dry erase marker to label them, wiping off and re-labeling when needed.

Bag Dispenser

Don’t let bulky bag boxes take up unnecessary space in your utility closet. Instead, use this innovative bag dispenser. Simply stack your bags within the dispenser, and quickly pull them out when needed.
