Ironing board storage solutions

The birth and rise of the ironing board, like so many products, has an interesting backstory. But for a person like me who’s main focus is an organized and clutter-free home, my attention is more interested in a storage solution that hides these bulky – yet much needed – objects the best way possible.

If you have the means and money, the cabinet or drawer style board organizers are very cool and appealing. For the more budget minded crowd, the very familiar wall-mount bracket organizers can be very effective, while storing your iron too.

Wall-Mount Ironing Hanger Organizer

These organizers can be very economical and readily available at most local retail stores, including hardware stores. They attach with wall anchors, which may be included.

When wanting a full-size ironing board, these hangers may be your best option for storage, compared to the built-in units, which have a smaller board.

Brands Include: Brabantia, Spectrum Basket, Sunbeam, Rayen

Over-the-Door Ironing Organizers and Holders

Adding iron and ironing board storage doesn’t get any easier than this. No tools required! Plus, there is no permanent modifications to your walls.

The downside? I don’t like the over-the-door hanger showing on the opposite side of the door.

Brands Include: ClosetMaid, Household Essentials Over-the-Door Board, Polder, Spectrum, Rayen (wall-mount model comes with over-the-door hooks)

Built-in and Wall Ironing Cabinets

Get a full functioning ironing center that either mounts to the surface of your wall, or is recessed into the wall for a slimmer and cleaner look.

Designs vary, which may include a ironing board storage cabinet only, or have the ability to store an ironing board, iron, ironing accessories, along with a power strip to have close proximity power outlets for user-friendliness. Note: The power strip will need to be properly wired to a nearby outlet or junction box.

Brands Include: Hide-Away, Household Essentials StowAway® In-Wall Ironing Board, IRON-A-WAY

Drawer Ironing Board Storage

Have the convenience of an ironing board stored right in the space of your lower laundry or bath cabinet drawer.

The mid-size ironing board measures roughly 37-38″ long, but folds in the middle, allowing it to store inside a common cabinet depth.

Brands Include: Asko HiddenHelper™ Ironing Board HI115, Häfele, Rev-A-Shelf, Vauth-Sagel

Creative Ironing Organizers and Holders

If none of the above products are an ideal solution, there are several organizer hooks, hardware, and furniture that can be used to hang an ironing board as well as store your iron and the needed laundry accessories.

Example 1
Mounting 2 individual coat hooks can work as an ironing board holder. Style and finish is abundant to meet any preference.

If wanting storage for the iron, bottles, etc., purchase a shelf and coat rack combination. Again these can be found in several styles and finishes.
