A pull-out ironing board

1.  A pull-out ironing board saves valuable floor space – Pull it out when you need it, slide it back into the drawer when you’re done. This Kraftmaid version comes as an optional kit with the cabinetry. Rockler and Rev-a-Shelf offer a fold-away board that can be retrofitted into an existing drawer.

2.  Drawer that folds out into an ironing board – Talk about your most efficient use of space in a laundry room.   There’s a pair of stacked Samsung front loaders, a large counter space to fold clothes, plenty of cabinet space, and a valet rod for clothes hangers within immediate reach of the dryer.

  1. This made me smile, as my parents kitchen back in the 70’s had a pull out drawer ironing board, and I hadn’t seen one since!

    My current laundy room / utility room is a narrow corridor between the kitchen and back door, and no room for an ironing board at all 🙁
