I've been wanting a bigger and better place than beneath my kitchen sink to store my cleaning and laundry supplies. And my laundry room was a good choice for a new storage cabinet because I have plenty of space above my washer and dryer as well as a couple of feet on the side of my washer. I didn't want an unattractive plastic or metal storage cabinet because my laundry room is on the first floor and it doubles as a mud room, however, I didn't want an expensive storage cabinet either. Nor did I want a wood-grain type of cabinet because my washer and dryer are white, and an oak cabinet would look ridiculous next to my washer and dryer. So I went to Lowe's to see what they had.

I found the ClosetMaid Stackable 2 Door Organizercabinet for $35, and this cabinet was just perfect for my needs: exactly the right width and height for the space between the washer and the wall, white laminate wood and not too expensive. The cabinet only took me an hour to assemble with a Philips head screwdriver and a hammer, and that included a little fussing with the magnetic latches to make the doors hang flush and plumb with each other when they're closed. When I was ready to put the shelves in, I put the laundry soap on the bottom shelf to adjust where the first shelf should go, then I put the 409 bottle on the first shelf to adjust where the second shelf should go. But that second shelf isn't coming out of that cabinet easily because there's no way to tilt the board up high enough without hitting the supports or the doors; I would have to remove the shelf supports to remove the second shelf. After a bottle of laundry soap and a bottle of 409, there was only enough height room left in that cabinet for a box of Kleenex, but I actually needed someplace to store those, too, so it all worked out.

The ClosetMaid 2 Door Organizer cabinet also comes in cherry and alder wood grain colors, and the cabinet is designed to be a part of a mix and match set of different closet organizer pieces such as drawers and shoe racks. But I like that this cabinet is stackable. If I decide that I want more storage space in my laundry room, I can buy another unit just like this one to make a reasonably attractive, reasonably priced, tall standing cabinet unit.
