I too designed storage space into my laundry for these items. It really helps. I also use storage containers like pull out drawers for lighter things on higher shelves for easy access. I used shoe boxes to make slide out drawers under my laundry trough, to sort items and make room for some items that are necessary but not often used! I also purchased some plastic office storage drawers for items like shoe laces, batteries, glue, a hole punch, pliers and more. I also keep the ingredients for winter chicken mash in tall plastic containers in my laundry refilling from the shed as necessary. My dog has his own drawer for dry pet food, coats and other bits and pieces and I have a section for pet worming medications and other such items, like kitty litter.

I have seen a cupboard made in the dining and living area for the vacuum with an electrical socket built in to the cupboard. very good for spaces that need a vac often.

otherwise a dyson vac is a great cleaner and space saver.
