If you live in a small space, there is nothing that messes up the zen of your perfectly organised home like laundry day. Out comes the wire drying rack and you and your sopping wet clothes have to share space for the next 12 hours. If you live with roommates, the chances are that clothes dryer is a pretty permanent fixture in your living room. Without the luxury of a separate laundry room, what is a small space dweller to do? It's time to suspend from the ceiling.

Ceiling mounted drying racks are a total game changer for those short on space. Suspended from the ceiling using a pulley system, you can raise your laundry out of sight, and you’ll barely notice it’s there. The added benefit of faster drying times means it’s a budget and eco-friendly option to traditional drying machines.

Here are some of our favourites for every style and budget
