Plan a Laundry Room in the Optimal Location in Your Home

You may have never thought about the placement of your home's laundry room. Is it in the basement? In the mud room? Home design has traditionally relegated the laundry room to these two locations, but many homeowners have discovered the benefits of relocating this essential space.

Relocating the laundry room is easily integrated into a renovation project. Consider moving your laundry room:

  • Upstairs: Moving the laundry room to the second floor eliminates hauling dirty laundry throughout the house to wash it. The closer proximity to bedrooms helps speed up the laundry process and increases your efficiency.
  • Near the action: Moving the laundry room near the action allows you to keep an eye on your children and monitor family activities. This placement often relies on having it in a mud room or having substantial cabinetry to hide the laundry room from view.
  • Two locations: One of the newest trends is to construct two smaller laundry rooms on opposite sides of the house. A laundry room upstairs can be dedicated to nearby bedrooms, and a downstairs laundry room is perfect for a 1st floor master suite or just off the kitchen.
