When you are building your own custom house there are a lot of decisions you have to make. One of the most important of these is the layout of the rooms in your house.
While there is a lot to consider when it comes to the flow of a home’s layout, we are going to focus on a specific, important room right now: The laundry room.
One of the most important and functional places in your home, the laundry room must be in a convenient place, but one that is not too close to the populated living areas as to not make noise an issue.
Here are some things to consider when planning where to put your laundry room in a custom home!
Laundry Questions to Answer
Convenience: Who will be doing the laundry? How often? When will it be done? All of these are questions that will impact the placement of the laundry room. For the most part, the laundry room should be one of the most easily accessed spaces in your home.
The Feel: You spend a lot of time designing and thinking about a lot of other rooms in your home, but often time put very little thought into the laundry room. But, take time to think of what kind of environment you want for your laundry space: A purely functional room? A creative space? Extra storage?
The Size: How much space do you need for your laundry room? Depending on how you plan on using your laundry room (creative space vs. pure function), as well as the size of the appliances you plan on purchasing, you may need a larger space, or you may be able to get away with little more than an exuberant closet.
