Around 4,000 recent and aspiring homeowners participated in the National Association of Home Builders’ 2019 “What Home Buyers Really Want” report. The survey aims to determine features home buyers are most drawn to. Laundry rooms topped the list, with over 91 percent of respondents saying they’re an essential part of a house. Here’s what to know about a laundry room addition from one of your most trusted custom home builders, J Bryant Boyd Architect Design-Build.
You can place your laundry room on the first floor where most of the chores are done. That way, it may be able to share plumbing with the bathroom or kitchen. However, washing machines placed in cabinets need vented doors and clearance space for adequate ventilation.
As one of the leading design build firms in the area, you can rely on J Bryant Boyd Architect Design-Build for thoughtfully designed home additions. Our team will help you create a laundry room that works best for your home and lifestyle.
Planning Your Space
A laundry room doesn’t require as much space. Placing elements in close proximity is key to an efficient laundry room. Stack appliances or put them beside each other so you can easily transfer wet clothes from the washer to the dryer. They should be placed directly across from utility hookups.
Storage is Key
It’s ideal to store laundry supplies in closed cabinets or open shelving above or next to appliances. Have sufficient space for laundry baskets so they stay out of the way but within remain within reach. A counter or a table is helpful for organizing and folding clothes. Consider adding a counter on top of machines if they are placed side by side.
