Just outside of Lucy’s room there are two nooks on either side of the doorway. After some deliberation in the initial brainstorming process, we decided that this was a good place to put our washer and dryer to create a small laundry area. This 2nd floor location won out because we wanted the washer and dryer to be as accessible as possible. We can now do laundry while being around the rest of the family, while Lucy takes a bath, first thing in the morning, or right before bed. Because of this convenience, the laundry gets done much faster!
The location of the laundry has been convenient, but we haven’t done anything to the space since the day we moved in. (Except we normally have the dryer vent connected!)
