Should I combine my pantry and laundry? Help!
I desperately need some help with my pantry and laundry room plans. In the construction drawings, my pantry is 4 ft wide and 9 ft long. My laundry room is 9ftx10ft. I'd like to fit an upright freezer in my pantry. Here's the original plan:
They are going to start framing the main level tomorrow. It occurred to me today as I walked through the house that maybe I should omit the wall dividing the laundry and pantry. Here's an idea of what I think that would look like:
So, this is what I don't know:
1. Is this a good idea?
2. Where should I put my W/D? Stack them along wall A? Under the counter along wall B? I really don't know.
3. Is the pocket door a good idea? In a good location?
4. Am I trying to squish too much cabinetry into this room?
5. Should I omit, move, or change the size of any windows?
See, I need help! haha
Here's our current progress. The closest corner is where the laundry will be. (fwiw, I will have a second laundry in the basement)
