Upstairs bathroom/laundry layout?
This is our most recent upstairs layout. Would love some thoughts! (I know the stairs say "up". Sorry, it's just my software since I didn't lay in the entire house plan.)
We have 5 kids, 4 of which are girls. May have more but don't know. There will be another laundry downstairs...probably in the master bath/closet area. Kids are currently ages 8yo boy and girls 10,6,4,2.
Things I am unsure of:
1. Should laundry room just have one single door? If so, where? If it's from the hall then you can see it from the front door.
2. Should the girl's bathroom (bigger one) have a hall entry instead of coming in from the bedroom? Not sure if we would lose counter space by doing that.
3. Unsure of how to make the doors into the girl's bedrooms. I have played around with one single pocket door from the hall, making it a very large bedroom with closets in the middle. Or just having separate doors, which makes the bath entry weird if it's in one bedroom and not the other.
4. Should the boy bathroom have a door to the sink area? If so, where?
Any other thoughts on how to make this more efficient? The exterior size is what it is. Can't get bigger. ;) The stairs have to stay where they are. Otherwise it's pretty open to change as needed.
