laundry/mud room help
This is my first post here on gw. We are about to start a remodel and I'm slowly working out the details on each room. Our current plans have a mud room/laundry room that is 5'6" by 12'6". A door on both the 5'6" walls that take you from the garage to the kitchen. This leaves the washer/dryer on the 12'6" wall along with a bench for taking off shoes, storing shoes and a broom closet. We have a front loading washer/dryer and I'm worried that I won't have enough room to pull out the laundry. How much space do you need between the wall and the washer/dryer? Thanks so much for your help.
