Laundry Room Counter Space??
We are thinking of making an extra small bedroom into an indoor laundry. I have pretty much decided I will have to do it galley style due to the placement of the window which I don't want to move and the size of my front load monsters. I will have a small sink on the same wall as the W&D.
All the sites I go to for design talk about making sure you have plenty of counter space. We don't have a basement and this house lacks storage for out of season items so personally I was thinking of doing a wall of mostly floor to ceiling storage. The pics I see are usually of rooms with linear after linear foot of counter top. Why? Some are staged with stacks and stacks neatly folded color coordinated towels (enough to handle a small motel) and others have plants and decorative items planted about. This is not real life to me.
I do my load and put it away. Even when we had the kids home with us the laundry was never left anywhere but in the owner's bedroom. Of course that was necessary because of the washer and dryer being in the garage. But how do the rest of you do laundry? How much counter is too little and how much becomes just more to wipe down? For folding, sink counter height just seems too high for me. Comments?
