laundry room design and chute
i have 3 kids, 2 dogs, 1 husband and a significant laundry-management problem: i can't keep up with it!! we are putting an addition on to our home,which includes a laundry chute going into a small but brand-new basement laundry room. i'm looking for tips/suggestions on laundry room design. i've never had a chute: should it open flat into the ceiling so that the dirty clothes fall into a big canvas laundry basket? GC says it should open into a trap door, which you then open to let the laundry fall....on your head? GC lives alone, clearly! What kind of system do you all have for sorting laundry? How do you keep up with it? Can you recommend a book (martha stewart?) on laundry room design ideas? Does anyone have ideas for fun sorting containers and where to buy?
I've posted a similar question to this on my houseblog which is listed below.
