Laundry Layout Help

We are plannng to build a stock Garrell plan, but are making a few modications and I could use some help with the laundry lay out. The first picture is of the stock layout. The one in the next post is of my thought on how to improve it. We really want the cubbies and like the idea of hiding them in what would be a combo laundry/mud. I have played around with SmartDraw, but could not figure out elevations.

What do you think.

RE: Laundry Layout Help

Here is my proposed change to the area making up the Laundry and Powder room. Note that I have bumped the top wall with the door to the powder room up about 8-10 inches to make it parallel wiht the end of the stairs. I have also bumped the right wall about a foot to as the extra room means more there than in the study.

This first attachment is my poor attempt at using SmartDraw. I will take a photo of my freehand attempt which is a little better. The shaded box on the lower left will be the cubbies. There will be cabinets above the W/D. On the remaining wall space we will put a sink, folding table, hampers, etc. Suggestions are appreciated.

Last file to upload.

This is my drawing of the changes to this corner of the house.

Thanks again for your input.

RE: Laundry Layout Help

Here another version I came up with. Cubbies move to top left. Powder shifts right. Not sure about how to swing the door the laundry or exact layout of W/D, sink and cabinets.


RE: Laundry Layout Help

I like your first layout with the w/d around the corner, with cabs above them, and table/sink next to cubbies.

RE: Laundry Layout Help

Thanks for the feedback back2nd. Wife vetoed that option as she wanted W/D closer.

Here is an updated version of last one. Only update, which I have not drawn is to move the sink to the right of the W/D. This gives a landing just inside the door to drop keys, etc. Probably use a pocket door here as well.
