5'7' x 8'9' Laundry Room Layout

Posted by karin9901 (My Page) on

My laundry room will be off of my kitchen and have an interior space of 5'7" X 8'9". All are interior walls, so there aren't any windows. I plan to have a pocket door so that the open door won't take away from either the L.R. space or the kitchen space.
I have Kenmore Elite front loading W&D that are 27" wide. I know they will fit in on a 5'7" wall (as I have a laundry closet now that is that width). I would LOVE to have a small sink for soaking, counter top for folding and some type of cubby/hooks for my children to keep their shoes, backpacks, jackets, etc. I know this is a very small space, but some advice on how to best utilize it would be much appreciated.
(I have considered stacking the W/D, but I also want the room to be flexible for resale, so I wouldn't want to design around that since not everyone would want their appliances in that configuration.)
Thank you for your help.

Which wall is the door on? And how much space ob either side of the door?

RE: 5'7' x 8'9' Laundry Room Layout

The door will be on 8'9" wall adjoining the kitchen and the placement is flexible as long as there is room in the wall for it. I am not exactly sure how big the pocket door will be (32" I think) but I know it has to be wide enough to get the W/D in and out.

The door could also go on one of othe 5'7" walls, which may make it easier to layout. I'm playing with that idea now. Thanks!
