Advice needed for a Pass Through LR to Closet

Posted by Zippity-do-dah (My Page) on

Our new laundry room will have a pass through to my closet. Dirty laundry will just be pushed through to laundry side and clean laundry pushed right back to my closet. Grins!

Advice is requested. The size of (current) pass through is the size of a doorway. The laundry room side will have a counter crossing right over the door sized pass through.

GC recommended a bottom opening so we can just push the baskets back & forth with our foot. I'm partial to having it counter top height to limit bending over. There will be some kind of door to prevent excess humidity from the closet. A clothes rod going through the pass through was also recommended but it would interfere with the door.

Any ideas? Anybody have a pass through already? I'd love any recommendations please!

Will your washer and dryer be atop pedestals? If so, then perhaps a pedestal height shelf below a counter might be another solution? This would free the counter space and somewhat reduce stooping.

Consider installing a bathroom fan in the laundry space with a timer wall switch to alleviate the need for a door between the closet to address humidity. When running, your dryer also acts as an exhaust fan additionally aiding in humidity removal.

Hi Fahrenheit -

I will check right away for bathroom fan in laundry with our GC. Very GOOD point!

Washer & Dryer will not be up on pedestals...but your idea is a good one.

Thank you!
