Imagine a room dedicated 100% to the organization, washing, drying, folding, ironing, and hanging of clothing. All in one, single room. This would mean no more running hampers full of clothing up and down the stairs.
The good news is, this dream can become a reality. Introducing the amazingly efficient, convenient marriage of the Laundry Room and the Master Closet!
A union like this means no more clothes in folded piles on the bedroom chair. The combination of closet and laundry makes perfect sense and saves a lot of hassle. It’s a love affair that is finally making a serious move towards construction and commitment – a blissful marriage with the perks of convenience, order, and practicality. This “marriage” not only benefits all types of homeowners, but it also can be particularly helpful to seniors and those with disabilities.
To understand the benefits of this marriage better, let’s start by taking a look at the places laundry has been placed in the past. In particular, the place that became popular for washers and dryers back when most women were housewives and didn’t work outside of the home. These comparisons may help you realize just how incredible the marriage of a Laundry Room and Master Closet could be.
Off the Kitchen
Because most of a woman’s day was spent in and around the kitchen, home builders often located the laundry room off the kitchen. This allowed women the ability to multitask: they could wash and dry clothes between other chores like cooking and cleaning in the kitchen.
If you spend lots of time in the kitchen today, whether it’s cooking, hanging out, or helping your kids while they’re doing homework, then locating your laundry room off the kitchen could be ideal for you. With your laundry room near the kitchen, you can get loads of laundry done (see that play on words?) while you’re doing other things. This will also put you within earshot of the washer and dryer buzzer so you’ll know immediately when cycles have ended and you can transfer clothes.
