The first step in planning your laundry room is determining its location, as shown in the Laundry room plan.

Laundry rooms are now typically located in the main part of the house, easily accessible. To save space, many people combine their laundry room and mudroom. The laundry room and a spare bathroom can also be incorporated. These are just a few ideas for combining two rooms into one, as shown in this laundry room layout.
