I have been reading numerous blogs on this site and others and I have gained a lot of knowledge just from reading here at OBB. I have read through and studied the "Whole Enchilada".

We are still in the design stage and had a question I wanted to throw out. I'm considering adding the laundry room to the master bath as I have never seen this done and wanted to know what the cons of this would be? Current design is 1.5 story home on a full basement, any opinions would be greatly appreciated. Our last home we built we put the laundry room in the basement and I said then we would never do this again.

There are several pros and cons for doing a laundry in the master suite. But don't make it the only laundry in the house. Many up-scale custom homes here in Tucson plan for a washer/dryer stack in the master bath/closet area. And if you browse the fine home building sites for modern plans you will it examples.

If you don't plan for it, it is difficult to do later. Biggest issue usually is noise, followed by poor location.

We are in the finishing stages of a $500,000 spec home and a laundry in the master closet seemed like a perfect fit.  Since we didn't want to chew up too much floor space, we went with a stack unit and added a second laundry upstairs.  We will have a similar setup in our home when we build later this year.  The only difference is, our home won't be a $500,000 home... ; -)

The down side is the lose of floor space, but the convenience more than makes up for it, in our opinion.

Doug,

We are in architect stage.  We are putting our only laundry in our master mega-closet, attached to the master bath.  The master closet is also accessed from the main hallway.  It made sense to us because 99% of the laundry is going either into your bathroom or your closet.  But there are 2 big things we considered:

1.  Do you have children who will need lots of laundry?   We don't yet.  But we also made space in the future children's bedroom/bath area for a stackable washer dryer.  That way if we do have kids and it becomes an issue, we will already have the floor space.

2.  Do you have long-staying guests that will need to do laundry in your home?  If so, will those guests feel comfortable doing their laundry in what may be considered a very intimate space?  Our guests are very casual, being mostly family.  Our family-guests won't have any qualms, especially because our laundry is actually in our closet, not our actual bathroom.  (However, if this were a problem, it  is already somewhat addressed by having that space available for the stackables in the children's bedroom/bath area.  While those bedrooms are slated for future children, until then they will be our guest rooms.)

Ask me in another year :)

Lauren

Lauren,

Sounds like you are on the right track, IMHO.  A double laundry is a luxury, but it only costs a few bucks if you plan it from the beginning.   Rough plumbing and a few square feet carved out is a simple task.

About those kids...they'll be here before you know it! : -)

Good luck on the new home and other things...

Doug
