Yes
Only on a second floor
No WAY!

I would be ALL OVER having a stackable laundry if I had the room.

LOL Emily !

I would probably have the stacked laundry in the 2nd level hallway so it is accessible to everyone and you have some separation from the noisy operation.

In a previous house, I had the washer and dryer on the 2nd floor. It was fantastic not to lug everyone's clothes up and down a flight of stairs.

I don't think I'd like the washer and dryer in any bathroom. However, if the only other option is to go out to a laundromat, I'd rather have the washer and dryer wherever they fit.

After thinking about the subject of where to locate a laundry in our own house plans, I concluded there was no such thing as the "perfect" spot. Make a list of the pros and cons of locating it in vaious places if you have choices. If I had to choose between master bath and doing my laundry in the garage or unfinished basement, I might choose master bath. It all depends on your situation and your laundry "habits" - i.e. how you like to do the laundry and how much space you need to do it your way. Especially with a laundry, it is wise to make the decision based on how the space will function for you before you consider esthetics. Unless you are the only one who will use the appliances, I definitely would not put it in the master bath. But for a single person or a couple, it might work out great.

The perfect place for the laundry room is in the maid's quarters :D

You don't need a stack able when a one piece European washer dryer is used and it doesn't require a exhaust line either. It what I spec for master bedroom closets in my larger plans.

It is. It uses a dehumidifier for drying . Just put the close in it washes and drys with no need to take them out in between. The cost as much as the two separate units coming in at about 1100 to 1500 depending on capacity. They are in the big box stores catalog so you can order that way or sources it on the web.

I have stackable laundry in Bathroom and LOVE IT - except for ONE thing: IF you clean the lint screen - and with the dryer - there is always dust on EVERYTHING - my only complaint.

Be careful researching those combined European numbers. The dryer capacity is usually significantly less than the washer capacity, which is inconvenient. Also, the dryers can be very slow.

I'd put a stack in the bathroom. I think that's actually quite convenient. Can you build it into a cupboard to hide it?

orangecamera has the best idea. If you have tons of extra space in the bathroom, then the washer/dryer would be fine. Don't forget, you still need a place to fold clothes and folding them in the bathtub is probably not ideal!
