My laundry room is 6' x 9' with an entrance from the garage so it does double duty as a smallish mudroom - not so much coats as shoes. There is a window in the centre of one wall and on the other wall is the entrance into the hallway. Right now I only have a washing machine, dryer broke so we removed it and loved the extra space but no dryer? There is a laundry sink and two sets of cupboards up above the washer and the spot for the dryer. That's it. I like the photo of a laundry room with the stacked w/d, laundry sink with storage under and the bench with storage under. So finally to my question, ideally what size should the room be to incorporate a design similar to this one? Do you have any other suggestions for me?

If the drawing above inspires you--and your washer sink wall is 9ft long--then stack W/D, you can place a raised WC over the sink. The sink & W/D should total about 5' then add a narrow bench for one sitter at a time; next to that have a tall cabinet with cubbies high enough to store boots,etc. kit4kent

kit4kent made a great point. This looks like a good solution for your mud room with a smaller bench that fit with your space.

I'm trying to purchase cabinets to give me the same look as the bench/coat hook area. Any suggestions on where to purchase something to be used like the bench? I can tell it's not just a bench, but rather something custom made. However, I can't find anything similar. Suggestions?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

12. Smartly organizing a single wall space left plenty of room for foot traffic in this joint laundry room and mudroom. Using built-ins to create a sturdy space can give you the option of customizing a smaller room to fit your needs.

Dog food can go under sink or above cabinets. Water heater and broom closet is only issue. Our vacuum is just 30" high when in stored position. Dirty clothes can remain in baskets going to and from rooms. Then...there's our door/s. Hmmmm

This might be the best picture for what I'm thinking...except: - everything is reversed - hopefully add one more set (of 2) of cabinets over/under the bench - no cabinets over the sink (I want to hang an expanding drying rack on the wall over the sink) - add a narrow cabinet next to W/D to hold ironing board, collapsable laundry baskets, etc. - and possibly have the other cabinets go to the ceiling
