Did you have to consider ventilation? - I'm considering doing this in our master closet; my concern is that our closet is in the interior space of the house on the second floor. Do you have a window in your closet? do you add special ventilation for moisture issues?

We are in northern Virginia; mild/cold winters, hot humid summers. One contractor was concerned and suggested putting it in the hallway with the back using up some closet space. I have a nook like yours (where your current washer dryer is) which can hold about 100 pairs of shoes. I don't have that many and really do not need to display my shoes :). wasteful space.

As long as you condition the space like any other, I don't see why it would be a concern.

About 20' x 10'-4". If I could, I would have made it 12'-0" wide, so the walkways would be 3 feet, instead of 2 ft. It was a remodel, so we were limited.

I think these were Miele, but I don't know much about them because they came with the house.

Will the heat of the dryer effect my clothes? - We may install a stacked washer/dryer in a much smaller closet than pictured (approximately 6' x 8'). Will the heat damage clothes? Should I put an enclosure around the W/D? Thanks!

You know what? I'm not really sure. I suppose that would be a question better asked of the manufacturer supplying the dryer. It's probably a good idea to keep the clothes separated from the dryer vent area near the back, like we did here. Sorry I couldn't be much more help than that.

Room Dimensions - Could you please tell me the room dimensions as well as the dimension of the center island? I'm guessing just drawers on the one side? Thanks!

10'-4" x 16', plus the laundry area at the end of the room. The center of the island has storage accessible from the other side. It was tight, but you work with what you have.

Shane D. Inman added this to Designer's Touch: 10 Amazing Master Closets
5. Laundry master. A stackable washer and dryer in the master closet make laundry a snap. This is where the dirty clothes come off anyway, and there's easy access to hang and put away clean clothes.
Ms. Fix-It Home Solutions added this to 5 Tips for Lightening Your Closet’s Load
2. Unburden yourself of the unworn. We’ve all heard that unless it’s a cocktail gown or your wedding dress, you should get rid of it if you haven’t worn it in six months. For many of us, that’s easier said than done. It could even sound downright unreasonable. But there are ways to put this in perspective. Our memory can be faulty, so try using these nifty tricks to keep track of what you actually wear. Buy pretty new hangers, and each time you wear something, put it on one of those new hangers. You can achieve the same result without investment by turning all your hangers backward. Once you’ve worn something, replace it with the hanger hung forward.
