I wish I had the magic number- there are so many variables- I would get a couple bids from contractors. Best-Lucy

Does it seem - Does it seem like the placement here is a fire hazard? Materials used could spread a fire if there was a lint build up somewhere in the line. A we know, using dryer sheets consistently coat lint screens, causing a fire hazard. Use vinegar hot water to cut waxy build up, or better, don't use the products in favor of vinegar rinse.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The cheerful laundry room was the first room to be redesigned, and it inspired all of other rooms on the basement level. New countertops and cabinetry, colorful built-ins and a painted concrete floor transformed this space. A cute set of curtains hides drying laundry when guests come over. "She loves doing laundry now," says Penfield of the client. "Who wouldn't?"Paint color on built-in shelves: Raspberry Pudding, Benjamin Moore and Cocktail Hour, Hirshfield's
Bneato Professional Organizing added this to Small Steps to Organizing Success
Rooms and ClosetsOrganizing an entire room or closet might take more time than you bargained for. To break the project up, set aside tasks that can be tackled while you're watching TV or listening to music.Trying on clothes. It's tough to keep focus if you alternate between sorting piles by category and trying on clothes for size. Set aside clothing you need to try on and deal with it later, which could mean today or next week.Untangling necklaces and bracelets. This is best done with a needle under good lighting. Testing out batteries. Even though you may think it will only take a second, this activity is a minefield of unforeseen distractions. You'll probably need time to hunt down your rarely used battery charger to check levels.Expert tip: Keep your to-do list close by so that you can jot down all the items that will need attention at a later time.
Buckminster Green LLC added this to Contractor Tips: Wise Advice for Laundry Room Design
One of the first upgrades to make to a laundry room is adding counter space. Front-loading washers free up space on top of the appliance, so it is possible to install a counter over the washer and dryer. Make sure to leave space for the machines to move without hitting the counter. You'll need to install wood blocking to support the counter — don't rest it on the machine.

11. Contractor Tips: Wise Advice for Laundry Room DesignWhile laundry rooms used to be seen only in basements, they're now found on virtually any floor of new houses — which means they need to look better and be more efficient. This story covers all the basics, including adding storage, making sure your doors swing in the right direction and soundproofing the space.
3. Colorful Minneapolis laundry area. Small spaces like laundry rooms can be great places for bold color. Houzzers took a cue from this one, saving this photo for its brightly painted shelves and handy hang-dry space.
