Beautiful laundry rooms! The one energy efficient appliance that is missing from everyone of these rooms is the clothesline. Where do you dry the comforters, rugs, and other bulky items? I dry jeans and tshirsts for about 10 min in the dryer and then hang them to dry. It keeps your clothes looking new longer and less shrinkage and you get done with the wash quicker. The laundry room sink seems like it is always in use....wash the small pet dog, soak stains from whatever, cleaning something in a deep sink keeps from splattering the water all over. A rod over the dryer is nice for drying something on a hanger, but for items right after ironing, like the built in ironing board, handy to use and store it and the iron, the outlet is installed behine the ironing board too. The laundry room should be near the bedrooms where you create the laundry, but not in the master closet. The kids get older, grandma moves in and needs help or someone comes to you really want them doing laundry in the master closet? Also consider the flooring, if you have carpet in the closet and a hose breaks or leaks, how long before you notice the damage? The humidity from washing? It would be better installed in the bathroom than the closet. We decorated the wall with a piece of clothesline with britches of when the kids were small to larger sizes as they out-grew and that is cute and reminds me of how much they have grown I will have to add some photos too
