I hate and love having our laundry room in the basement. Hate: I forget to check laundry as often as needed. Trips up/down steps. Love: I have a huge folding area and place to keep clothes out of guest's sight until they are taken to respective rooms by the kids/hubby. Functional exercise.

I prefer to have my laundry room upstairs where the bedrooms are so its easier accessibility to carry to and fro.

My dream laundry room location in a two floor home plus basement is in the basement with a laundry chute/dumbwaiter. The basement is great because doing laundry doesn’t impact any other activity in the home, regardless of what time the laundry is done. Our laundry chute makes getting the dirty laundry to the laundry room easy from both upper floors. All I’m missing is the dumbwaiter feature to get it back upstairs to the other floors! That would be amazing.
