Even if space isn't at a premium, a whole room devoted just to doing laundry can seem wasteful. In fact, given that when you're engaged in this time-consuming chore you're inevitably multitasking, why not place your washer and dryer in a location that makes it easier to double up on household duties or squeeze in some recreation between loads? You can turn just about any room in your home into a full-function laundry without sacrificing its main purpose. Some of these dual-use spaces keep the washer and dryer on full display, while others keep them out of sight when not in action. So, take a look and get planning. Who knows—once you've created one of these flexible laundry spaces, you may even find yourself looking forward to folding towels.
