Where Do You Do Your Laundry?

The laundry room in the Elle Decor showhouse, designed by Regina Callan, is larger than my bedroom — honestly. It's also complete with a fancy Bosch washer and dryer and is equipped with more cabinets than I have in my own kitchen. So returning to my quaint two-bedroom San Francisco apartment after touring the sprawling, stately, five-bedroom manse gave me a reality check. I don't even have a washer/dryer in my apartment. My idea of fancy when it comes to washing dirty clothes is lugging 27 lbs. of apparel to the dry cleaner two blocks away for wash and fold; that's a luxury. But we all lead different lives, don't we?

Where do you do your laundry? Do you have a tricked out, dedicated laundry room like this one?

I have a stacked washer/dryer basically in a closet in my hallway. I think the closet used to be a pantry or linen closet, as it's located right in between the kitchen and bathroom. Unfortunately, there are no doors on the closet, which tells me that it probably wasn't originally built to house the washer/dryer (they don't stick out, but they are just deep enough that there can't be doors). Eh, I'd much rather have a visible washer/dryer than no washer and dryer at all! I'm so bad at finding time to do laundry even though I have a washer/dryer in my apartment, so it was one of my deal-breakers when searching for somewhere to live. It was actually more important than a dishwasher to me.

I have a laundry room on my main floor, but it is tiny. It just houses my washer and dryer. IMO the room pictured is much too lovely to be just a laundry room!

At the moment, I have a laundry room in the basement of my housing complex. But that is all going to change!! Soon I will have my own laundry room, though it is more like a closet. But I won't have to lug all my clothes down twelve stories and pay ten dollars to wash and dry. Lovely!

Turtleshell, I used to live in military housing, where countless apartments had them in the kitchen. Not a horrible place, I guess. I have my own laundry room, thank the lord :)

My washer and drier are located... in my kitchen! I have a three bedroom condo. The kitchen is huge... but it is so odd. We have closet doors hiding our washer and drier. I had never heard of having them in a kitchen before!
