This is the "laundry side" of the room. The dryer does need to be set back about 3". The different color on the wall behind the dryer is from having painted that space before setting the new washer in.
How do I maximize the space in a half bath & laundry room combo?
I'd like to update the bath to give it more of a "powder room" feel instead of being so utilitarian, but my question here is how to best incorporate a few things to make the laundry more efficient? Stacking the w/d is really not an option, although that would free up the most floor space. Overall room is approx 5' x 8'. There is zero counter space, and nowhere to keep a clothes hamper. This room is off the entryway coming in from the garage. The decorative wire rack (over the toilet) was added as a place to put mismatched socks, as well as a place to hang a few things to dry. The bathroom is not heavily used, as we have 2 full baths. We have some ideas as to how to go about this, but we'd like to hear others (especially if you have the same challenge for space).
This is a "straight shot" of the room.
This is the "bath side" of the room. You really can't see the wire organizer over the toilet very well. It helps to keep stuff off the top of the dryer.
