We are reworking our upstairs layout, and the only thing holding me back is the laundry area. We are planning to sell in the spring so we want to make the right decision. Would not having a dedicated laundry room be a deal breaker for you? We have room for a laundry room, but now that everything is torn down and more open, I was thinking something like a built in cabinet like below photos instead of a closet. Not sure if it matters, but the house is approx 2900 sqft with second floor laundry. Would love anyone's opinions.
