Should I move my washer and dryer upstairs

5 years ago

Hi All,

What do people with laundry rooms on the second floor think of that arrangement?

I have a tiny and maddeningly inefficient laundry room just off the kitchen on first floor. I have some space upstairs where I could move some walls around, taking from a linen closet and oversized bathroom to create a small laundry room upstairs. My biggest concern is the risk of a water leak from a second floor washer causing damage in my new kitchen just below.

The alternative is removing the walls between the half bath and laundry room off the kitchen to create one slightly larger room.

Which is a better move?
