Noise Control?? Second Floor Laundry

Michelle NJ
2 months ago

Hi Houzzers.

We are looking to make a 15’x27’ 2nd floor addition and would like to move basement laundry upstairs next to kid bedrooms. Bad move? When our basement front loaders spin (Whirlpool, good quality), they are pretty loud and the vibration can be felt far and wide. I also think ultimately need to have barndoor instead of planned 32” standard door because of space restraints—even noisier, right? We don’t currently have any napping-age kids but they may want to nap more as teenagers or may currently need to do homework some time while laundry is running. Also will be near office/guestroom so may be disruptive. Here is current plan (though we still have a few updates before finalizing layout). Thoughts? Thanks!
