A family room can be an asset in any home. Family rooms are casual living spaces designed around the social and recreational needs of homeowners.
Laundry is one of the essential chores we all do and a well-designed laundry room is an asset in any home. Many of us have lived in homes where the washer and dryer were placed in a basement near a utility tub. Basements really were the perfect spot to hook up a washer and dryer because of the mechanicals – outlets, plumbing and gas lines – located there and the fact that if a hose leaked or water spilled it could be contained and easily cleaned up. Plus, the noise of the machines could be muffled and dirty clothes were out of sight.
