We're doing some work on our house, and we are hoping to move our kitchen into the back room to make an open plan living space. We currently have a fairly small kitchen in its own room. We would like to convert the current kitchen into a laundry room and a toilet room (so we'd put a partition wall in to block off the toilet.) There is currently a doorway connecting the kitchen to the front room, which we plan to get blocked in, so we can choose where to put the door into the entrance hall. There is an external door leading into a side alley next to the house, so we'd ideally like to be able to bring the dogs in through this external door.
Our new laundry room would need a washer and drier (they could be on top of each other), a sink, some storage and a walled in toilet. I'm going round and round thinking of ways to plan the space, and was wondering if anyone has any ideas! All of the pipes for the washing machine, and plumbing for the sink are in the room already, and the upstairs toilet is directly above the room, so we hope the plumbing would be easy enough for that as well! Any ideas?
