Need help with layout for small bathroom/laundryroom addition
I've been so impressed with the help and great ideas offered on this site; I'm hoping you can help me make the best use of space in a small bathroom/laundry addition I'm planning by bumping out into my underused garage. The current end wall of the house goes to about 2 1/2 feet to the left of the door to the basement stairs. By bumping out about 5 feet, and shrinking the kitchen a little, I'll gain room for a bigger entry way from the garage; a new storage closet to the right of the entry door and bathroom/laundry room to the left.
The laundry room will contain toilet, sink, shower and stacked washer dryer. Because of the configuration, I'm gaining a big hallway area and a relatively small laundry/bathroom.
Ideas to make better use of this space? Bumping out a little more into the garage is not out of the question. I've looked at this so long that I'm cross-eyed and would love a fresh perspective. (Ignore kitchen design - this design was just a "placeholder" and is coming along nicely.
