When we did the small addition we knew we had to have a second bathroom. We also wanted to get the washer and dryer out of the basement and up on the main floor. It just made more sense to not have to carry laundry up and down steps to a basement we never use. I must say this was my favorite room of the house for quiet some time. I do find it easier to do laundry and keep up with it if it’s upstairs. This small room has also been helpful with the dogs. We now have a place for their crate and food.
