Wondering How Feasible Bathroom Laundry Would Be?

Edited to add - hahaha! I should have read msradall's post first! Great minds
I think your on to something there.....

Basically....

Move the tub towards the outside wall....

Put a wall between the bathroom and the laundry area....that way people in the bathroom are not looking at your washer/dryer.

I think you would even have enough room that you could use stanard floor models with cabinets above.

Hence....instead of 1 bigger bathroom/laundry.....2 smaller rooms

Ddawg - so you'd walk through the laundry room to get to the bathroom? That could work.
Put washer/dryer in a cabinet so it looks good.
Pocket door on the washroom.

No, I think there would be two doors, next to each other. One to the bath, and one to the laundry room.

2 vet narrow rooms? The room is only about 5'-6' wide i'm thinking.
Or is the laundry in a closet accessible by a door that would be beside the door to the bathroom?

Another good option....

I think that could be made to look pretty good.....

Basically, a closet with maybe a bi-fold door in front of it....

As you walk down the hall, the laudry would look like a short hallway with the machines on the closet on either side...then the door into the bathroom.

There is special hardware for bifold doors that allows them to open all the way. The one problem with bi-folds is that when open they take 4" of space

Another problem with traditional bifold doors is they stick out into the hallway when open. Awkward when you have a basket of laundry in your arms.

I'd be curious to see the hardware mae-ling mentioned, we have several bi-fold in our home. Got a link?
