**Downsize your laundry.** Slotting your washing machine and dryer into a cupboard enables you to have a laundry in high-traffic areas such the kitchen or bathroom, which can also be shut it away. Also utilise any spare surface area for storage by building in shelves, shacks and hooks.

great laundry space - This might be a way we could create storage space for gear etc in our little laundry room? @Kelly Potter - I'd probably have a higher counter for folding next to the washer and dryer and deeper shelving.
