Are you like me ? When doing laundry, I want to get in and out as fast as possible. Not a place / room that I like to linger in.

It might be worthwhile to make your laundry area more comfortable, since you have to be there anyway. Might add value to your home.

MM- that’s a nice touch to a basement laundry room. Ever have clothes get hung up in there?

Our laundry is in a room upstairs at the end of a hall from the bedrooms. We have a futon and a table in there

No Z, We've never had clothes get hung up in the laundry chute.

My kid had that happen at a frat in college. They walled off the chutes thereafter.

My laundry room is just a small hallway between the garage and living room, so there isn't any room to linger. The new house has a bigger room with counter for folding clothes. I will have no problem standing there folding or hanging clothes. I have never had a problem in any house I have lived in with staying in the laundry and doing what I need to do.

I have been to a laundromat where I sat out in my car with the doors locked waiting for the machine to finish up.

When I was living in So Cal. There were several communal laundry rooms. They  were really the only places where I got to meet my neighbours. (And even then, they weren't necessarily very talkative).

Our laundry room is in the basement. Mrs. MM does the majority of the laundry but I help when needed. Since she has neck problems, I carry the clean clothes basket upstairs when they are finished. I spend time in there cleaning the dryer vent and maintaining the water purification system. It's not one of my favorite places in the house to hang out.

It's not a problem for me.  My washer & dryer are in my garage.  No need to babysit the laundry after transferring it to the appropriate machine.  (I owned two laundromats years ago, and I hated it!)

Most of our laundry is done in the garage, just off the kitchen.  When I have to go to the laundromat for the really big stuff my washer/dryer can;t handle, it isn't a problem.  While the local laundromat is not a place I would care to spend all day in, it is fine for washing clothes.  I take a book and read while stuff is processing.
