Some lovely ideas but I disagree about the dividing doors as it does block the sound of the washing machine on a high spin.

We downsized this year to a 3 bed duplex apartment with a bathroom and ensuite. As there’s just the 2 of us we decided to convert the extremely small shower space in the ensuite to a utility space. We left the extractor fan in place to cope with any residual steam from the condenser dryer. An added benefit is that I no longer have to carry all the laundry up and down stairs (my first thought when I saw the basement room in the article).

I’m still looking to maximise storage but it has worked out so well!
