Raleigh Floor Plans with Laundry Room Next to Master

Posted by Penny Hull on Tue, Dec 02, 2014 @ 05:12 AM

Floor Plans with Laundry Room Access Through the Master Closet

Raleigh Home Plans

Raleigh Floor Plans with Laundry Room Next to MasterFloor plan designs typically place the master suite and laundry room on opposite ends of the home.

A separated layout keeps washer and dryer noise down, and it directs traffic patterns away from your bedroom.

Stanton Homes is seeing a shift in new home requests, with more home buyers asking to see floor plans with the laundry room next to the master bedroom, with or without an additional door straight into the master bath or master closet.

Here are a few favorite North Carolina new home designs - with a laundry room close to the master bedroom.


(This laundry room - located directly across from the master suite - is taken from a version of The Dinsmore.)




The Timber Ridge - Max Fulbright Design

The master bathroom leads directly into the laundry room in this Max Fulbright design.

The Ingram - Alan Mascord Two Story Home

In this version of the Ingram, a two story Alan Mascord home design, the master bedroom has direct access to the laundry room / craft room through the walk in closet.

A two story design - with the master bedroom on the second floor - has the added benefit of keeping the laundry room on the same level as all (or most) bedrooms.

The Halstad by Alan Mascord

In this main floor master design, the laundry room is located just around the corner from the master bedroom.

Ample storage cabinets, a built in ironing board, a sink, and two counter tops create a functional design - with easy clothing transportation between rooms.

A separate mud room keeps the working laundry room clear of outdoor gear and everyday clutter.

The Sherri - Custom home design by Stanton Homes

In this version of The Sherri, the master bedroom includes a private entrance to the laundry room, through the walk in closet.

Access between the master closet and laundry room couldn't be easier.
