I like the idea of using a niche in a stairway hall for a laundry space. Keeps a small footprint, allows a laundry area in a snall home. Laundry Room +small Design, Pictures, Remodel, Decor and Ideas - page 17
Stacked washer and dryer laundry layout great for a small space. I like how there's a cubby for the ironing board, a rod to hang clothes, a work surface to fold clothes such, upper cabinets for storage the lower cubbies / storage space.
