Any area where dirty clothes would accumulate or where clean clothes are supposed to is an ideal place for a laundry room. Good examples of this would be places like the bathroom or closet.
After you’ve decided where you’re going to create your laundry room, it is a really good idea to waterproof the flooring because flooding is very possible. Consider adding plastic sheeting to the subfloor, especially if your laundry room is on the second floor.
One last thing to consider is the noise level of your washer and dryer. If your laundry room is on the second floor, get some vibration pads to ease the noise level.
