Our laundry is in the basement, in a small, windowless area. It is the most frequently used part of the common house and is certainly the least aesthetic. If it were in a sunlit porch where we could watch the kids playing and look up through the common green, that would be a vast improvement over what it is now. It fosters interaction in that you see people coming and going (if you live close to the common house, as I do), but it could be vastly improved if it were located differently. I hate doing my laundry because I feel claustrophic in that room (and, let's be truthful, I hate doing laundry). But I like socializing, so if the two could be combined . . . ? I'd probably need less underwear!
