Laundry room is a #1 home essential

Who wouldn't, when everyone needs clean clothes?

While laundromats abound in Kingstowne VA, it's almost inconceivable to visit one, especially with a family of three or more.

Imagine its laundry day but the weather won't cooperate, the baby's getting colicky or an emergency needs attending to. Those unwashed clothes will pile up.

With a laundry room, clothes can be washed anytime, day or night, colic or no colic. Likewise, unfolded garments can be kept here until they're ready to be folded and stored away--all without the unsightly mess.


Get an Energy Star®-rated ceiling fan

Among 86% of home buyers, 44% of them across all generations ranked this fixture as a home essential.
