I am in the process of looking at washers and dryers in the US, anyone have any brands or a set they like and could recommend? Also we are electric and not gas for the dryer.
This is totally just my opinion so don't think I'm trying to make some moral pronouncement here.
I think for 99% of people a sitting room in a bedroom is pretty much a waste of space. I think there's a lot of imagining one's self in certain spaces but those spaces do not get used much in day to day living. The house we finally settled on put most of it's square footage into what I call "public spaces," or the main living areas of the house, vs. other places. I'm not saying our master suite is small by any means I'm just saying most of daily life takes place in certain places in the house and other places are just used for a specific function, i.e. bedroom for sleeping, etc.
