If you had a choice would you have your laundry room/area on the first floor or second?
Right now ours is on the second but we might be building a new house and the plan has it on the first. It's nice now on the second b/c I just carry clothes in and out of rooms to washer/dryer all on same floor but down side is with 14 month old I'm usually on first floor most of the day so I usually forget to do laundry and if we have a another child I'm sure the laundry will never get done. Also if it's on the first floor I could do it while they are sleeping and not worry about noise waking anyone. I'm considering having laundry chute so I don't have to carry clothes downstairs just up to put them away.
