Abstract: The two-fold purpose of this study was, first, to determine present arrangements, space allowances, and locations of laundry equipment in split level houses, and second, to determine the preferences of the homemakers for space allowances and locations of laundry equipment as related to other areas, levels, and rooms in houses of split level design. The houses selected for inclusion in the study were of three split level designs. The identifying difference among the houses was the variety in the placement of the laundry room in relation to the kitchen location. Data for this study were collected through interviews with sixty homemakers living in a housing development. The split level residences were equally divided and classified according to the three designs. Eligibility for inclusion in the study required: (1) a homemaker not gainfully employed outside the home, (2) family laundry done mainly at home, (3) home laundry equipped with an automatic washer, and (4) at least one child in the family.
