My House has a laundry Chute that was installed when the 1929 house was built.
It is great because you don't have to carry laundry up and down stairs. it is about the length and width of a kleenex box but still fully functional. just make sure you don't stuff
cloths down like there is no tomorrow. if your community doesn't have anything against it, get a laundry chute

I did not install one but my house was made with it. I LOVE IT. there are no fire codes against it in my community because the houses were built with them! :) if you can, install a laundry chute!

Can you use a medicine cabinet door?

Be prepared to assemble and install your own door. We live in a large city and couldn't locate a single place that sold a "pre-assembled laundry chute door." You can find some on the internet, but the cost is very high. Also, the instructions aren't very helpful on an easy way to cut out the subfloor. We ended up drilling large pilot holes on all 4 corners of the chute floor (after removing the drywall), then using a reciprocating saw from the basement to cut out the hole. In the end, this project will have taken us about 10 hours of work! And we're both fairly handy folks...
