Let's see here. Your room for the Den is meant for your relaxing, a place to keep your personal goodies, A guy's private place. Her laundry room is a work room designed to wash & dry your clothes as well as her clothes and the rest of the family's clothes. The wife & I have a very similar arrangement. She has her Dream Kitchen & laundry room/pantry. She guards them feverishly. I am not allowed to touch her appliances unless of course they need repair. My garages are full of tools, finished & unfinished automotive projects. So I guess that the garages could be considered work areas as well.
