Look! Laundry Chute in the Kitchen

We did a little house sitting this winter while our lucky friends spent a month down south. We really got used to living in their home. One surprise convenience was the laundry chute in their kitchen...

The laundry room is located directly below the kitchen and this corner cabinet allows laundry to be dropped right into a hamper below. No carrying basket loads down the stairs! It seems this would be an easy set-up for many homes with the laundry room in the basement. We had never actually used a laundry chute before and found it fun (we're easily entertained) and really handy. Do you have a laundry chute at home?
