Default Can a hamster cage go here?

The only space i have for the hamster cage to go is in the room / walkway in-between the living room and dinning room/ kitchen. It's on the wall in-between the bathroom and laundry room. Would this be suitable? I know its best to have them in a room away from high traffic areas but we wont be able to get the cage upstairs so this is the only option. I want to provide the best care for my future hamster so if this spot won't be okay for him then i won't get one s i don't want to put it anywhere that would cause it stress.

I would personally be concerned with potential fumes from the bathroom and laundry room that could possibly cause harm to your hamster(whether irritating their nose or being toxic).

Do you have any other pets? If you have any other pets, in particular predators such as dogs and cats, you cannot keep them in the same room or anywhere with access - there has to be a secure door between hamsters and any potential predator!

It doesn't really sound like a suitable spot tbh, as you say high traffic areas are far from ideal, temperature & humidity are less likely to remain stable close to a bathroom & laundry room & there would also most likely be a fair amount of strong scents coming from both.
I would have a think about seeing if you can rearrange things in another more suitable room if you really want to give a ham a home.
