My thoughts would be to put the laundry back in the basement, turn that space into a home office.

If it's a bedroom sized room, I don't think office and laundry room as being incompatible uses for the room.

I wouldn't move washer/dryer to the basement.
I *would* think about staging the room with a small computer desk and small file cabinet. (actual computer isn't necessary - and probably better if it isn't there as the cables always look messy.)
(My home office is a bedroom - has a desk, houseplants and drying racks for clothes - the washer/dryer is ~6 steps away)
