Running PEX from bathroom to laundry

so one more question.... If I was to tap my current lines (hot and cold) that are running to the main Bath and wanted to extend them to hook up Laundry (1 HE Washer and 1 utility sink) - would you recommend that I maintain 3/4 pipes or reduce right after the Bath run ends to 1/2 ?
Which way would be better and less prone to drop water pressure ??

The current hook up is that I have 3/4 main lines (Hot and Cold) running all the way to stub-outs in the Bath where it reduces to 1/2 inch to toilet, sink and shower with bath tub

Laundry hook up will be about 10 feet run after the shower - which is the last leg in the Bath.

I suggest you keep lines 3/4 all the way to the laundry. 1/2 would work OK, but 3/4 may reduce your fill times a little, and the cost savings from using 1/2 won't be much.

I would continue the 3/4" for the remaining 10' to the appliances, turning at their location to 1/2"
