Most any residential structures are suitable for accommodating a great deal of weight, Cherie, but you're looking for the design deflection of the joist system under a standard loading (10 psf dead load, 40 psf live). Our Deflectometer in the dark blue bar near the top of the page is a bit more conservative than that and will give a good go/no-go reading to begin your evaluation.

But it would still be helpful to have some idea what you're doing. Is this just an empty space where you now plan to build a shower and tile the floor? Is this the same laundry room where you've installed the toilet? Are we on the ground floor with a crawl space below? Are we converting an attic space? Is that tub/shower looking thing in your photo in place or is that to be moved into the area in question? The more you tell us about the project, the better we can help you complete it successfully.

My opinion; worth price charged.
