The laundry room's top-of-the-line appliances include the front-load washer with a deep-clean sanitation cycle and a front-load dryer with the latest smart-steam technology to remove wrinkles and freshen clothes.
Check washers--in hoses and attachments--at the start of each season, especially if your area has hard water or if you store hoses in an unheated shed in winter. Washers harden and crack over time, creating easy-to-repair leaks that take a matter of seconds to fix.
This spacious laundry room boasts a side-by-side, front loading washer and dryer tucked underneath butcher block countertops. Crisp white cabinets provide plenty of storage for detergents and cleaning supplies.
For those of us who chronically forget to add detergent, or are prone to leaving wet clothes sitting for days, consider the Whirlpool Smart Front Load Washer. It sends alerts when it’s time to reorder detergent, pretreats stains on its own, and will turn on a dryer feature if you leave your clothes in too long. Use the My Smart Appliances app to start or pause the washer remotely, and to monitor energy usage.
An easy way to increase storage space when it's time to upgrade your washer and dryer: pedestal drawers. Most manufacturers offer versions that perfectly fit their models. Plus, the added height makes loading and unloading a little easier.
The red washer and dryer in this modern kitchen add a dose of color and functionality to the sleek white room. The counter space above the unit provides a perfect spot to fold clean laundry while enjoying the view out the window.
A cream colored theme keeps this laundry room looking bright and open. Ribbed cabinet doors and a washboard wooden door add texture to the room. A cherry red washer and dryer pop against the neutral backdrop. Over the machines, a hanging rack keeps clothes from wrinkling.
Cherry-stained cocoa cabinets create a gorgeous traditional style in this laundry room space and provide lots of storage from floor to ceiling. A stacked washing machine and dryer maximize available floor space in the small room.
The front load washing machine and dryer are perfect for concealing within a fitted cabinet space. Cabinet doors blend the machines into the built in storage around them topped with light gray granite countertop. A sink and additional work space allow the space to be a multipurpose area.
Floor to ceiling shoe shelves allow for organized and easily viewed storage for men's and women's shoes in this large closet set up. A marble countertop and wavy glass light fixture give a classy finish over the center island drawer storage unit. Closed storage cabinets surround a stacked washer and dryer creating a combined closet and mudroom design.
