Building a Laundry Room for a Stackable Washer and Dryer

It is easy to build a laundry room in your home to accommodate a new stackable washer and dryer if you are handy with various tools and like undertaking do-it-yourself home improvement projects. The first step to building your new laundry room is obtaining the measurements of the washer and dryer, including their depth, length, and combined height, as well as the necessary clearance space required on the sides, back, and top of the stacked appliances. You do not have to worry about allowances for dryer vents, by selecting a ventless dryer.

After you have the measurements of the stackable washer and dryer, the next step is to determine where you want to install your new appliances. You can convert an existing closet or build a new enclosure. If you have an attached garage on your home that is climate controlled, you could build the laundry room in the garage.

Remember to Include Connections in Your Laundry Room Design

One essential step you do not want to overlook is the connections the washer and dryer require. You may want to consider these before selecting the location within your home to build your laundry room. The washer needs access to hot and cold water lines, a discharge drain line, and a 110 V three-prong electrical outlet. The dryer requires a special 220 V electrical outlet. It is highly recommended you obtain the services of a professional electrician to install new electrical outlets for your appliances, to ensure they satisfy current building codes.
