Preparing to Install a Stackable Washer and Dryer

Adding a stackable washer and dryer to your home requires some planning and preparation. First, you need to consider the dimensions of the laundry pair you are considering purchasing. Use these measurements, along with the recommended clearances for the machines, to determine exactly how much space is required for the appliances. You can avoid venting space requirements and dryer vent installation hassles by choosing a ventless dryer.

Next, select an area in the home which has easy access to plumbing and electrical wiring to make tapping lines and installing electrical outlets less expensive. Once you have selected the location to install your new stackable machines, you must attach to tap water and drain lines, and have electrical outlets installed. Do not hesitate to hire a qualified, licensed and insured contractor to do this work if it is beyond your skill level.

Creative Laundry Room Ideas for Installing a Stackable Washer and Dryer

There are several different creative ideas about where you can install a stackable washer and dryer in your home. Some people use a pantry cabinet in their kitchen, remove the doors and shelving, and use this for their washer and dryer. Another design idea is to remove a tall linen cabinet in the bathroom and use this space for the laundry pair. You could also convert a hallway closet and use the extra space for storing your laundry supplies, and add a pull-out folding/ironing table.
