Space-Saving Ideas: The Benefits of a Stackable Washer-Dryer

Staff Writer · Jan 25, 2010

A stackable washer and dryer is the best space-saving idea when it comes to laundry needs. Traditional washing machines and dryers can be bulky and require twice as much space on the ground. Some apartments are not large enough to hold both, leaving those tenants no option but to go to a public laundromat or one housed at the apartment building. If you want the privacy of doing your laundry at home, here are the benefits of a stackable washer and dryer you should know about:

Takes up Less Space

If you’ve ever owned a traditional washer and dryer set, you know the amount of space it can take up, either side by side or across from each other. That’s less space for you to do related laundry chores, such as folding and hanging up clothes on indoor clothes lines. A stackable washer and dryer takes up half the space, giving you more room to do other things in your laundry area. Just think what you can do with an additional two to three feet of space. It may not seem like a lot, but it does make a big difference.

More Room to Move around

It can be hard to maneuver around a small laundry space, making it awkward to wash and dry clothes. Many tenants tolerate this problem when using traditional washer and dryer sets, because they’d rather that than the alternative: doing laundry somewhere else. However, there is a better option, and that’s a stackable washer dryer set. You’ll have much more space to move around, making it easier to do laundry.

Room to Store Supplies

Do you store your laundry supplies under your kitchen sink or in the bathroom because there’s not enough space in your laundry area? A benefit of a stackable washer dryer is more room to store your laundry detergents, fabric softeners, scrub brushes and other supplies that you use to do laundry. You can buy storage solutions to put in the laundry area as well, such as plastic stackable shelves and drawers, to help you store your laundry needs.

Lower Utility Bill

A more important benefit of using a stackable washer and dryer than saving on space is a lower utility bill. These are more efficient than the traditional washer and dryer set in that they use less water. As a tenant, you probably don’t have to pay for your water bill. However, this benefits you because less water needs to be heated, which means a lower electric bill. You can also adjust your settings on the washer and dryer to use less energy than a traditional washer and dryer.

Less Noise

It’s amazing the amount of noise a traditional washer and dryer can produce, especially if it gets unbalanced during a cycle. A stackable washer and dryer set is not noisy, and when you’re living in small space, near other tenants, this is a big deal.

Compare prices to find the best deal on a stackable washer and dryer, and replace your traditional set as soon as possible. It’s worth the investment for space and to reduce your energy consumption, which will help you save money.
