Washing machine closet
Many people do without, but don’t know what they’re missing. They give you extra storage space, raise your washer or dryer, and make your laundry room look a lot neater! We can only think of benefits of a washing machine cabinet! Want to know more about washing machine cabinets? You’ve come to the right place.
What is a washing machine cabinet
A washer cabinet is a built-in closet where you place your washer and/or dryer. This piece of furniture stores your appliances easily and gives you extra storage space, for example for your detergent, laundry bags, and other items. By purchasing a washing machine cabinet, you also save space.
Wherever your washer and dryer are located, there is always a closet that fits the space you have in mind. Kitchen, bathroom, attic or laundry room, there is an ideal washing machine cabinet for you. That’s because there are many different washing machine cabinets.
Some place your washer and dryer above each other, others put your appliances side by side. With some, you build the cabinet above the washing machine, and with others, you create a cabinet below the appliance. These are made especially for people with back problems, so they don’t have to bend over anymore.
A washing machine cabinet is generally open, so you can directly access your washer and dryer. But there are also washing machine cabinets with doors. This way you don’t see anything of your washing machine, which gives a very clean look.
What should you look for when buying a washing machine closet
A washing machine cabinet makes the room where you have your washing machine and dryer look just a little bit nicer. They also give you extra storage space and – if you want it – they put your washing machine at a more comfortable height. But, then you need to buy a washing machine cabinet that fits your needs and your home. Check out our tips below to find out what to look for.
Size of the closet
First and foremost, of course, is that your washing machine fits the cabinet. The size of the closet should provide enough room for the size of your washer and/or dryer. Therefore, measure the height, width and depth of your appliances accurately in advance. If you have done that, it is also wise to measure the place where you want to place the cabinet. These are often tall units, and you don’t want your ceiling to get in the way.
What kind of storage space do you need? Is it drawers, shelves or cabinets with doors? You can choose from all sorts of things. There are also washing machine cabinets where the washing machine itself sits behind a door. So your washing machine is completely out of sight.
What is the ideal layout of your washing machine cabinet? Here too you have plenty of choice. First ask yourself how high you want the appliances to be. On the ground is easy to place, but if you have back problems it may be fine if your washing machine is placed higher. Then you don’t have to bend over anymore. You can place them above each other or side by side. By stacking them you save space, but by placing them side by side they are both at the same (comfortable) working height.
