Laundry is often at the back of people’s minds when planning their kitchens. Washing machines and tumble dryers just aren’t sexy and are always associated with boring laundry work.

Focussing all your attention on the fabulous array of kitchen gadgets and appliances gets everyone’s pulse racing. Its okay, we completely understand! However its in the months and years after your stunning new kitchen has been installed, when you’re doing the laundry, that you come back down back down to Earth with a… back injury.

Why bend down to your washer and drier?
This makes no sense!

Good planning goes a long way, think about the practicalities

  1. Location location location

    Consider the placement of your washing machine or tumble dryer with care. Avoid having it as the focal point of your kitchen, but also make sure it’s not hidden away in a hard-to-reach spot behind obstacles. Choose a location that is both practical and aesthetically pleasing.

  2. Down down, deeper and down

    None of us are getting any younger. Being kind on our backs is important if we want to avoid back-pain, or worse. Why put your washing machine and tumble dryer down at floor level? It just means you have to bend down to load and unload โ€” this just isn’t practical.

  3. Level-up!

    Our solution to bending down to get the laundry basket and getting back ache in the process is… raise up the washer to your level so you don’t have to bend down any more. It’s that simple!
