A small laundry room doesn't have to limit you. In fact, it gives you a chance to show your creativity. You just have to think outside the laundry detergent box, so to speak. You can include all the basics by looking at washer-dryer combos. Though you might picture a stackable washer and dryer when you hear those words, a combo washer-dryer is one machine in which you both wash and dry your clothes.
With a washer and dryer combo, you don't have to unload wet clothes and toss them into the dryer. After your clothes have stopped washing, you just push the button to start the drying cycle. You save space in your laundry room by having one machine instead of two. You also save money because you don't have to purchase and maintain two appliances. You have more flexibility about where you install your washer/dryer because the machine doesn't require external ventilation. You just need a water line, power supply and drainage.
Start by looking at washer-dryer combo reviews before you hit the stores or start surfing the Internet. Better yet, ask around and find out what brands and retailers your coworkers, family and friends recommend.
