A laundry pedestal is an accessory that goes underneath your front-load washing machine or dryer. There are two main benefits to using a laundry pedestal.
First, it raises your appliance off the floor by 12-16 inches, making it easier to reach inside the wash bin. This allows you to load and unload the machine with less bending, putting less strain on your back.
Second, most laundry pedestals also contain a large drawer that gives you more storage space. By keeping your detergent, bleach, dryer sheets and other laundry supplies here, you can organize and de-clutter your laundry space.
When looking for a laundry pedestal, make sure it's compatible with your model of washer or dryer.
