How to arrange my dishwasher and washing machine?

How to arrange my dishwasher and washing machine?

Hi - we just moved to a new house where there is no obvious position for dishwasher and washing machine. From the photo, we have a few options
Dishwasher: 1) Half size under the sink or 2) Normal size next to the sink where those boxes are
Washing Machine 1) Next to the sink where the boxes are; 2) Bottom cabinet area on the far right
Please ignore the current position of the washing machine, we'll buy a new one and this is where the fridge will go :smile:

Hi @Lucianacarvalho,

 

Welcome to the Workshop community. We're pleased to have you join us at this exciting time. Congratulations on the new house.

 

Could you please share a sketch of your kitchen and laundry area, including dimensions? That will give members a much better idea of what you are working with and be able to suggest options for you. If you have the houseplan from the house sale, that would be perfect - just add rough dimensions on it. 

 

Do you have any budget or interest in changing cabinetry?

 

Thanks,

 

Jason

Hi @Jason,

Thanks for the message. You can find a rough sketch below.

I've just realised that the single dishwasher might be too tight under the sink due to the current position of the pipes, but any extra thoughts here?

That's a very small kitchen @Lucianacarvalho. You could contemplate a benchtop dishwasher but it seems you already don't have any bench space.

 

Could the washing machine go in the bathroom? Any options for an outside laundry?

Re: How to arrange my dishwasher and washing machine?

Hi @Kermit - we have quite a lot of bench space on the left side of the sink - this photo below is from the previous owners and gives a better view in perspective on how it all looks :smile: You can see from the photo they actually had the washing machine next to the sink, but no dishwasher installed anywhere
