Another aesthetic solution is to close your washing machine and dryer with cabinets. It’s also practical, because you can hide the washing machine and a dryer anywhere, for example, under the sink, or put them in a customized cabinet with a countertop. so you can use it for something else. You can put them in your laundry room, kitchen or even in a hallway. This is a perfect solution for small apartments. 

Put your washing machine and dryer together

Even if your home is big enough, it’s good to have more available space. In order to save space, stack your dryer on the top of your washing machine. How to do that? Use a stacking kit. Stacking kits help dryers to be securely stuck on washing machines. So, you don’t have to worry about your dryer falling down.

Pay attention to the model of a stacking kit before you buy it. Because, some stacking kits are compatible just for a specific brand, and that’s usually the case  for the same brands.  Some brands offer stacking kits with a slide-out shelf, and you can use it in a variety of ways. When you organize your laundry from the dryer, you can fold it on that shelf.

At the end, you can hide them and install stylish sliding doors, or with a wooden door.The cheapest way is to buy a full length curtain.
