We are in the market for a new washer and dryer! Picking a washer and dryer can be a lot of pressure, anyone else?! Kevin was like, wow, you are really spending a lot of time on this! When we moved we left our washer and dryers with the home, didn’t make sense to pay to have them moved, even tho we did like them! Since we are remodeling our home, I am also looking for Laundry Room Ideas. We are actually going to do a washer and dryer on each floor of our new home. The second floor we will do a stacking washer and dryer (for the girls), in our bedroom we will have a side by side, and in the basement we will have a full laundry room for guests, and for all the pool towels.
I asked you on instagram what washer and dryer are your favorite. There were hundreds of passionate replies! I put together the most recommended and what we ordered.
Most recommended Washer and Dryer and what we bought-
We ordered this washer and dryer for our bedroom in the black (love the look). About 10 of you said you have this set and you have zero complaints, plus it has 5 stars! We did a front loader for our bedroom because we need the space on top of the washer and dryer for storage, folding etc. We have had a front loader with zero issues, no, the front was never “smelly or moldy”. I read if your front loader is smelly, it has a lot to do with the type of detergent you use.
- According to Consumer Reports this was the top washing machine. And yes, that is a front loader, they’re better at cleaning. Every controlled test shows that front-loaders remove more soils from fabric than top-loaders. Front-loaders clean better because the wash motion is more effective. Front-loaders also use less water than top-loaders.
- Speed Queen a lot of you recommended this brand
- Maytag– was another recommended brand
We put a stacking washer and dryer in our closet and we really liked it! Zero complaints with the this LG stacking washer and dryer. We are getting this same set as our bedroom for our second floor that is stacking (in white), it is just slightly larger than our previous set.
13 Laundry Room Ideas-
My good friend @mikobowen sent me a video of her washer and dryers and my eyes went 😍…. I told her to send me photos of her gorgeous laundry room to share!!! This is the exact washer and dryer we bought (because of her review and consumer report). She had had her set for over 10 years and just got this new set.
We are going to add a dog washing station like this in our mud room too!
And the other side of her laundry room. Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing @mikobowen!
Hopefully you will see our new laundry room and washer and dryer sometime this summer!
