Top 5 Washer Dryer Combo Units for Small Spaces

Last year as we traveled through Europe we decided to stay in a flat while we were in London. It wasn't big by any means, all of 444 square feet. Divided between a small living/dining area,


a comfy bedroom,


and a very modern, yet fully functioning kitchen - which I LOVED.


You wouldn't know it to look at it but in this sleek kitchen hides a full-size washer/dryer combo. Up until last year I had never seen, let alone used one. What a God-send this very modern convenience was to three cold and wet individuals. The first two days in Great Britain it rained and was unseasonably cold for June. We put our slickers on, grit our very American teeth, and showed our youngest the sights. Upon returning to our flat that first night, tired and shivering, we discovered the washer/dryer combo. Having packed either shorts or skirts, the one pair of jeans we allowed ourselves were drenched and splashed with mud from the London streets. Deciding to wash our jeans, it took Mr.P and I both to figure out how to work this wonder machine. We popped our wet and dirty clothes in before bed and awoke to clean AND blessedly DRY close the next morning. We felt ready to face another day of rain, and knowing we could wash and dry our jeans again that night we had a marvelous time! We felt so urban chic!

If Mr.P and I get lucky enough to ever rent an extended- stay apartment in NYC or Paris it will be fitted with one of these very efficient machines. I've done a little homework and check out the best of the best. Since the dryers do not use a vent it takes at least double the normal amount of time a vented dryer would. But they are more environmentally friendly because they use less power to operate and although they are required to run longer during the drying period they also use significantly less water because of the front load design. Which one would you pick for your tiny house or small space? 


LG WM3987HW
This combination washer / dryer is perfect if you don't have an external venting source, which conventional dryers require, and it runs on standard voltage electricity. Although it is a space-efficient laundry solution, ideal for locations where a separate washer and dryer wouldn't fit, the full-size tub (3.6 cu ft) means you won't be compromising on washing capacity.

  2. Steam pressure cleaning is an ideal method too, to clean harder depositions and tougher stains. These washers are designed in such a manner that water is gushed at a greater force through the nozzle at nearly boiling temperatures. This leads to steam expansion. The more the velocity at which the water is actuated, the more the steam expands. BEST ELECTRIC PRESSURE WASHERS
