Entrance hall and wardrobe

Installing a washing machine in the hallway is possibleOnly in case of secure communication. Well and in the rest - business of imagination. If space allows, then you can install the machine just near the wall. If you want to use the hallway as efficiently as possible, many recommend that you hide the washing machine in one of the built-in closets. Firstly, your guests will not see it, and secondly, a place above the washing machine will be used to store things.

Tip: Do not forget that the washing machine in the cabinet requires additional ventilation both during operation and during downtime.


The washing machine in the kitchen is already a classic. This is the ability to connect to communications, and the ability to hide it in the built-in furniture. In addition, the kitchen is not so wet as in the bathroom, which in itself is better for electronics. But where to install it - this is the choice of everyone. The washing machine will perfectly stand up both under the sink, and next to it, under the countertop. Also an excellent option can be considered installing the washing machine under the dishwasher or even under the oven. In general, the options are the sea. The main thing is to choose the one that suits you. At us in Bulgaria on the kitchen the machine is built, from above it is covered with a door, all OK, any inconveniences. The main thing here is to choose the correct size of the machine so that it fits)))

Maria, from the forum By the way, still there is a variant of installation washingCars on the balcony or on the loggia. But here it is important either to live in warm latitudes, or to maximally warm the balcony. And there can be problems with communications. Therefore, the best option is still the bathroom and kitchen.;;;;;
