Balancing design and space in the laundry room

When space is a hot commodity and laundry still needs to be done, choosing the proper washer and dryer for your home can be a critical decision. Oftentimes, small dwellings, apartments, condominiums, and cottages, lack a dedicated laundry area or room for large side by side washers and dryers. Even larger homes can run into this design dilemma when adding secondary utility spaces.

Traditionally, the laundry room was always situated in the basement. However, in many modern homes, the laundry room will likely now be found on either the main floor near the kitchen or upstairs near the bedrooms. Both can have their own set of space constraints, so choosing the right sized washer & dryer with full-size capabilities becomes essential.

As our Editor in Chief and Design + Build industry expert, Ramsin Khachi, underwent his own journey of building a family home, it was a no brainer he chose the LG WashTower™.

This sleek, single-unit laundry solution not only takes up half the floor space while tackling ultra-large loads, but its smart design also enables consumers to reinvent their laundry room design – and their laundry routine. Filled with convenient controls, built-in artificial intelligence, and advanced cleaning technology this utility machine is a true winner.

The LG WashTower offers a full-size dryer above a full-size front-load washer, delivering ultra-large capacity plus advanced washing in under 30 minutes.[1] Unlike conventional stacked laundry pairs, LG’s exclusive Centre Control™ panel is conveniently positioned in the middle of the unit – putting comfortable access within reach.

Additionally, the LG WashTower takes out the guesswork with built-in Artificial Intelligence Direct Drive™ (AIDD) technology that uses sensors to detect fabric softness and load size, and then automatically selects the right wash motions and cycle time for precise fabric care.

But wait, there is more……The LG WashTower will even learn your preferred settings. Simply activate Smart Learner™ through the LG ThinQ® mobile app and it will remember your preferred settings including your ideal wash temperature, spin speed or dry level. With Smart Pairing™, the washer can even tell the dryer the right compatible drying cycle, making the LG WashTower the ultimate laundry hack.

Lastly, with health and hygiene on everyone’s priority list, it’s also good to know that the LG WashTower has an Allergiene™ wash cycle that goes beyond everyday cleaning by using the gentle power of steam to remove common household allergens in fabrics by more than 95 percent.[2] In addition, LG TurboSteam™ technology in the dryer helps sanitize and refresh clothes in between washes!

In short, the LG WashTower is not only one of the most advanced home appliance innovations that packs ground-breaking, smart features into half the footprint of the traditional side-by-side laundry units – it is also a perfect fit in Ramsin Khachi’s home.
