Here is a pic taken during construction. You can see the space for the under bench dryer.…

Laundry and Vinegar
Yes we do the same as saveh20 says, we use half the amount of washing powder recommended and use white vinegar and the clothes come up great. We also use the vinegar on…
Thought i would kick off a thread on Showing off finished laundries to get more visual pictures for people.
Interested on ideas for above bench areas that work instead of…
Laundry sliding door or not?
I'm the opposite, I changed the door to sliding in the laundry. I thought it would provide more space in the laundry without having a hinged door taking up space, plus…
Wow this was quite helpful, never thought about the damage sun does to clothes, just assumed the clothesline had to be in the sun.
Narrow Laundry Sinks
Do you have a design of the wall/space of the area you can post?
Don't forget you have an overhang on the front of the bench (minimum of 10mm), the thickness of the doors…
Sleek laundry chute
An old thread I know but cutting out a top plate and nogs is not a good idea. Far better to install a proper one that is designed so that it doesn't compromise the…
External Door for Laundry
We are renovating the laundry area and looking to buy/install new external door.
Any recommendations / bargains around?
I ended up having the bench at a regular height as recommended by my cabinet maker.
He didn't believe me when I said my machine was 985mm high until he saw my machine in…
Where are your laundry hampers?
Definitely in the bathrooms. Make sense to me when it's time to do a wash I go and get the 2 hampers rather than having to traipse to the laundry and back every time we…
A question re dryers.....
Oh that's interesting - that they can't be mounted!
I am trying really hard to figure out a way to fit my dryer next to washing machine (on the ground, obviously) - but it…
bathrobe full of water
Try running it empty.
If it's too out of balance, many won't spin.

Laundry-which doors vinyl vs laminate
Remember they are not actually laminate doors. They are a melamine door with a 1 or 2mm pvc edge. Laminate is actually a totally different product, its 1mm thick and glued…
Benchtop over washing machine
Make sure the bench is high enough...I've been measuring the displays and they are probably about 2mm-10mm too low to fit a standard washing machine...
laundry taps under trough
Provided the taps are close enough for the hoses to reach you shouldn't have a problem. I have connected several this way.
Jiminy CEK, how much did that cost ?
Why didn't they just design the house better. We designed ours so the hall cupboard where the clothes go in on the second floor is…
Building on the boundary
We looked at closing in a room on the boundary but in the end didnt go through with it after architect advised us that the council wouldnt allow it as it meant more that…

Laundry - splashback, mirror or tiles?
Thanks everyone. Some good points raised. It is a narrow room with just a white wall on the other side so agree the mirror would be wasted.
The laundry is close to the…

I wasn't necessarily thinking I would pay that much for flat packs, just good to know that we can get a laundry for that price - whether it be through cabinet…
