We are about nearly ready to do selections for the laundry. We just bought a new washing machine (out front loader died) and have a front loader for the first time. Both dh and I are quite tall and have found it a long way down to put in the washing and take it out again. Is it worth raising the front loader? We have heaps of room in the laundry, so can be flexible with design. The plan at the moment is to have overhead cupboards over the washer and dryer with a handing rail.
