Planning the layout of a small space begins with measuring. You could draw your plan on a sheet of paper in order to visualize your ideas. A space saving idea is to stack the dryer above the washing machine. This is a very good idea for limited space and will leave room for a sink and cabinets. Machines with front openings are a great option because they can be built in and leave space for a countertop. An ironing board can be stored in a cabinet so that the room looks more clean, uncluttered and tidy. Go vertical and install storage shelves and cabinets above the washer and dryer. This is a valuable space and should not be wasted! The shelves and cabinets will accommodate all the detergents and moreover, kids will not have access to them, which is very important for families with small children.
