4 steps for making it fit

You like the look of them, but are that washer and dryer the right size? Your laundry room has enough going on; the last thing you want is an ill-fitting pair taking up valuable room. That’s why you need to follow this guide to properly measure your space and ensure you’ve got the right washer and dryer size for a perfect fit.



Step 1: Settle on a setup


Washer and dryer pairs come in a couple of styles. You can, of course, position them side by side, and, if they’re front-loading, add a pedestal to ease the discomfort of bending down to load and unload. If you are space constrained, stackable front-loading pairs are an ideal solution. In any case, first assess your room to determine the washer and dryer size and style that works.

Step 2: Measure height, width and depth


 Although the dimensions are similar, there’s no standard washer and dryer size. That’s why it’s critical to measure your space carefully and thoroughly. Do it once. Then do it again.

Step 3: Make space all around

In order to fit and function properly, your washer and dryer need a little breathing room in the front and the back and side to side. 

Measuring for width of washer and dryer, depth of washer and dryer and height of washer and dryer.





Step 4: Map out a path


Figure out the best path of entry: from your home entrance, through each hall and any doorway. Then measure the width of those spaces to ensure the unit will make it through.
