You will need to understand what needs to go into your laundry interior space. Typically, the following is accommodated:
- A washer.
- A dryer.
- Power outlets.
- A laundry sink or basin.
- Enough storage space for linen and cleaning products.
- Possibly a bench.
- Possibly additional storage cupboard space or consider replacing cupboards with drawers.
Where possible, when you are building or renovating your laundry interior space, it is best practice to try and keep your appliances and plumbing all together on one wall. It will help save space and keep all the plumbing together. There will also be some cost savings by taking this approach.
For appliances and a laundry sink, the dimensions you will need to allow will depend on the available laundry interior space. For example, you will need to allow for about 800mm width for your washer or 1600mm if it’s going to be side by side with a dryer. Most washers and dryers will fit comfortably into this amount of space. And for the sink, which could be a Robinhood Supertub you will need to allow about 560mm width.
