How to Have Luxury Appliances in a Small Apartment

The smaller the space you live in, the more you become aware of the fact that appliances are kind of a necessary evil. You can’t really go without a washer and dryer, but you also kind of hate wasting the floor space on them – it’s a love/hate relationship. Although you can’t omit these necessities from your tight quarters entirely, there are a few ways to save space when choosing and organizing your appliances, so don’t think your walls are closing in on you just yet.

The Washer-Dryer Combo

If your apartment is tiny, you don’t likely have a laundry room or laundry closet. That’s why small-apartment dwellers thank their lucky stars for the washer-dryer combo. It takes up half the space of a typical washer and dryer setup and works just as well. You can also find them at a reasonable price – they’ll cost around the same as buying the two separate units.

The Wall-Mount

Small kitchens mean small (if any) counter space. If you stock your counter with a microwave, a toaster oven, a blender, and whatever else you might need, you’re not going to have any room for preparing food. It’s fairly easy to create a shelf or cabinet for your small appliances so that they’re kept on the wall rather than on the counter. You’d be surprised how much more open a kitchen looks when the countertop is organized.

The Combo Oven

They say you should only keep appliances you use on a daily basis, and ditch the rest (that means that juicer you got for Christmas last year should probably go in the ‘yard sale’ pile). If you’re the type of person that uses your oven, steamer, and microwave all the time, you’ll be pleased to know that combo ovens exist. Consolidating those three appliances into one saves you a ton of space and is super practical for daily use.
