DIY Washer & Dryer Pedestals

Many people have chosen to go with the front loading washers and dryers, and why not — they can do a ton of wash at one time.  However, that ton of wet clothes can also weigh a lot, not to mention the constant bending and/or stooping to remove those clothes to place them in the dryer.  Then repeating that motion to remove the clothes from the dryer.  Why not take the ouch factor out and raise the appliances up so that it’s easier on your back?  You can buy pedestals to place the washer and dryer on but they can be really expensive.  For a fraction of that cost you can purchase the material and make the pedestal yourself by clicking on this link and watching the clip from This Old House.  These guys really breakdown the process so it’s easy to understand and follow.

However, if you find yourself needing a whole new laundry room, give us a call or send us an email here at Design Custom Homes.  We would love to help make your chores a little easier!
