Wash and goWashing machines and tumble dryers are essentials in most kitchens, but they don’t exactly get the heart racing on the looks front. Stacking and tucking them away behind a matching kitchen cupboard door keeps them out of sight – especially useful in an open-plan cookspace where you want to create more of a living room feel.

Tackle your laundryIf you want to keep your washing appliances out of the way, you don’t have to sacrifice a whole room (or extend) to accommodate a utility or laundry area. By simply concealing the washer and dryer in your kitchen, as they’ve done in the image above, you’ll keep them hidden. You can use a similar solution for storing clothes drying paraphernalia, laundry detergents and ironing equipment, too.Discover more ways to disguise drying laundry

Hide machines in a sleek kitchen designMany homes simply don’t have space for a dedicated laundry or utility room, so washing machines often need to live in the kitchen. To maximise your laundry efficiency, you’ll need to get the washing in and out pretty swiftly in order to reduce cooking odours infiltrating the lovely clean clothes. Try to find a spot away from the oven, hob and food prep area, and aim to dry clothes elsewhere in the house.You can buy integrated appliances that are designed to sit behind a kitchen door fascia in your run of base units, or even, as in this sophisticated kitchen, keep a laundry cupboard behind closed doors. Just be aware, though, that if you want to hide a freestanding machine behind a door, you’ll need a deeper space in order to slot it in neatly, as it will sit proud of standard kitchen cabinets.

Choose between freestanding, integrated or semi-integratedFreestanding washing machines are the most common type of model. Able to be positioned anywhere, providing they can be connected to a drain and a plug socket, they are easy to remove and replace. ‘A freestanding machine will always be visible, so while it will be functional and easy to use, it may look out of place in some kitchens,’ says Matt Hall of Clover Kitchens. A fully integrated or built-in model is designed to sit behind a cupboard door, so it’s completely hidden from view. Integrated models tend to be quieter than freestanding models, thanks to the door that slightly buffers the sound. ‘Fully integrated is the version to go for in a modern handleless kitchen,’ advises Hall.Semi-integrated models are similar in that they sit behind a door, but it doesn’t cover the controls at the top, so you don’t have to open the door to change the settings or read any displays. ‘Semi or fully integrated machines attract a premium price over their freestanding equivalents, so they’ll never be as good value for money,’ says Hall.

when refitting the utility we can look at optimising the space - maybe removing the corridor?
