WHY DO ENGLAND PEOPLE PUT THE WASHING MACHINE IN THE KITCHEN?!?!?!! WhY
what i’m so confused where else would it go
I’m American and that’s what we do….
We have… Wait for it… Laundry rooms.
What do you put in a laundry room though? Most people in the UK don’t have the space/money to create a whole separate room just to put the washing machine in and nothing else. It would be like having an ‘oven room’ separate to the kitchen??
The stuff you are about to wash, a place to fold stuff and a place to hang up stuff you can’t throw in the dryer. Cleaning supplies. General crap. We have some luggage in the cupboard in ours, some bins of who knows what. The dog food and bowl and a general place for cats to hide and perform nonsense. But it would be a nice little work room if the washer and dryer were some place else. I don’t know where else. Or where you would put drying clothes and other weird crap like ceramic Christmas trees but here we are.It sounds like what we all a utility room. Not everyone has one, though. Normally only people with bgi-ish houses. Otherwise all that stuff is just in the kitchen or maybe the living room and bedrooms.
How small are houses there? I live in a double-wide
We have an English flat style house in America and we have a utility closet type thing. We can fit the washer and dryer, have several shelves for cleaning supplies and Will’s toolbox as well as a bunch of extra cans of paint and all our Christmas decorations.
We also had a full sized laundry room when my parents lived in a double wide trailer, so I’m guessing having a full size laundry room is more of an American thing?
maybe? I dunno. I think my house is pretty american and we don’t have a washroom either. it’s like..a deep closet? it fits our washer and dryer and there are doors that close right over. and there’s a shelf over top.
I have a utility room with the washing machine in (and also the fridge as it doesn’t fit in the kitchen). This is more normal for medium-large rural houses, but rare for urban houses unless LARGE and affluent. In my parents house the washing machine is in the ‘cellar’, basically a cupboard room thing. But yeah, washing machine placement in the UK is very much linked to class and economic status of both yourself and your home.
A lot of English houses are terraces which are tiny. At least ours is. We only have two rooms downstairs (kitchen and living/dining room) and four upstairs (three bedrooms and the worlds smallest bathroom. Seriously the sink overhangs both the bath and toilet and the door hits the toilet when you open it.) The other rooms in our house aren’t much bigger, either. After a rough estimate I believe it’s only 250-300 square feet for the entire downstairs. There’s no way in hell we’d be able to squeeze in a utility room. @_@
My house is one of the bigger ones, with a nice amount of space, but there is still not enough for a separate room inside dedicated to laundry. For years our washing machine was in the kitchen, and the laundry was hung up on one of those foldy-clothes-hanger-things in the kitchen/dining room.
We’ve converted our shed into a laundry room now, as we have 8 people living here (plus we get paid to do laundry for another large family) and uhhhhh we definitely needed an extra space dedicated to laundry
