When your moving company
brings your belongings to your new home, you may not have brought your old washer and dryer to the new residence. This doesn't have to be a bad thing, as you can still purchase affordable modern options, depending on what you are looking for.
Washers and dryers can vary greatly in price, but you will want to get something that takes care of your needs, as this is the most important part. A flashy washer can be great, but if it isn't doing what you want, it could be a waste of money.
Stackable washer and dryer sets can be purchased for around $600-$700 depending on size. These can work great if you don't need something that is heavy duty or high-end. However, if you need larger options, there are many choices that can take care of more bulk.
If you can, put your washer and dryer in an area that isn't going to get a lot of traffic. Many families prefer the basement, but if you have a place to put everything in a room on the main floor, creating a laundry room could be a good idea. It could benefit to put a table in the room so that folding laundry is easier.
Additionally, keep laundry items near the washer and dryer. A shelf area for detergents, stain removers and other important tools in the washing process can be a good plan. These options can be relatively easy to construct, as long as you have a little know-how. Creating shelves don't have to be expensive, either. However, if you prefer to purchase such items, it may be a good plan to look for a low-cost option at a local home goods store.
