What Is a Laundry Pedestal?

Laundry pedestals are neat accessories; could they work for your home?

Laundry machines have come a long way since their inception in the 1700s. Today, you not only have multiple washing and drying cycles from which to choose but multiple accessories, too. The laundry pedestal is one of those accessories, able to give you multiple benefits without taking up more square footage. They are available for both dryers and washers. What is a laundry pedestal, anyway? 

What Is a Laundry Pedestal?

A laundry pedestal is a raised platform on which your washer or dryer fits and includes one or more assets, usually a storage drawer and in some cases a smaller washing machine. 

Pros and Cons of Laundry Pedestals


One of the immediate benefits you get with a laundry pedestal is the raised height of your laundry appliances. You won’t have to bend down so much if at all to toss in, transfer, and take out your loads. It’ll save your back and joints and make this chore a little easier.

Another benefit is the additional storage. You can neatly keep your detergents, stain remover, fabric softener, dryer sheets and balls, and other laundering supplies in the wash and dryer pedestals. This mode of storage will keep your laundry area looking neater and make more room in other laundry storage areas.

As mentioned, laundry pedestals do not take up more square footage of your flooring. It certainly will raise your laundry machines, but it will not take up more space floorwise. In a way, this helps to save space.

Do you have an extra load of laundry you want to take care of? Some models have a miniature washing machine drawer that holds up to one cubic foot of laundry, so if you need to finish off a large load or just have a pretty small load, you can use the mini washer.


Laundry pedestals are only available for front-load washers and dryers. If you raised a top-load model onto a pedestal, it would be much harder to reach. You would need to switch to a front-loading appliance to have one.
