Laundry machines are humble yet hardworking appliances that help us keep clean and fresh, and the more we invest in the right appliances and in taking care of them, the better our laundry days will go. One of the newest inventions that can help make your laundry routine easier is the laundry pedestal. What exactly is a laundry pedestal? Find out more below!

What Is a Laundry Pedestal?

A laundry pedestal is a platform on which a washer or dryer can sit. It is usually between 10-16 inches tall and has the same color and finish as your laundry machines. Some models have storage drawers in them, but one should make sure to order laundry pedestals with storage to get this benefit. One should follow a sizing guide to learn which model is right for your appliances according to brand, weight limit, size, color, and finish.

Advantages of Laundry Pedestals

Laundry pedestals are helpful accessories to have for your laundry room in several ways. One is that you won’t have to bend down or squat so much to put in and take out clothes. With the added height, doing the laundry is easier on the back and knees. 

In addition, your laundry pedestal can serve one of two functions, a storage unit or a compact washer. On the one hand, you can store all of your detergents, gloves, and other laundry supplies in this compact hideaway. On the other, you could opt for a hidden, compact washer that makes it convenient to wash very small loads at a moment’s notice. A washer like this is called a pedestal washer.

Whether you install laundry pedestals with storage, a compact washer, or neither, you won’t have to take up any more floor space whatsoever! The right pedestals fit securely underneath your wash and dryer.

The Disadvantage of Laundry Pedestals

The only disadvantage of the laundry pedestal is that it is only available for front-loading washers and dryers so far. If you are a loyal fan of top-loaders, you will already have a comfortable height for loading and unloading laundry.
