Is it a mistake to get a top loader?
When we redid our last house I switched from top loader to front loader. In this house I now have an old top loader.
We are doing an addition that includes a laundry redo.
The front loader I had was 2003(ish)
--I didn't like not being able to soak items with Oxyclean.
--I didn't like not being able to add all the random items I found after the cycle started because it locked.
--I didn't like that my clothes developed a musty smell that seems permanent - at least in towels.
-- always seemed to be water in the drum sloshing.
I liked that the clothes were so dry coming out of the spin cycle that dry time was very quick.
I liked how they could fit in spaces.
It would make the room more workable to have FL - but I don't want to be unhappy again.
The room is roughly 6 x 8 with a door one of the short sides. It also has a nook of 4 x 2 on a long side - which they have drawn a counter with a sink in which I hadn't planned on but now I think I should keep.
I want to be able to fold.
I want to have room for my ironing board and drying racks.
plus storage space/shelving
I want a place to hang up clothes.
and a place to store laundry baskets.
I don't know if all that will fit in this room anyway.
Could I get advice please and pictures of similar sized rooms so I can feel it more?
