Miele – One of the Best Compact Laundry Manufacturers In The World
When space is a premium, large appliances like washers and dryers feel like a luxury. Yet no one likes spending their day off at a Laundromat. If you can make owning a washer and dryer work in the space you have available, the convenience and improved quality of life will quickly pay off.
When you can stack your washer and dryer, you immediately halve the amount of floor space needed. For people living in small apartments or who just don’t have much space that can be devoted to extra appliances, stackable washers and dryers make the convenience of doing laundry at home possible, without taking up more floor real estate than you’re willing to give up. Miele is best known for quality, performance and longevity. They are the most reliable product sold at a 2.9% service rate within the first year.
Why Choose a Stackable Washer and Dryer?
The biggest benefit that stackable washers and dryers have is that they take up less space. Modern homes and apartments are all about minimalism and clean, organized spaces. Stackable washers and dryers are great for the majority of buyers that specifically seek out models that fit their small spaces. Laundry appliances that can fit in tight spaces are amazing in almost every way except for one; the laundry loads are slightly smaller. You may have to do a bit more laundry and stick with smaller loads, but the amount of space you will save will most definitely make up for it.
Most front-load washers and dryers are able to be made stackable with a simple stacking kit, which you can purchase to match the rest of your Miele appliances. This Miele WTV5061 Washer and Dryer Stacking Kit comes in a clean, lotus white finish and is perfect to make your washer and dryer stackable.
Stackable washers and dryers aren’t cheap. Even smaller combo washer and dryer models can cost close to $1,000 or up to $2,000, and if you choose the route of buying a front-loading washer and dryer each separately, you will most likely spend over $2,000 for each unit. Choosing your budget and deciding what features are most important will be crucial in deciding which Miele washer and dryer is the right choice for your home. Although your initial stackable washer and dryer cost is higher, you will more then make that money back in the savings from low energy costs.
Pretty much across the board, you can expect front-loading washers and dryers to use less energy than top-loading models. If energy efficiency is a priority to you, you can definitely find some models that fare better than others. Energy Star estimates that consumers can save about $40 in energy costs and 3,000 gallons of water each year by going with an Energy Star certified model, so check the models you consider for an Energy Star rating before you buy.
A washer and dryer is a big enough investment every buyer wants to last. With the heavier price tag that a stackable washer and dryer brings, the quality in brand that you purcahse from becomes extremely important. Miele is one of the top known brands in regards to appliance quality and longevity, so a higher pricetag will pay off in the time that you have a highly-functional appliance. Most stackable washers and dryers can be counted on to last at least a few years, but with Miele’s solid reputation you can up your chances of getting a longer life for your washer and dryer. Our most popular stackable washer is the Miele Little Giant Washer. Almost every one of our customers who buy Miele Stackable washers say that it is the most durable washer they have ever had!
