Compact and smart
Does your laundry tend to pile up? No need to panic - this guide is here to help you pick a washing machine, which has become an essential part of any home. If you live on your own or with a partner, a 5kg washing machine will do the job because you’ll never have much too laundry to do. If you prefer, you can choose a washing machine with a larger capacity and use it less often. Bear in mind that most washing machines come with a variable automatic capacity, which only uses the amount of water and power necessary to wash your laundry. This feature is eco-friendly, reducing your electricity bills and minimising the impact on the environment.
Front- or top-loading? This is a question that is frequently asked. Make your decision based on the amount of space you have. Top-loading washing machines are practical because you don’t have to bend down to load them. Front-loading washing machines are ideal if you want to save on space as they’re only 40 to 45 cm wide and 60 cm deep. Some top-loading washing machines also include a feature known as SuperStop or PosiStop. This function saves you time because, at the end of a cycle, it ensures the drum automatically stops with the opening facing the top.
Perfect for large families, front-loading washing machines are generally wider (60 cm), but not as deep as top-loading washing machines (52 cm). The largest washing machines can contain up to 10 kilos of laundry, so your duvet will fit in without any problems! What’s more, if you can’t (or don’t want to) dry your washing on the line outside, you can install a tumble-dryer on top of the washing machine. Integrated washing machines can be easily placed under your countertop, or used to extend your worktop, so you don’t have to worry about them becoming eyesores in your kitchen!
