How New Appliances Will Bring Your Dream Laundry To Life

October 18, 2021 – 3 min read

If there was ever a reason to be excited about doing the laundry, it would be brand new laundry appliances, especially those that make the chores a little easier. Your washing machine and dryer are an integral part of your laundry design, and they are essential for functionality. Whether you’re renovating the whole home or updating only the laundry, it’s important to remember that dream spaces are built with dream appliances.

What is a Dream Laundry?

Aesthetics are important in the dream laundry, but your appliances are essential. You need hard-working, reliable machines that are up to the task, whether that’s getting through mountains of kids’ clothes in record speed or washing your most treasured pieces with enough care to help them last a little bit longer. At the end of the day, a dream laundry is a laundry that should make your life easier.

How To Make It Happen

To create your dream laundry, you’ll need to find and invest in a washing machine, dryer and the right garment care appliances to suit your lifestyle (and wardrobe). If you’re a denim devotee, your needs will be different to those who prefer silk and satin, so give some thought to your most frequented fabrics as a starting point.

Once you have an idea of the features and settings you’ll need, you can start your dream laundry appliance wish list. You won’t be wishing for long though, because with the range of finance options available through The Good Guys, you can get what you need, when you need it, and all at Pay Less every day prices. It’s also a good idea to keep watch for special offers and sales. The Good Guys is currently celebrating reno season with a RealCa$h offer, which means you can get money back when you purchase eligible products.

Dream Washing Machines

A new washing machine won’t just transform your laundry, it may also transform your energy bills, as the latest models are more efficient than ever before. Your dream machine needs to be big enough to suit your household; for groups of three to four people, look for a 7-8.5kg machine and for five or more people, a 9kg washing machine should be the minimum. Empty nesters? Downsizing your machine is just as important as it’ll save you floor space and cost less to run.

Dream Washing Machines For Households of Three to Four People

The Haier 8kg Front Load Washer gets 4.5 stars for both water and energy rating and features smart dosing to save you from overusing detergent.

With Wi-FI connectivity so you can start the washing remotely and 10 different washing programs, the LG 8kg Front Load Washer is a smart choice for busy little households.

Dream Washing Machines for Households of Five or More People

For an affordable update, try the Solt 9kg Top Load Washer – it features 10 different washing programs and Pulse+ functionality, which allows you to increase the strength of the washing beats, saving cycle time.

Prolong the life of your favourite pieces by simply refreshing them with a steam cycle, instead of a full wash. It’s just one of 14 programs on the Fisher & Paykel 11kg Front Load Washer, which also works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to extend your smart home into your dream laundry.

Dream Combos and Dryers

The heat pump technology of the LG 9kg Heat Pump Dryer means it comes in with a huge 9 star energy rating, while also being kinder on your clothes. It’s got 13 different settings so you’ll never have to worry about shrinking your jeans, and the auto cleaning condenser helps to maintain performance.

The busiest of households will benefit greatly from upgrading to the LG TWINwash Dual Washer System, which allows you to wash two different loads at the same time. The main washer also doubles as a dryer (with steam cycle settings), so it’s a 3-in-1 machine.

Go big with the LG WashTower 17kg-10kg Combo Washer Dryer and save yourself from choosing two different machines. The dryer has a 10 star energy rating and the sleek, seamless design of the tower makes logistics a whole lot easier.

Dream Garment Care

The traditional washer-dryer appliance combo isn’t enough to satisfy the “dream” in dream laundry – and if you really love your clothes, you know they’re worth extra care. Enter the Samsung AirDresser Clothing Care System. This clever machine gently dries, refreshes with steam, deodorisers and removes wrinkles – perfect for those items too dirty to go back in the wardrobe, but not enough to warrant a full wash.
