Most houses aren't well equipped with a laundry room. This results in the washing machine, much like a refugee, ferrying between the kitchen and the terrace. For houses that have the washing machine in the kitchen, a great deal of discomfort is experienced due to the obvious lack of space. This is when it makes more sense to install a washing machine in the bathroom. Bathrooms with washing machines make the entire process of doing the laundry a simple ordeal. Check out these ideas suggested by the professionals at homify, for more insight on the same. 

1. Pick a common theme for the bathroom

2. Make use of the space beneath the sink in the bathroom

Rather than invading on the existing space in the bathroom, look for a solution under the sink. Place the washing machine under the sink and enclose it behind curtains or drapes if need be. This is a simple and economical idea that you do not want to miss out on at any cost. 

3. Cabinets for the bathroom

Bathrooms with washing machines in them might not be aesthetically pleasing to the eye. This is when cabinets come in handy. They can be built around the washing machine to conceal it. This leaves you with a more compact looking professional bathroom.
