Laundry Room Pedestals

We saved over $400 by building our own pedestals for our washer and dryer. We spent a little more money in order to include the drawers/storage space. Love 'em!

    I was shocked when I bought my new washer. Then I found out it needed a pedestal - they don't tell you that ahead of time. I wish I had seen your posting before buying the pedestal. Brilliant idea.

    Thank you! I had fully intended on buying the pedestals with the purchase of the w/d UNTIL I realized how expensive they are. Goodness!

    Just a Girl, I bought mine on the internet and had it delivered & then found out I needed to have the pedestal because it was 3/4 the height of my previous washer.

    These look great! We've made drawers in a couple things so far and they are awesome!

    Thank you, Crystal! Not gonna lie--the drawers were a lot of work, but I'm so glad we opted to do them. :)

    You might also find it handy to make those low drawers also work as step stools if you have a wall cabinet or shelf above the washer and dryer that aren't easy to reach. Here is one I made in a vanity toe kick:

    If drawers seem daunting, you can make the pedestal with open cubbies and add baskets for extra laundry supplies, etc. You could also keep a small step stool in there. ;)

    Love this idea, I think I would like to build it only use laundry baskets in place of drawers, because my laundry area is so small already.
