Hello! I have a small beach cottage but the landlord got the wrong size washer and dryer for the apartment and it's way bigger then everything else in the kitchen. it has to go there since the hookups for it are right there. Any ideas for me on how I can hide/ cover this stacked washer & dryer? Any suggestions would really help me out!

    Talk to the landlord and see if they can switch the over-sized W/D with a smaller unit. It's like the elephant in the room. You can cover it as mentioned above but it's still going to take up the same amount of floor space.

    Google in "Decals for Appliances", and you'll find some really beautiful cling, easy to remove decals in every theme imaginable. There are even beach themes, pallet wood decals and beautiful tile decals in every decorating color. The decal for a refrigerator can be cut to fit the dryer and washer. Have fun!!

    Are you able to turn it so the Back is facing the sink area so it's not sticking out so far ( maybe not due to the pipes right)?? If you know someone handy build and two walls on each side and cubboard door or bifold door on the front to make it look some what like a big broom closet. I'm hoping you get a solution 📌⚒

    Or assemble a pipe and canvas cover up. Make frames of pipe, either metal or PVC, fit canvas to each 'panel', make a frame for the back wall too, but don't cover, just use it for the bracing. The front panel could be made into a 'door'. [There are tons of PVC/ pipe assembly instructions out there.] You might need some bracing at the top too. Many a 'shower' enclosure has been created with pipe, so why not this?

    I think I would use what you have, Embrace it! Make it a Coffee or Drinks Station! Add a large tray you can move when necessary on to the table. Use the top door to hold a Notice Magnet board etc.

    Hi Nicole: What I'd do is make something like a skirt to go around the washer on the front and sides. Use elastic to attach it, and then put something on top, like a board cut to size (put felt feet on it to keep it from scratching the lid) and use the top for a mixing station for your cooking. You would only have to remove the board to do the wash. As for the top, I'd get one of those magnetic clings that cover appliances to match your skirt.
