A front load clothes washer can save up to 40% of the water typically used in a top load washer. A front load washer uses less water and tends to get clothes cleaner as they are not sitting in a tub of dirty water.

A natural gas hookup in the laundry will provide you with the opportunity to use a natural gas clothes dryer. Using natural gas will cut drying times and will save on home operating costs. A natural gas clothes dryer may cost slightly more initially to purchase, but will save that amount many times over the life of the machine.

Clothes drying could include areas to hang clothes in the laundry room itself, in the basement, or outside on a clothesline. Many municipalities do not allow clotheslines in urban and suburban areas, but rural areas generally allow it.

If the floor is made of a synthetic material, it may be wise to consider a more earth-friendly choice that is water resistant, such as tile.
