When it comes to ADU development, many people forget how important the appliances and furniture that go into the ADU are. They need to maximize storage space and fit perfectly together to fit in such a small home. That is why we put together this quick list of ADU appliances you need to decorate your granny flat.
ADU Laundry Appliances
The biggest ADU mistake you can make is not planning for laundry within your ADU. Many people don’t want to put laundry units in because they think it will save them money and space. However, it usually just results in upset tenants.
An easy way to save yourself money and space is to install a two-in-one washer and dryer. This machine allows you to wash and dry your clothes all in one compact unit. It can easily fit in a closet, under a countertop, or even tucked in a cupboard.
If you are not looking for the easy convenience of a two-in-one machine, then a traditional washer dryer combo can also be doable if you buy a stackable set. Simply purchase two compact units that stack and stick them in a closet. Trust us, it will be worth it.
ADU Tankless Water Heaters
A great space saver for any ADU is to invest in a tankless water heater. Not only will it save you space, but it will also help you cut down on your heating bill. A tankless water heater heats water on demand so that you are not wasting money keeping water warm in a giant tank. It is the perfect solution for ADU owners.
Over The Range Microwaves
An over-the-range microwave is great for any ADU kitchen due to its dual purpose. It is both a microwave and a vent. You install it over the stove to save space on your countertops and also vent out your small space while you are cooking.
Mini-Split HVAC System
A mini-split system is a ductless heating and cooling solution. It is more energy-efficient than window units and saves you space in your ADU since there are no ducts.
