    there are electric dryers that don't need vent stacks -- better yet LG's new heat pump dryer that reuses the heat generated to turn around and dry the clothes. No ugly pipes!

    while larger and smaller washers and dryers are available, there is a stable core of standardly sized units that will be reliably available in the future. that said, cabinetry and architecture are commonly fit fairly tightly to specific appliance dimensions, so it's a question of balancing your immediate desire for efficiency with a long-range concern for changing sizes. by and large, the latter concern is considered as secondary.

    as for the vent pipe, we are actually quite happy with its utilitarian appearance. without seeing the remainder of the design, though, it is perhaps difficult to understand or judge how well it works. the point here is that utilitarian objects and mechanical systems have a beauty all their own, and we had fun playing with them on this project.

    thanks for the input!

    The dryer can be pulled out of its niche quite easily, should access be necessary, but modern appliances have come a long way in recent years and with proper operation, clogged vents are far from inevitable. Thank you for your concern.

      8. Use Your ImaginationNot one to pass up a space-saving opportunity, this homeowner created a utility room and pet haven under the stairs. A solution like this will free up space in the kitchen (not to mention on the sofa). Want to up the ante? Try hanging a foldaway drying rack on the side wall. Choose a light one that you can easily lift over the banister.17 Ideas for Storage Under the Stairs

      Little nooks like this could be interesting, again if we want to build the house for cats.
