We have had this installation for approximately 5 years and have had no problems with mold. The items on the drying racks are damp, but not drippy wet. We also, have by code, a ceiling ventilation fan to remove laundry room dampness. The pull out racks do have some air circulation around them. So thus far we have not had a problem with mold in this installation.

The finish on the wood is very water resistant. The Miele washer also does a good job of extracting most of the water so the clothes going on the racks are usually damp, but not dripping. I have actually contacted a metal worker about doing future custom racks in a powder coated finish.

Hi - Is it possible to provide some instructions for how to make these dryer rack drawers? Thank you.

Thank you for your interest. The drying racks are built like a shallow bottomless drawer with full extension hardware. The bottom of the drawer frame has a small lip to hold a plate rack set in to hang or lay clothes on.

What is the height of the drawers from the floor? - I can't tell how tall the drawers actually are. The plant is touching the ceiling. I'd love to see another view of this room.

The Bird is a print on canvas that I found at Pier 1 Imports.

The racks we made were custom. We did have plans available for awhile, but are out of stock. Essentially they are shallow drawers using full extension hardware with a plate rack set into the drawer that has no bottom, but just a lip all the way around to support the racks.

I just bought one from Pier One (green background with blue bird and many other lovely colours) for $40 (CAN). I took it back because I couldn't find somewhere in my house to put it. I wish I'd thought of the laundry room! I was so disappointed...

It was just the perfect little whimsy in our laundry room. Maybe you can go back and get the print again and try it in yours as well.

Are the racks heated in any way?

The racks are not heated, but above the racks is a heat duct with a vent from the forced air heat. It does help to circulate the warm air around when it comes on a bit.

Drying rack is great use of space! - Your ceiling looks very low. There must be more to the room than what we can see otherwise you wouldn't be able to stand up in your laundry room.

I just saw the picture of your entire laundry room and now it makes sense -- I laugh now because for a second I thought you were doing laundry on your knees. Nice room!

Photos can be troublesome, because they don't always show the entire space at once.

These are custom made to fit over the European washer and dryer, using full extension hardware and plate racks laid in the mini drawer frame.

Hi Joann, I am not sure the bird print is still available, but it came from Pier One several years ago.

The water hook up and drain lines are behind the washer. We used an in-wall mounting box for the water hook up and drain, so the washer sat back further to the wall. There is an accessible shut off valve for the water, under the sink, to the right of the washer. There is an access panel to the electrical hook-ups on the end panel left of the dryer.

These are custom designed to fit over the top of the washer and dryer, which happen to be 24" units in this case. We have plans available for DIY's to accommodate 24" and 27" washer and dryers for $35 per plan.
