WHY DO ENGLAND PEOPLE PUT THE WASHING MACHINE IN THE KITCHEN?!?!?!! WhY
what i’m so confused where else would it go
I’m American and that’s what we do….
We have… Wait for it… Laundry rooms.
What do you put in a laundry room though? Most people in the UK don’t have the space/money to create a whole separate room just to put the washing machine in and nothing else. It would be like having an ‘oven room’ separate to the kitchen??
The stuff you are about to wash, a place to fold stuff and a place to hang up stuff you can’t throw in the dryer. Cleaning supplies. General crap. We have some luggage in the cupboard in ours, some bins of who knows what. The dog food and bowl and a general place for cats to hide and perform nonsense. But it would be a nice little work room if the washer and dryer were some place else. I don’t know where else. Or where you would put drying clothes and other weird crap like ceramic Christmas trees but here we are.It sounds like what we all a utility room. Not everyone has one, though. Normally only people with bgi-ish houses. Otherwise all that stuff is just in the kitchen or maybe the living room and bedrooms.
How small are houses there? I live in a double-wide
According to a couple news articles I found (dated 2013, the first link below if you want to see a floorplan) the average house size in the UK is now 925 square feet. That’s for a semi-detached house of two stories that typically has three bedrooms and one and a half baths. That’s the sort of thing you’ll find in most suburban areas for middle class families. An average UK one bedroom flat is about the size of a subway car.
Compared to the US, the 2010 census for new homes being built ranges from 2,091 to 2,613 square feet. That’s two to two and a half times the size of UK house.
You said you lived in a double wide which I’m assuming you mean a double-wide prefab house. Those vary a bit, but a quick google search says that double-wides (typically) are 28 feet wide and 40 to 76 ft long. That gives a range of 1120 square ft to 2128 square ft. So depending on the length of your double-wide you’re living in a home that’s anywhere between 200 square feet larger to double the size of the average UK home that’s being built today.
Please notice that I keep on saying ‘built today’ as well. Apparently homes in the UK have almost halved in size since the 1920s.

Almost everyone I know in New York, if they have a washing machine in their apartment, has it in the kitchen. It’s the best place to put one in a small space because of the ease of connecting it to water.
My current house has a basement but at my old house, a single family home that was converted into two units, our washer and dryer were in the kitchen.
In the house we lived in before that, washer and dryer were in the kitchen and before that, there was an alcove built into the kitchen with folding doors that hid them.
Note that I’ve never lived in a house that was built after 1950.
The rowhouse I grew up in, which was built around 1900, had a washer but no dryer, and it was in the kitchen. We had a backyard; clothes were hung out on lines, or in cold, wet weather they were sometimes hung in the unfinished cellar, near the furnace. When the house was built, it had an outhouse, not an indoor bathroom.
The renovated carriage house I last lived in had a small utility room with the washer and dryer (stacked), water heater, and furnace/air conditioner, off the first floor.

Land of the forty-two actors, folks.
My boss’s boss (more or less), the head of cataloguing, is going around showing pictures on her phone. She has twin teenaged daughters, and the school they go to has “prom-posals”, where people make elaborate gestures to ask each other to the prom. One daughter’s friend dressed as the Eleventh Doctor (because she is a Whovian) and brought her a TARDIS cake made by their friends. She was expected to join their friends for a weekly gathering, but because she stayed home from school sick yesterday, he came to the house with the cake, in costume.
As I told her mother, that would certainly win my favor for the prom!

Don’t ever go shopping with any female
my man needs to be able to have stamina to go shopping and not be there just to hold bags, but to give opinions, have some fun, be like “look at this stupid outfit! isn’t it dumb?”
like c’mon, you can have fun with your partner no matter where you are, it’s not that hard
I don’t even know why people take their dudes shopping if they aren’t interested. Sometimes at my retail job I’ll see guys who are seriously invested and it’s cute but like, if he has no interest and nothing else to do why take him?
I have no interest in going shopping with Trevor for clothes for me. I would far rather go with a girlfriend or alone.
I gotta hand it to my ex for being a good co-shopper. I hate shopping for clothes like most people hate root canal, and he was always patient and encouraging.
