Space is the main concern when you are building an ADU. How will you make the most of the small amount of space that you have? That’s why we put together a list of a few compact adu appliances for you to consider placing in your space.

Compact Dishwasher

There is no need to have to wash your dishes by hand since we have learned how much water it wastes. Living in a tiny home means living more eco-friendly. Part of that is having a dishwasher! How do you make a dishwasher fit in an ADU? Well, you buy yourself a slim 18” dishwasher that can hold up to 10 place settings in each load. Thus, making it small but practical for everyday use.

Compact Fridge

Fridges are a necessity in all of our homes. They keep our food fresh and our drinks cold. However, they usually tend to be quite large and take up a lot of unnecessary space if you don’t keep a lot within them. You can get a 24” wide fridge or if you would like to go bigger, 28” and 30” fridges that will fit nicely in your small kitchen without taking up too much space. These fridges are small and practical for living in a tiny home.


Stackable Washer And Dryer

One of the biggest ADU mistakes you can make is not having a washer and dryer. You can solve this problem by investing in stackable, compact units that can fit nicely in a corner or a closet. They stack on top of one another, taking advantage of vertical space, instead of valuable floor space. You can also get a washer and dryer combo which is both machines in one compact unit. These combo machines can be as small as 24 inches, making them easy to place anywhere in your ADU. They can hold approximately 15 pounds of laundry. The best part? You never have to handle wet clothing because it dries itself.

Wall Mounted Fold Down Table

Having a table you can eat at or do other things at is quite nice. However, tables take up a lot of space. To solve this issue, simply install a wall-mounted fold-down table that folds down when you need it, but folds up out of the way when you don’t.
