Ideas For Accessory Dwelling Unit Appliances

Accessory Dwelling Unit Appliances are compact appliances designed to perfectly fit inside your ADU. However, not all appliances are created equal and sometimes you may not be aware of all your different options. To help you keep your ADU development costs down and your amount of livable space high, we have put together a few appliance ideas to help you design your dream ADU.

Mini-Split HVAC Systems

Heating and cooling your ADU is important to the comfort level of the individuals that are going to live there. However, conventional heating and cooling systems can take up a lot of space and are not very energy efficient for an ADU. That is why we recommend using a mini-split.

You can get a wall, floor, or ceiling mounted indoor unit that connects to an outdoor compressor. There are a plethora of systems to choose from to best fit your needs but you may be limited by the number of qualified installers in your area.

4-Piece Kitchen Set

You need the basic appliances within your kitchen but may not have space for all of them. To solve this problem, you can get an all-in-one solution like a 4-piece kitchen set. These kitchen sets come with a:

  • Fridge
  • Dishwasher
  • Microwave
  • Oven

By having them all in one compact solution, you can open up more space in your kitchen for other essentials!

Stackable Washer And Dryer

Don’t make the mistake of not including a way for the individuals living in the ADU to do their laundry because no one enjoys spending their time at the laundromat. Many people make this mistake because they don’t want to take up valuable space with larger washing and drying units.

However, you can solve this problem with a stackable washer and dryer that can fit conveniently within a closet in your ADU. By being on top of one another, they take up less floor space!

Washer And Dryer Combo

Don’t want to take up so much vertical space either? Consider a washer and dryer combo that combines the two machines into one, compact machine. This combo can fit in a closet, under a counter, or just nestled in a corner!
