All the ones I've seen were in the kitchen under the counter, whereas most of ours are huge capacity ones that have their own little room, although we do have smallish apartment stackable ones. I'm sure the bigger ones exist in England but I never saw one. I love those kitchen ones though! So convenient! I always moaning about having to find coins and drag my laundry out, if I had a little washer in my apartment it would be so nice. I heard there's a new washer/dryer in one machine though, from LG or Sony, so maybe we should both do an appliance swap with Japan!
