Most laundry rooms have some sort of shelving, but they always manage to get filled up with odds and ends that don't seem to fit anywhere else, like batteries, light bulbs and old towels. If you choose not to stack your front-loading set, you still have the added benefit of extra storage space on top of the units, unlike top-load models. This extra room is perfect for the placement of detergent, fabric softener, dryer sheets, stain removers and anything else you might need in your laundry room.
