BOOKMARK

Everything about it fits an interior designer’s checklist.

In a modern home, design matters just as much as function; and the same goes for everyday appliances too. In that regard, Hitachi’s latest LINEAR all-in-one smart washer dryer series is a dream come true for homeowners looking for convenience and style in one handsome package. And interior designers wholly agree – here’s what they have to say.

It’s easy to match with any interior

A major design no-no is for a home appliance to stick out like a sore thumb, especially if you’re talking about larger appliances like a washing machine.

But that’s not something you have to worry about with the Hitachi LINEAR washer dryer. All the interior designers we spoke to approve of this washer dryer, thanks to its stylish appearance and chic versatile hues that complement any interior – regardless of style or colour scheme.

A farmhouse-inspired kitchen is just one of the many interiors the LINEAR washer dryer fits into seamlessly; render by Ethereall.

Of course, you’ll also appreciate subtle designer touches like its sleek glass touch display (read: flat design with no protruding buttons!) and minimalist form. Edwin from EA Interior Design even goes so far as to call it “a designer appliance that stands out.”

The only question, then, is which colour of the appliance you should choose: Mauve Gray or White.

“Mauve Gray would be better for homes with a darker colour scheme, while White is more suitable for pastel/colour homes. A white-and-wood interior will work with either,” Cecil from The Makers Design Studio advises.

For small homes, it fits snugly under the counter

“Height wise, most other 2-in-1 washing machines are slightly taller, which makes them a little harder to fit into our designs,” shared Frank from interior design firm Design Story. This washer dryer, however, “is not as bulky, so it’s easier to fit under the kitchen counter.”

“Space is quite limited in BTOs, so I usually encourage my clients to get a front-loader. That way, you can have cabinets/countertop above, or even stack a dryer on top.” Frank from Design Story explains.

In line with Japanese design principles, the LINEAR washer dryer’s compact size and flushed look is unobtrusive, and will easily fit into your desired space – be it under the counter, in the yard or even the common toilet.

Those who need more kitchen space for cabinets can even consider placing the LINEAR washer dryer in their common bathroom; render by EA Interior Design.

A washer-dryer that also irons your clothes

Let’s face it – hanging out laundry to dry can look unsightly, even if it is in a hidden area of your home. And let’s not get started on how much time it takes to iron an entire load of laundry!

With this washer dryer’s Wind Iron technology, however, both become things of the past.

Not only does it dry your laundry, its high-speed airflow of approximately 270km/h allows stubborn wrinkles to be easily smoothed out – which means busy folks can wear their favourite clothes straight out of the washing machine. As for Cecil from The Makers Design Studio, it may just be one of her favourite features of the washer dryer yet.

It’s as smart as it is stylish

Not only does the LINEAR all-in-one washer dryer look good, it’s smart too.

Ever added too much detergent, only to watch in horror as the foam got out of control and/or to have stiff, scratchy-feeling clothes thereafter?

With the Auto Dosing System, you’ll never make a mistake again. Simply fill it with detergent and softener enough to last 24 full-load washes, and it will automatically dispense the optimal amount of laundry detergent and softener according to each load for the cleanest finish.

And that’s not all. With AI-powered 8 Wash Sensing, the washing method and operating time are automatically determined according to eight factors – such as the type of detergent used, temperature of the water and the type of material being washed. No more worrying about whether the settings are right!

“For its price point, I’d definitely recommend this to my clients. You get a washer, dryer and even an iron function!” – Danielle from Orange Interior.

Stylish, compact and with features that make the lives of busy homeowners that much easier, it’s no wonder all the interior designers we spoke to said they would recommend Hitachi’s LINEAR washer dryer series to their clients.
