Right now we have the refrigerator in a room off of the kitchen with the washer and dryer. I like having the W/D in the kitchen but not the awkward placement. Stacking them may solve some issues.
tommy smythe "IKEA Pax closet" - I gave them a custom look with a few extras: crown moulding and genuine vintage doorknobs instead of pulls. I converted the tiny middle bedroom into a generous walk-in closet that would incorporate a stackable washer and dryer for convenient laundry access.
