STYLES AND COLOURS
How an appliance looks can have a significant impact on your décor. Tumble dryers don’t come in a massive range of styles like washing machines, but you can still find a stunning appliance that adds the wow factor to your home.
The majority of tumble dryers come in white, giving you plenty of flexibility for matching with existing appliances and kitchen cabinets.
There are also different colours available, such as black and silver, giving you a broader choice that lets you complement your kitchen’s style. However, more brightly coloured models – in red, pink or blue – are much less common, so if you’ve got your eye on a specific design, you may have to compromise on the machine’s features.
Front loading tumble dryers are the most popular types in the UK, and these have the most choice when it comes to the style of door. You can purchase models with opaque flat doors, or glass round doors.
Opaque doors are perfect if you’re after a subtle, low key look for the appliance. These can be either circular or square, offering a little more choice.
Glass doors are quite popular as you can keep an eye on your laundry. Doors are beginning to be designed with different colours of glass too, transforming the tumble dryer into an eye-catching appliance.
Some brands offer washing machines with a separate opaque front door, and a glass porthole door within. This gives you a stylish frontage to the appliance, but also allows you the convenience of checking on your washing without disrupting the cycle.
Brands invest a lot in their styling, which means that tumble dryers can vary between manufacturers.
Often, the more expensive the appliance, the more modern and elaborate the styling. If you prefer a more minimalist design, there are also plenty of models available that fit this aesthetic.
A lot of manufacturers design washing machines and tumble dryers to match, so it’s worth buying them from the same brand if you want a uniform look.
