Installing a washing machine under a washbasin
With a conventional bathroom elements, there is only one way to fit a washbasin above a clothes washer: place it at an uncomfortable height, to have enough space between the bowl and the washer for the drain and siphon. This model has been specifically designed to provide the perfect solution to save space in a small bathroom, and allows installation of a standard (slim-depth) washing machine underneath the washbasin.
Outlet pushed to the back, beats any space saving siphon !
The key is in the design of the basin: we have reduced the depth, and most importantly pushed the drain to a back corner so that the plumbing is moved to the back. The drain is covered it with a remoable soap holder, for a perfect aesthetics and usability, and the first 47cm of depth are free of any obstruction. The bowl is only 9cm deep, still quite enough to keep the water, but when placed above the washing machine it helps keep the total height perfectly comfortable for any adult - about 95cm.
A gutter, covered by a removable soap holder, brings the water to the outlet in the back right corner, where a standard siphon can be installed. This leaves the space under the bowl totally free to place the washing washing (or anything else if you wish !)
Fits all slim-depth washing machines
You do not have to get a mini washing machine or anything similar, just choose a "slimline" (also called "shallow depth" or "slim depth") model from your favourite manufacturer. Capacities go up to 7Kg, and models include washer-drier combinations.
Below a list of examples from various manufacturers - this list is just an example, it's in no way exhaustive and should not be considered a recommendation. Check your favourite search engine for available models in your area.
The space available under the wash basin is 60cm wide * 47cm deep. Standard washing machine height (European models) is 85cm. Anything that fits in this space should be Ok, of course front loading is compultory !

European legislation requires specific precautions for installation of a washing machine in a bathroom, with 2 primary rules:
- The washing machine must be placed in "zone 3" of the bathroom, more than 60cm away from the shower or bathtub
- Its electrical supply must be earthed, and protected by a 30mA RCD (residual current device)
Please check your local regulations with a qualified electrician before ordering.
