ADU Appliances Ideas


If you are building an ADU, you are probably aware that you are very limited in space. With such limited space, you need to get creative with the appliances you put within it. That is why we have put together a few great ADU appliances for you to consider placing in your new unit to save space.

Kitchen Space Savers

The kitchen is an essential aspect of any home, even tiny ones. However, it requires a lot of appliances and furniture in order to perform the way it is supposed to. These high numbers of appliances can be hard to squeeze into a small kitchen though.

Luckily though, there are quite a few space-saving appliances for ADU kitchens, including efficiency kitchens. Efficiency kitchens contain:

  • Cooktop
  • Refrigerator
  • Sink/faucet
  • Storage

All in one compact unit. You can also get things like:

  • Compact dishwashers
  • Small fridges
  • Over the range microwaves
  • Small ovens

These will help save space in your small yet busy ADU kitchen.

Laundry Appliance Space Savers

Laundry is a necessity that many ADU builders think they can do without. However, not long into living in the ADU, residents quickly realize how much they wish they had a way to do laundry in their homes.

To make sure your residents have a place to do laundry while still saving space in the ADU, you can invest in:

  • 2 in 1 washer and dryer units
  • Stackable washer and dryer units

Heating And Cooling Efficiently

Heating and cooling an ADU can not only take up space but can be costly if done incorrectly. To save you space and money, you should invest in a mini-split HVAC system that is ultra-silent and easy to install. These systems are more energy-efficient than central HVAC systems and window units.

Efficient ADU Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters are going to save you a lot of space and money. They provide hot water only when it is needed. They are a bit more costly to install at first but will save you loads of money over time.

Not to mention you won’t have a giant tank taking up space in your limited ADU.
