Appliances that will make your home less of a squeeze


Floor space has become a much valued commodity particularly if you’re an urban dweller in Asia’s growing cities.  And trying to outfit your live-in  ‘shoebox’ with all the usual appliances for the modern home will inevitably be a challenge for most. Here are some compact Electrolux appliances that can fit in most spaces while still delivering on performance.

Washing machine and dryer

If you’re space conscious, a washer-dryer hybrid will do two jobs in one machine, eliminating the need to find enough room for two appliances. If you’d still prefer to keep your appliances separate, a front loading washing machine will allow a compact or portable dryer to be stacked on top to free up floor space.

Recommended model:

EWW12470W - washer dryer

EWW12470 – Designed for small homes, this washer-dryer hybrid has a 6kg drum capacity for washing while incorporating the ability to dry 3kg of clothes at a time.

EWF85661 - STD

EWF85661 Time Manager – This front-loading washing machine is the smallest of Electrolux’s Time Manager range, while still managing to wash up to 6.5kg per cycle.

Cooking hobs and hoods

In a small space, compact freestanding cookers might be preferable since they not only combine a cooktop and oven in one machine, they are also versatile when it comes to placement. Built-in stoves can be made to measure, but might prove troublesome to replace with similar size models should they eventually need replacing.

Smaller kitchens also don’t require cooker hoods with powerful extraction, so a smaller but equally efficient hood will do just the trick.

Recommended models:

EKM5542X_255 - freestanding gas cooker

EKM5542X – Tailored for Asian cooking, this 50cm by 50 cm freestanding cooker manages to still feature 3 gas burners and an electric hotplate on its cooktop. A gas oven below meets your baking and grilling needs

EKE5643X_255 - freestanding electric cooker

EKE5643X – Another 50cm by 50cm cooker, this model with four electric hotplates and electric oven does not require the installation of a separate gas supply.

EFT9510X - slim Line hood

EFT9510 Slim Line Hood – This 60cm cooker hood is designed to look stylish while minimising space consumption. It’s also easy to clean and maintain.

Vacuum cleaners

Generally, a vacuum that can be stored in small spaces and  taken out easily for use would be the way to go.  . Most of the time, short bursts of cleaning throughout the week is good enough to keep things spic and span in a small apartment, so  look to minimise the time and effort required in getting that cleaner out.

Recommended models:

ZB2901G - Egorapido 2 in 1

The Ergorapido 2in1 range – These cordless vacuum cleaners are designed for easy handling and cleaning. Charged in an upright position, they minimise the space needed to store them in while being easy to just grab and use. A smaller handheld vacuum cleaner can be detached from the stick to handle more localised messes.


UltraActive compact

Ultra Active – If you’d like more suction power and versatility with vacuum brushes, the Ultra Active features superior handling and cleaning performance while retaining a sleek, compact design specially tailored to minimise the effort required in taking out and packing a vacuum cleaner into small storage spaces.
