Hi, I've recently moved into a property which has this space in the kitchen next to the washing machine. Ideally I'd like to put a full size tumble dryer in the space as I don't think a 500mm dryer would be adequate. Currently with the mdf panel to left and the skirting board to the right there is a gap of 56cm which would clearly not be sufficient for a 595mm dryer. If the panel and skirting board were removed there would be a gap of 60cm which would be a tight squeeze, but could feasibly fit. I have 2 questions: Is the panel to the left performing any function or is it purely decorative to house the washing machine? Will removing this cause any issues? Would there be any issues caused by butting the dryer right up against the washing machine or is that a perfectly reasonable arrangement?
