    Personally we have a washing machine and a dishwasher in the kitchen. They are side by side, but not the same machine. Same make though.
    Does the washing machine also dry the clothes?

    I never knew such a thing existed. We have separate machines to wash and dry our clothes.

    I thought UK citizens who are super-rich, such as celebrities in the music and film businesses, typically reside outside the UK for tax purposes.
    Keep in mind when I said 'super rich' - Treasury reveals how little tax the super-rich pay | Society | The Guardian

    Why the super-rich love the UK | Society | The Guardian

    The Super-Rich and Us on BBC2: How much money do the wealthiest people make? Who are the richest people in the world?

    I know these are older articles but I can't find anything 'new' in amongst the election news. There's many more but I think that should cover it.

    When I was really young, I remember going to my great aunt's house. She lived in an old neighbourhood, in a house that was originally built in the 19th Century.

    Her house had a cellar with a dirt floor. The house had a furnace in a room, but there was no duct work, so the furnace just heated the entire house based upon dispersion of the heat.

    The bathroom, with bathtub, toilet and sink, was an addition onto the house. It did not get much heat at all.

    I learned later that many people did not have bathrooms in their houses here in the 19th and early 20th Centuries. They had outhouses in their back yards. They went to bath houses to bathe.

    An old public bath house was converted into upscale condos in the mid-90s. That neighbourhood has art walks monthly. During one art walk, I explored the ruins of the old bath house, prior to the renovation, along with some friends. We haven't toured the condos since they've been built. That same neighbourhood is where St Theodosius Russian Orthodox Cathedral is located. That was the church where the wedding scene in The Deer Hunter was filmed.

    You can get both here. Typically font loaders have both washing and drying capabilities. You can get a front loader washer and a front loader dryer separately. You can get top loader washer as well.

    Most go for the one machine because of space constraints which is a common thing in Europe overall.

    Here's a rather 'odd' looking washer/dryer that we had in Finland. - This is a 'top loader' but not like anything you've seen before. The 'drum' is sealed and it opens up to put the clothes in so it acts like a front loader. It washes and dries. It's very compact as well.

    That's cool! You're right. I've never seen anything like that, nor even knew such things existed.

    Finland typically puts their washers in the bathroom or other wet room if you have a separate one. Unlike the UK. :P

    The Finish/Scandinavian bathroom is a whole other discussion...

    Interesting, I have never heard of most of this stuff. But my grandfather also has separate bathroom and WC, his house is from 1960s so this was probably the thing of that time.
    Some new builds do this and I recall many in Canada that had this as well.

    What I have trouble getting used to is carpet in the bathroom and we even had it in the kitchen... so unhygienic!

    Most people here don't have carpet in bathroom or kitchen. Tile floor in common in bathroom. Kitchen floor is either tile or hardwood.

    That's the way it's gone here as well. Though you still run into carpet in bathrooms and kitchens here. Depends on the age of the place and the people living in it. Some people just love carpet... it's a bit of a UK obsession I think.

    There were many public bath houses here in the UK. They got a bit of a shady reputation.

    It wasn't until after WWII that toilets became common in new homes and it was up until the 70s that some older houses were still being fitted. I recall a documentary I saw recently that talked about whole neighbourhoods only having one or two toilets at one point in time that was publicly used. That was in the 1900s in cities.

    I am very happy things have changed so much for the better in this regard!

    Bathrooms and kitchens are typically tiled these days. It's more hygienic as it's easy to clean.

    People from my generation and younger would rip the carpet out of bathrooms and kitchens and put tiles or other flooring in.

    That's interesting, because my parents got a dishwasher in their house in 1975. The house was originally built in 1957. They tore out part of the kitchen cabinets and put the dishwasher in that spot.

    It's only apartments that usually don't have dishwashers here.
    When I got my first job in the USA, first order of business was to find an apartment with a dishwasher, washer and dryer😀

    Is your washing machine also a dryer? That's new to me! I've never seen a single machine that washes and dries clothes here.
    Pretty common outside the USA.

    Fairly common in the EU. Ours is like that but we don't use that function too often.

    My sister tried a front loader in Canada and it leaked. I never had that issue with them. I think she over loaded it.
    Most of the washers in laundromats here are front loaders. The washer in the laundry room of my apartment is a front loader. Three of my cousins have front loaders.

    I've never experienced leakage, nor have my cousins.

    I think you're probably right wrt user error with your sister's washer.
    I love front loading machines, very water efficient.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    Just to clarify here. Carpet means the whole floor is covered. Rugs are what you are referring to which is partial cover. (yeah we have two words for the same thing) Yes we have those in bathrooms, not necessarily in the kitchen. It is common in Finland to have them in the kitchen though.
