Good Questions: Dealing with Laundry Facilities in the Kitchen?

Apartment Therapy DC reader Megan needs advice on coping with laundry facilities in the kitchen:"My husband and I are currently looking for a house to rent in the Tri-City area of North Carolina. All of the houses we are looking at are old with timeless architecture and beauty. But, we keep running into one thread that turns us off to these old un-remodeled homes. Why is the washer and dryer in the kitchen and right next to the counter? I don't want my food so close to my clothes, or at least, I don't want it to appear that it's so close! Any thoughts to Apartment Therapy readers about how to conceal a combination similar to this one or how have you made this work in your space? Thanks!"

Megan,

We see this a lot when visiting family in Europe, but haven't encountered this issue before in the U.S. so we're opening this up to our readers for ideas...
