Can anyone recommend one please? I have a new house with a utility room and I'd to be able to dry laundry in there without taking up loads of space with a floor standing airer. I'm looking at something like this but not sure if it's the best option. Any recommendations?

That looks really good!

Do you pull an individual rod down to hang clothes then it goes back up? Or does the whole thing come down then get pulled back up like the pulley one?

One by one.

I would personally go for a wall mounted drier much better quality and better price.

I like the traditional pulley one in your OP. It get the laundry up high out of the way and it dries faster up high.

My parents have the wall mounted one and I'm not a fan to be honest and I'd need a step to reach to it as I'd like it up high! Toying with the idea of that one John posted now...

I love it as my ceilings are low and a lovely one like in your OP would stop us using the hall when it had washing on it. My one isn't beautiful and isn't as robust, but it's functional and neat and comes in a selection of different sizes.

We have the cast in style one (one layer, six lath ) . It is fab! Best thing in my house. Can fit 2loads of washing on it quite comfortably.

Whenever I stand on a stool in my kitchen, I can't believe how warm it is. It's so good to know that heat isn't being wasted.

I'm now wondering abojt this one as it seems to have lots of hanging space. squiggle how wide is yours?

I've been thinking about one of these for a while too but wondered if the clothes would be dangling too low from our standard height ceiling?

I recently got this Brabantia indoor drying line and I'm really pleased with it. We've put it in our bathroom (v small utility room so no room to hang laundry in there) so we like the fact that it's unobtrusive when not in use.

I have the cast iron kitchen maid - have always had one in each of my houses (Edwardian, new build and 1950s). Love how quickly laundry dries - visiting friends and relatives are always amazed as how effective it is. The length means I can dry sheets and towels easily.
