British expat Jordana Grace is shocked to find Australian homes have laundry rooms

British expat reveals the ONE thing that confuses her most about Australian homes and flats: ‘It’s such a culture shock’

  • British writer Jordana Grace has experienced ongoing Australian culture shock
  • While inspecting the houses for rent, she asks where the washing machine was.
  • In the UK most washing machines are kept in the kitchen due to lack of space
  • But Down Under, most homes have separate laundry rooms.
  • Ms Grace was completely blown away by what she was told

A Briton who moved to Australia has shared the bizarre difference she noticed when looking for accommodation to rent: washing machines are rarely fitted in the kitchen.

In a TikTok video Titled “Aussie culture shock”, comedian Jordana Grace re-enacted a conversation she had with an estate agent while inspecting the kitchen of a Sydney apartment.

Ms Grace asked the officer where the washing machine was and why it wasn’t in the kitchen – but was shocked after learning most Australian homes had utility rooms equipped with both a washer and a dryer.

Most UK homes have washing machines under kitchen worktops due to limited space and power sockets in the bathroom.

‘I don’t see the washing machine in the kitchen,’ Ms Grace said in the reconstructed video to which the estate agent said: ‘The washing machine is not in the kitchen.’

Ms. Grace was then shown the “large” laundry room in a separate area of ​​the house.

“Yeah, it’s a bit small but it gets the job done, and most Australian homes have it.” And it’s so hot you won’t need to use the dryer, so you’ll save money,’ the agent told Ms Grace.

She was also blown away by the fact that Australians tend to avoid using the dryer and hang their clothes on a washing line.

The humorous video has since been viewed more than half a million times and received hundreds of comments.

“I was shocked too, laundry rooms are my favorite,” one person wrote.

Other Australians seemed puzzled as to why some British and European homes put the appliance in the kitchen.

“British houses aren’t big, there’s no room for laundry rooms in many older houses and kitchens already have plumbing,” another Briton added.

In another video last year, Ms Grace described the drive down as a kind of ‘casual Hunger Games’, which doesn’t reflect the stereotype that Aussies are happy and relaxed.

She explained how merging on a freeway is a “terrifying” experience as drivers prevent other cars from entering the lane.

In another video last year, Ms Grace described the drive down as a kind of ‘casual Hunger Games’, which doesn’t reflect the stereotype that Aussies are happy and relaxed.

“Do you know that lane that helps you get to the highway? I found that in Australia they tend to be quite short which in itself is terrifying,’ she said in the video.

“But as you speed up, looking over your shoulder to try to find space to slide at the Aussies will speed up to try and throw you off the road!”

“Okay, so don’t run out of the way, but they won’t let you in!” You have to learn it! If you can get in and survive, you’re welcome to stay.

Ms Grace went on to explain another aspect of driving in Australia that annoys her, relating to the flurry of courtesy thanks you usually receive after leaving another driver in the lane.

“You know when you let someone in and you get the wave of courtesy to say ‘thank you? I rarely have that!’ she says.

“If I let you in, I want the wave!” I want to wave!!!’
