I'm just worried about those tiny under the sink models you see everywhere.
Unless you have a house large enough for a separate laundry room (which is unlikely), your washer will most likely have to be a front-loader under the counter in the kitchen. I'm afraid that's just what you get in UK houses and flats - there's usually no room for anything bigger (or anywhere else you can put it).
My parents do actually have a separate utility/laundry room, though it still has a counter along the wall, so the washing machine is under the counter (another Samsung EcoBubble - they have the 8kg, while I have the 9kg model) and the dryer sits on top of the counter above it.
In my new house (3-bedroom, semi-detached), I have space for just one white goods item under the counter in my kitchen (no laundry/utility room)... so I had to choose between purchasing a washing machine, a dryer or a dishwasher. I went with a washing machine
. I did splash out on an American-style fridge-freezer though
