ADU development is just the first half of your battle. Once you have it built, you need to find the right appliances to fit in the small space. That is why we put together this list of accessory dwelling unit appliances you need for your ADU.
Tankless Water Heater
Traditional water heaters have huge tanks that take up a lot of space in your home. These tanks hold hot water and have the job of keeping it warm. This causes them to use up a lot of energy as well.
A tankless water heater does not have a giant tank taking up all your space, and it only provides hot water when it is needed. By doing so, they can save you up to 60% on water heating costs and help you in your quest of going green while building your ADU.

Microwaves are a luxury we often take for granted. It is so easy to pop your leftovers in a microwave for a few minutes and have yourself a meal without having to heat up the stove. However, microwaves do take up quite a bit of countertop space that is quite valuable in a small room.
To solve this problem, many people mount their microwaves on the wall above their countertop to make more space. An even better solution is to buy an over-the-range microwave. This microwave can be mounted over the top of your cooktop because it contains a vent beneath it to aerate out your small kitchen. You get two super helpful appliances in one!
