Integrating the design of a procedure with the space where it occurs is crucial in guiding consumers towards desirable behaviours. Having a utility area for laundry allows consumers to keep their washing process contained and away from other household activities, such as cooking or entertaining.

This is unlike the UK where users were far more detached from their washing machines, often purchasing them as a convenience in their rented accommodation and having little control over how they were operated.
