How to do I add more cupboards to space where washing machine used to be?

I'm moving my washing machine to somewhere else and I'm left with a space that I'd like to add some shelves etc. What are my options?

"Have a look online and purchase a 600mm unit ( assuming your washer is 600 wide )to fit in where the washing machine was , this unit can be configured how you like ( shelves pan drawers etc ) . This will be the most cost effective way otherwise a carpenter would be able to construct something bespoke but it will be more costly"

"You can add a base unit with shelvesand doors, same width as your machine. Also you will need a new kick board, as the machine space has a cutout. Hope that helps.

"There are a few things we can do with that space. We can certainly put shelving in their, possibly putting in a new back to the space to hide all the pipework that supplied the machine previously to make it a bit more asthetically pleasing."

"If it is under a kitchen counter, the simplest thing would be to buy another base unit and fit that."
