From Wikipedia’s article about drying cabinets:
Since the 1980s, drying cabinets have been common in European laundromats, especially in the Swedish Tvättstuga – a laundry room in Swedish housing cooperatives. With the large size of the drying cabinets and relatively small size of European homes, drying cabinets have been almost exclusively found in self-service laundry facilities.
With the steadily increasing size of American homes over the past decades, the laundry room has increased in size and functionality as well. To meet the increasing demand for luxury appliances in the US residential market, a handful of appliance manufacturers (including Asko and Staber) have begun to supply drying cabinets for the home within the last few years. A typical residential drying cabinet is approximately the size of a narrow refrigerator, and is used to supplement traditional tumble dryers.
