Laundry in a cupboard is do-able but I would definitely go a separate washing machine and dryer.
Absolute pain not being able to put on a second load whilst things are going through the dryer.
We still had a laundry sink and small cupboard underneath the sink where we stored cleaning products. I think there was room for an ironing board, broom and vacuum cleaner as well if I remember correctly.
Have no idea what your budget is - but have a look on Pinterest as well to get some ideas and visuals of what other people have done.

I am a heavy user of the dryer (don't judge me). I'm just not sure how well both would fit.

Maybe we just need to get a grown up house.

Could you fit a frontloader with a dryer stacked on top in the cupboard? There are brackets available which will secure the dryer to the washer.

Yes ^^ my dryer sits on top of my front loader.
I couldn't imagine only doing one load at a time in a combination one, for hours! I often have both running at once.

If you use dryer a lot...I do. .no judgement here! !!... then those combo machines would be awful. I've had them in the past and the dryer is awful.
I would try stacking them..I have a front loader and my dryer is on top. Works great.

I'd also go for a condenser dryer. That's what we have and it is awesome. No more wet walls and windows, no more fluff everywhere and it is better on your clothes too.

Washer/dryer combos suck. One load take hours upon hours. I did get used to not having a dryer, though. Been three years now and rarely miss it (I went back to a top loader machine so no room for a dryer).

We have a European laundry/laundry cupboard and I hate it. I've had the washer/dryer combo and as others have said if you use the dryer frequently they are not your best option.
All of the issues mentioned already about laundry cupboards like storage etc can be managed if you are creating it from scratch. But the ventilation issue is a big one! I have to leave the doors open and they are not pocket doors so they totally block the way to the powder room. You can vent dryers through the roof though or get a condenser dryer.
