So, my dilema is this. We are installing a dishwasher in the cabinet by the kitchen sink. YAY! Be happy for me. It's my very first dishwasher!
Don't look at the ugly floor, rugs, wall, cabinet and the heater! Picture Coconut white
Shaker cabinets. Yes. That's it. Now, picture the dishwasher going in this cabinet
at the end of the sink counter. Picture my sink cabinet base being smaller than it is now.
It has to be. Or, I won't have a full size dishwasher. And, because the cabinet base is
smaller, the sink has to be smaller. Hence, my dilema.
A larger view of the sink area. I currently have a stainless steel double bowl sink
and since the new base cabinet is only going to be 30", the new sink will have to be
either a single bowl or a sink and a half. My preference is for a sink and a half as
I'd still have two bowls for separate uses. I am still planning on stainless steel too.
My question is: What is your experience with single sinks or sink and a half style sinks,
and do you prefer the larger bowl on the left or the right if you have the latter style?
I will have my dishes stored to the left of the sink area so when hand washing it makes
sense to wash in the right side and rinse in the left. I guess I'd just have to get used to using the
right side more often.
I'd appreciate any help in this matter as I need to order a sink asap. The cabinets have been ordered
and hopefully will be ready by the first or second week of June.
The upper cabinets are going all the way to the ceiling and there will be no bulkhead. There will
be an open display shelf above the window. The floors will be heated ceramic tile, which I haven't
picked out yet, and the back splash will be ???? I haven't even started looking. Any recommendations??
We are rather thankful we aren't in the middle of this reno this week, as we had hoped, because
it's been so rainy and cold and we plan to bbq a lot if we can and eat on the deck. Hopefully
June will be better weather for that!
Please leave a comment about your experience with sink and a half style sinks.
And also, on back splashes. Do I match the ceramic with the floor? I might like
small glass squares or white subway tiles. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks so much.
See you soon.
