Help me with placement for a dishwasher
Our home is a 1200 square foot 1959 ranch home. The kitchen is 9.5' by 15.5' with three entrances, two windows, and a pantry type closet. It is a "U-Shaped" kitchen with barely room for an 18" dishwasher next to the refrigerator. I entertained the thought of a single bowl sink with a built in drainboard, but i do not want to spend $600 or more on one of those.
As soon as I can figure out how to post a drawing of my kitchen, I will do so.
Until then, the basic setup is this:
Enter through the kitchen door from the carport. The door hinges on your right side as you enter. Across from this entrance (9.5' across the kitchen) is the door to the den. To the left of the entry door is a window. In the kitchen to the left of the entry door is a standard Steelcase office desk, then the doorway to the dining room. now, to the right of that, on the far wall and just to the left of the den door is the pantry door. No pan past the den door to the right for the wall oven stack (24" oven). Next to that is the 32" cooktop. Then, along the back wall of the house is the standard size double sink. This is 15' away from the wall with the dining room doorway. Next, along the same wall as the entry door is the 36" "square" fridge/freezer combo. I came open the door to the oven while opening either the fridge or freezer door. I can also put ice in a glass from the freezer door ice dispenser and turn on/off the sink faucet. I am only 5' 9" tall, so you know this is a "1 butt kitchen" as I say.
