Vintage drainboard sink over DW
I'm posting this thread because I have, on occasion, seen other threads where someone was asking if a vintage sink can be installed over a dishwasher, and I'd like to add this one to the GW collective wisdom.
I found pictures on the Old House Dreams website, of a custom remodeled kitchen, with a very well done (IMO) example. The DW and cabinets under the sink appear to be the same width (24"?), with the sink centered. The fridge cabinet on the right creates a break that's repeated by the left edge of the DW, and the upper cabinet appears to be the same width as the fridge cab. The whole group is centered on the window.
I think I would have used a paneled DW for an integrated look, matching the door/drawer fronts of the adjacent cabinets, but the owner may have wanted to tie in the SS fridge.
The kitchen is also a good example of the 'cabinets to the ceiling' vintage style. And since we all love vintage stoves, too, here is the stove wall:
