Kitchen Designer Saved Me from HUGE Mistake!

Suzi AKA DesertDanceMarch 27, 2013

Today I got an email from my designer, asking if I realized that the trash Drawer would not be able to be opened while I was loading the dishwasher.

Nope! I did not realize that, so now, everything will be changing!

I would have hated that, had it happened and I'm very thankful she picked up on that mistake!

I'm happy my designer is a good communicator!!

Did the KD design it that way? I've caught a lot of mistakes my designer has made, mostly in measurements.

I designed it that way, sort of. The current dishwasher is on the left base cabinet wing close to the corner. I really wanted the dishwasher on my left, next to the sink, but to do that I had to move the sink more to the right, off center...

I got OK with the off center, but now there wasn't room for the trash on the right, so it had to go where the dishwasher once was, creating a problem I had not thought about.

Yep! Thank goodness it was caught!

The dishwasher will go where it once was, the sink back to center, and the Trash Drawer on the right.

Happy for you, Desert!

The $$ I paid my KD was totally worth it for that very reason. Saved me from some huge (design, not so much functional) mistakes!!
