To DW or not to DW, that is the question
I'm remodeling a small duplex apartment that we own and intend to rent out, that we bought at the beginning of the year. When the tenant in this half moved out, we decided to paint it and replace the vinyl flooring in the kitchen/dining room. However upon removing the vinyl, we discovered the floor and sub-floor were soaked and delaminated. We needed to remove the existing cabinets to remove and replace the subfloor. We are finally now past all that and starting to rebuild the kitchen using (free) cabinets that a friend removed in a recent remodel.
The kitchen is small, and we have a very limited selection of cabinet sizes to use to put the kitchen together. After trying to come up with a layout using both corner lazy susans for some time, I finally came up with the following which seems to maximizes the use of the space:
- 24" base cabinet (one drawer, two doors w/ pullouts)
- 18" base cabinet with 4 drawers
- 30" base cabinet (one drawer and two doors w/ pullouts)
and a 30" wide range and a 28" wide fridge.
However after coming up with the layout I realized that I could put a 24" wide dishwasher instead of cabinet # 4.
So will a DW work layout-wise in that location, will it work plumbing-wise to be around the corner like that, would a DW be preferable to having more base cabinet space?
Thank in advance for any thoughts.
