Plate Rack Over Sink - Bad Idea?
I am in the process of planning a kitchen remodel and have loved all of the ideas and advice I've seen on GW. But I haven't seen this topic discussed (at least not recently).
I am planning to put a plate rack over my sink. I have beautiful Fiesta dishes and the colors should add a bit of a pop to the dark wood cabinets. This will have a small cabinet stacked on top of the plate rack and to make everything look right it really needs to be 6" higher than the cabs on each side of it. Otherwise the staggered-height cabs will look wrong.
But my concern is the plate rack will be 15" deep, since the cab above it has to be 15" deep to allow for the crown molding on the cabs on either side to meet up with the cab above the plate rack. Will that be sticking out too far and interfere with me washing dishes at the sink? I don't want to keep hitting my head on the plate rack!
Does anybody have this setup, with a 15" deep plate rack above the sink?
