Sink under window

Posted by kodak1 (My Page) on

I'm in the final planning stages of my new kitchen. Right now, the sink is drawn in the corner near the window. If I center the sink in a 30" cabinet under the window, I end up with two 9" cabinets. If the sink is not centered, I end up with an 18" cabinet, which is more useful. Does anyone have an off centered sink under their window? If so, can I see some pictures. Thanks.

RE: Sink under window

My sink is under the window and is slightly offset from center. It is a double bowl sink, and we centered the left (larger) bowl, so that the entire thing is a bit off center. It's very subtle... not sure if you can tell much from this picture.

RE: Sink under window

Mine is also off-center because of cabinetry constraints, and while you'd think it'd be glaring, nobody's ever remarked on it. I thought it would bug me like crazy, but I've wound up really liking the non-planned-to-death aspect of it. ;-) I did try to balance things out a tad by centering the large faucet with the window:

RE: Sink under window

I had a similar problem with my sink and window. I have a tad of OCD so I knew the sink and faucet need to be centered. We had quite a few 9'' options with Thomasville and finally decided on a 9'' pantry pullout and a 9'' cookie sheet organizer. I think both will be useful.

Sorry - no pictures yet. Cabinets should be in on August 1st!
