Regular full-height cab for sink base?

Posted by sstrazisar (My Page) on

For aesthetic and space reasons, I'm wondering if I can use a regular 33" base cabinet with full height doors (no drawers) for my sink? Is there anything special about sink bases, other than options for false drawers, tip outs, etc. that I don't want?

You need a 36" base for a sink cabinet if you're using a 33" sink. And yes, you can do full height doors as long as the cabinet has the required support for the weight of the sink. Some people wouldn't care for the look that didn't match the rest of their cabinets with the drawer front then the door so be sure you like how that looks.

Thanks hollysprings. Sink is a 30", so should be fine in a 33" cabinet. It's next to a corner (hinge) cabinet, so it'd "match" there. I appreciate the input!
