I ran into a problem while installing appliances in my new kitchen. When I designed it I didn’t take into account that the dishwasher would have a handle (my old one didn’t). So now the top drawer will hit it. The other two will be fine. What do you guys suggest?
And while I’m here – a few before and afters.
Before (actually, right after I put a fresh coat of nice orange peely white on the cabinets about ten years ago)
About half way through demolition (Thanksgiving evening). The kitchen holds the washer and dryer – that was difficult to design around. I pulled out a couple walls that held the W/D and refrigerator – and frankly just took up space. It’s a fairly small kitchen and we wanted as much room as we could get.
Fresh sheetrock and paint and the start of 850 sqft of red oak flooring to go through the entire first floor. Notice later how I boxed out the drain pipes that were hidden in the original soffit.
First cabinets set. I built simple frameless cabs with shaker style doors.
All cabinets set. Still need to build cab for stacked W/D.
W/D cab, countertop, crown moulding and appliances in (except for dishwasher!) There’s a 6” deep broom closet on the facing-you side of the W/D cabinet. And flooring completed! Ouch my hands hurt.
Now it’s on to adding cabinet inserts and doors. Touch-up painting and we’re pretty close to home. Goal is to be finished by Christmas.
If I can just figure out how to fit that drawer in…
Oh – and in case anyone is wondering, that is a real cat.
