I'm looking to fit a dishwasher into my kitchen and have a couple of options about where to put it but each has its slight complexity.
The first option (and the preferred one in many ways) is to convert a current cupboard. However being a normal cupboard at the moment, the door opens the wrong way and it has a 'floor' and shelves that would need removing. Size-wise this option is ok but it is the feasibility of the conversion that puzzles me. Also, the sink nearby has some sort of compact waste system and would need a conventional U-bend and waste-hose junction fitted. It would also need the cold-water feed connections fitted to the pipes. I'm not too sure if there would be any issues with the plinth either. It is the location that is the big bonus for this option.
The second choice would be for a free-standing machine in another part of the kitchen, this is near to where the water-feed and waste are for the washing machine but the main problem here is that the waste pipe (of the large downpipe variety) has only room for one hose. I would presume that it wouldn't be too taxing for a plumber to fit in another pipe for the dishwasher though.
The second choice is definitely the easiest I would think but the wife does not really want the dishwasher at the end of the kitchen.
Any thoughts or comments welcome!
