Can I put the dishwasher or the washing machine under the sink?


Reader's quiestion:

"I am wondering whether I can put the washing machine (or the dishwasher) under the sink and how"

Our answer:

  • Integrated dishwasher under the sink

Genarrly, you can not put the dishwasher directly under the sink, since this would bring the sink far to height. Alternatevily you can put the dishwasher in a cupboard beside the sink and under the drain board.

  • Integrated waching machine under the sink in the bathroom 

You can place the waching machine in a cupboard, next to a drop-in sink. Better option is to buy a compact washing machine or a washing machine of 45cm depth.
