Description
The dishwasher is located next to the sink. The L-shaped counter is at standard height. Around the corner is a lower cabinet with drawer for storing cutlery, dishes, cups and glasses.

Users comments
The user chose to have knee space under the sink. She can roll in there, open the dishwasher on one side and the drawers on the other side. Unloading the dishwasher is easy. The cutlery basket in the dishwasher is at the same height as the cutlery drawer in the cabinet. The same applies to the dishes. The user also has her own counter at a convenient low height, see associated tip.
