I'd love to add a dishwasher to my fitted kitchen, but don't know how to. The worktops are continuous, and there is no plumbing point. Please give me some advice how to do this, and what kind of tradesmen could do the job? Many thanks!
A slimline dishwasher is 450mm wide. A full size dishwasher is 600mm wide. They are usually positioned near the sink.
Whoever carries out this work for you may need to remove an existing unit to make room. Also provide new plumbing (cold feed only), waste and an electrical socket.
If the unit you are removing is 450 or 600 wide you could use the door and have an integrated dishwasher, to match your units.
Post the job for a local kitchen installer to come and give you a quotation.
shouldnt be to much of a problem for a descent kitchen fitter to remove an appropriate base unit and fit a dishwasher
some where near the sink is favourite, to make it easier to pick up water and waste supplies. Electicity should be fairly simple to pick up from an existing socket somewhere nearby but should be done by a part p registered electrician
It sounds like you need a kitchen designer first to see what rearrangements can be made.or simply put the job on rated people, the trades looking at your job will know what they are up against.
Hi Fang the ideal place to fit a dishwasher would be next to the sink unit as you would easily be able to connect to the water and waste located inside the unit. It would mean removing a unit to provide enough space for the dishwasher and drilling a hole in the sink unit to feed the water and waste pipes through and then making suitable connections. A good kitchen fitter/ plumber would probably be best to complete the work. Thanks. Ed.
