Can't wait to see it painted with drawer fronts!
We removed the dishwasher in our kitchen project. Yes, that is correct. Removed it. I did try to come up with a design that would allow for a dishwasher space but I couldn't make it look good. So I gave it up.
We never used the dishwasher more than once or twice a year and then it was mostly so it didn't lose its seal, or so we believed. We lived with it for eighteen years so I think we gave having one a fair chance. I am amazed by the number of people who tell me they don't use their dishwasher but they have it "for resale" and I should have a dishwasher for that same reason.
A folly is a building that serves no useful purpose and is mostly decorative. The person who builds it doesn't call it a folly. It is others who see it as a folly. And that is the case with my giant honking drawer. I have wasted the dishwasher space in their minds. I have done a foolish thing. So we named my lovely honkin' drawer "donaleen's folly".
I don't think it is a folly (I think it is a great space) but people think I am making a mistake by not putting in a dishwasher "for resale". I think it is foolish to take away some of the best storage space next to the sink and use it for a dishwasher "for resale". Now THAT is folly.
The cabinets look better and I have valuable storage space next to my sink. To all of you who have a dishwasher "for resale", I say nana-naNana,
As William Morris said, "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."
