Compact kitchen unit looks like a desk when not in use, but the lid flips up to reveal a sink and two burners. Underneath there’s a drawer-style microwave, a small refrigerator/freezer and even a tiny dishwasher.
No more dishes in the kitchen sink! Load one while the other washes or just run a quick load of glasses. Two-drawer dishwashers are a favorite in kitchen cleanup. Install in addition to your regular dishwasher for double the dishwashing power.
• Hide it in a rollout base cabinet within one step of the sink, or no more than two steps away if it's in an opposing island. • Place an additional recycling bin on the rollout, or multiple bins on a second unit near the exterior door if your municipality requires sorting.
A custom cabinet, with rounded corners to match the vintage apron sink, holds two dishwasher drawers installed at either end. Sink: Ohmega Salvage, Berkeley, CA; 510-843-7368. Dishwasher drawers: Fisher & Paykel. Faucet: chicagofaucets.com | Photo: Mark Lohman | thisoldhouse.com
