A typical dishwasher is 24 inches wide, and you might not want to sacrifice that much cabinet space in a small kitchen. Don’t forget that you also need to make room for electrical wiring and water and sewer pipes in a nearby closet. Therefore, think about placing the dishwasher in the corner of the small kitchen. Corner cabinets are cumbersome and difficult to use because they are deep. You may not mind dismantling to install a new dishwasher. If the sink is near the corner of the kitchen, the process will be easier; You can connect it directly to the existing water supply.
Another option is to place the full-fledged dishwasher away from the sink. This isn’t necessarily efficient, but you may have some free space away from the sink and from traditional food prep areas that would be suitable for the dishwasher. Perhaps you have a bathroom on the other side of the kitchen wall opposite the sink so you can connect a water source from the area. You can also think about getting a narrow dishwasher that takes up less space or a portable dishwasher that you can store outside the small kitchen when not in use.
