I will be having my kitchen remodeled next summer and am doing some advance planning. I am thinking of switching from a double-bowl sink with a garbage disposal, to a single bowl sink without a garbage disposal. Is it still possible to hook up a dishwasher in this situation? Thanks for your help!
Yes. You do not need the disposal to have the dishwasher.
In our last place - shortly before we moved - we installed a single bowl sink with a disposal. It worked just great! Having garbage sit around (anywhere in the house) was not an option in our opinion, so we wanted a disposal.
The single bowl sink the same size as a double bowl sink is an option whose time has come. How else can you handle large pans and the like? We purchased the matching chrome plated wire grid to set in the bottom of the sink so it would not be damaged by oversized objects. That protected the fiberglass sink.
IMHO the double bowl sink became obsolete when dish washers were invented.
In case you did not know, we are in the process of moving to another town in CO; should be completed in about a month.
I still tend to wash a lot of things by hand as it is often just one or two of us eating/cooking. Pans always get washed by hand, so might as well do the few dishes too. So I like two deep sinks.
Anyway, I think a great compromise sink (for people like me), is a single, large, two level sink. A deeper smaller bowl within a larger sink. So one can soak or wash items without wasting water by filling a large sink, but still have the room in a large one if needed.
