kitchen sink cabinet size Sign In/Join 
posted
I have a kitchen sink that is 41 5/8 inches wide and I am putting it in the corner. What size cabinet would I need. The sink will be an under mount. Apparently I can't move forward till I get the correct size. I am also thinking I might have to get this custom build. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

That is a large sink for putting on the diagonal. Without doing all the math to be exact, you will have something like 2 feet of wasted space behind the sink. Not only would it be wasted space, how would you ever reach it to clean?

Take a corner of any room and make the angles on the floor or with cardboard boxes. Don't forget to allow for sink depth.

Its hard for me to even visualize a sink that wide! Standard size is 22" deep and 33" wide, and even in plastic, that is heavy. A sink that wide would need a lot of reinforcing structure underneath, which adds to the weight and to the mounting depth. You will need to build a supporting structure of 2x4s, or more.

On a job years ago the owner had a standard cast iron 22x33 sink mounted under a granite top. The cabinet structure gave away and I had to build a supporting structure of 2x4s under it.

To answer your question, I suggest you draw it out on paper. You can tape together pieces of newspaper to get a sheet large enough.

Oh, wait! You must be talking about the two bowl sink that has the third small bowl in the center for a disposal. As implied above, won't you will have difficulty reaching the faucet? Those sinks were usually not mounted in a corner in my experience.
