    I have ordered a KRAUS KHU100-30 30-inch 16 Gauge Undermount Single Bowl Stainless Steel Sink for my kitchen remodel. It is going into a 42-in W corner cabinet. Can anyone see a reason why this wouldn't work?

    I'm not sure what you're asking. I'm sorry

    What would really help is a photo of you cabinet layout.

    A corner cabinet begs the question, are the cabinets along 2 walls meeting in a corner, and is the sink going to be placed diagonally in that corner, or in the 42" cabinet on the right wall, or the left wall, of that corner.

    Thanks, Immensely!

    The sink is diagonally placed for functionality and the triangle works.

    Is the space between the DC3 and the pantry a door, window or breakfast counter?

    An honest question: Why would you be waiting for now to ask? And do you have some doubt that the designer that made that layout knew what he/she was doing?

    I'm not a fan of corner sinks, especially with cabinets over them. It's too closed in, you have wasted counter space in the back of the sink, odd counter space to the left and right of the sink, and anyone using the sink is going to be blocking those cabinets if someone else wants into them.

    :agree: but everyone’s tastes are different. My tastes are to have the sink look out the window. When we redid our house I moved the window so it would line up with the sink. I added spot lights outside above the window and love working there in the winter at night watching it snow. We have a couple small plants on the ledge (oversized sill).

    We often work side by side at the sink.

    That's why they make different flavor ice creams.

    Just making sure the sink that I purchased is going to work. Not necessarily that the design is flawed--I'm the designer :)

    It's a doorway into my dining room.

    That would certainly be the best option, however, we don't have a window in our kitchen. It sits next to the living room and the laundry room. No windows, just a big sliding door to the backyard.

    I like it, you are putting your plumbing in the most useless cupboard.

    I like the sinks in that configuration with apron fronts
