planning kitchen supply
i was looking at the fitting and valves at the store. so many choices . and idk just how i should lay it out.
i need to know what to get. and pic/s of how i should place things.

large single bowl sink, disposal. fridge and DW will be to the left.
i will be using plastic line for the fridge.
supply coming out from bottom of cabinet.

yeah, i know its not brain surgery. but i would rather ask and know. than to be guessing and hoping.

3/4" copper H&C pipes in the wall at the sink to shut off valves.
tap the cold for the REFR; tap the hot for the DW

I would think that 1/2" feeds to the sink would be plenty for what you are feeding and instead of teeing off the lines you could install dual outlet stops on the hot and cold to feed the refrigerator and the dishwasher. Just my thoughts...

Depends on the extent of your remodel as to how I'd pipe it.
2- 1/2 hots and 1-1/2 cold under the sink to supply the DW and kit. sink
A 1/2" supply at the refer.
If an outside wall- avoid freezing potential and pipe through the cabinet base

Be sure your waste is low enough and off center to connect the disposal

The water piping is the easy part you can get pex piping at your local box stores and yes like others said you could get away with half inch for both hot cold as long as your tapping into a 3/4" line for both. Tee off on the hot side inside the cabinet....drill a hole through the cabinet to the your drain hose from the dishwasher into the sane cabinetas the sink and connecte to deck mounted air gap..( check your local codes for the air gap and what they want). The box stores should have a water supply kit for a dishwasher which is braided and these days most dishwashers have a hose type of connection x 3/8"inch compression fitting. Also they do have half inch by 3/8 inch PEX stops / shut offs for your faucet (hot and cold). What is your plan for a drain / vent for the kitchen sink????
