Switching places: dishwasher and sink


We have a slab foundation and want to simply switch the sink to where the dishwasher is and vice versa. They are located right next to each other. Or, if that involves too much expense, how far can each be moved - one foot, two feet or more. Thanks in advance.

Offsetting the DW is not that difficult, but the sink is another issue. Since the pipes in the floor can't be easily relocated, offsetting the pipes can create spots(elbows, etc) that can be potential clog points. For both, you will likely have to tear out walls for access to pipes, wiring.
