33" sink base/33" sink


So the standard sized 33" double bowl stainless sink fits snugly in a 36" sink base cabinet.

In my latest kitchen 3" really make a difference to the layout.
Does anybody have experience modifying a smaller sink base cabinet to fit a standard size sink?
I think I can jigsaw the cabinet sides down a bit to give room for the fasteners and make it work.

Yes, I know they make smaller sinks, I don't want one.

A "standard" single bowl kitchen sink will fit inside a 30" sink base; maybe even a 27".

I had a wife like that once too.

Yes ,you can cut the sides out of the cabinets for the sink to clear.

cutting the sides of the cabinet, like other people have said will work fine. The only hard part I have had doing that is attaching the clips for stainless sinks.

Sometimes you need sink clips close to the corners as possible. That may mean not just cutting out some of the sides. You should just cut the side in half so you will have as much room as possible. Secure the top with angles or flat brackets.
But the next cabinets will/may lose the drawers. Change to center slider?
