Running toe-kick under dishwasher?


Is it standard practice to NOT run a toe-kick under the dishwasher?

My thinking is it would obstruct access to the dw if needed.

It is not normal. The DW should come with a nice enough cover for the toe kick area.

Re: Running toe-kick under dishwasher?


My Dishwasher has an adjustable black plate that lines up perfect with the toe. If you had a traditional toe kick going across you could never pull the dishwasher out.



I admit when I was putting cherry toe under my cabinets I almost cut a piece and used construction adhesive to adhere to the metal leaving space for the screws. But I wised up

With your nice white toekick.... and if it is evidently visable/noticeable, I might face it off as RRMCCABE considered......

(Often the toe kicks are dark in color.... and the black toekick that comes with the DW is nit really noticeable.)

Attach a separate piece of toe kick to the dishwasher using magnets.

Very slick.

I think that dw piece is plastic. I might put some small acres threw it and call it a day.

Cut the toe kick panel to 3” tall (to clear the dw door swing) and Velcro’d it.

Thx for the ideas!
