Kitchen remodeling appliance question


Hello - In process of kitchen remodeling and wanted to know if a dishwahser next to a refrigirator is okay ? That;s the design we have from our GC and right now the ref has a cabinet and then stove which was okay but with the new design, ref, ref panel and then dishwasher.

Not sure efficiency wise is this okay.

Appreciate any help on this..

no problem with it. The issue is that the dishwasher is next too but not too close to the sink for easy filling.

heat from dishwasher can slightly increase refridge cycle

Teach the kids/grand kids not to open the fridge door when you are loading/unloading the dishwasher. Depends on the door swing....

Be safe, Gary

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?

Most kitchen remodelers and designers try not to put them side by side. Not because of energy reasons but just the look of having two appliances next to each other. If your kitchen is small that may be the only layout option you have.

I agree with this.. Never liked the look of any appliances side by side.
