Re: Creating a dishwasher cabinet
Most dishwashers are installed in a gap (usually 24" wide) in the cabinetry spanned by the countertop; there is no "cabinet" per se for the dishwasher. The dishwasher rests on the floor and the top of it fastens to the underside of the countertop.
Here's an example of what I'm talking about: http://pleasepardontheinconvenience....ountertop-day/ look at the first picture.
Since the dishwasher will be mounted against a wall, you'll probably want to make sure your sink cabinet is at least 24-3/4" away from the wall; trim the wall side of the DW with a 3/4" wide board. You'll want to have at least that much clearance between the DW door and the wall.
The IKEA cabinets are to match the modular, "furniture-style" cabinets that IKEA sells.
