Our home did not have a dishwasher or a garbage disposal. I had come to accept I would never have either. While starting our kitchen renovations my husband just asked me, “Would you like a dishwasher?” I thought to myself is this a trick question! Ha-ha! I said to him, “Seriously?” Dale was willing to install a dishwasher since we went with Formica and not the granite counter tops. I then asked, “Can we have a garbage disposal too?”
My husband install the dishwasher first, which entail making space for the dishwasher, extra plumbing and electrical work.
New Whirlpool dishwasher.
As much as I dislike taking away storage space for a dishwasher; I must say, I am enjoying my dishwasher. Thank goodness I have a good size pantry to make up for that.
I don’t mind washing dishes by hand from time to time, but having a dishwasher comes in handy when we have company. Now I just stick the dishes in the dishwasher and their out of sight!
(Dishwasher purchased at Lowe’s.)
Thank you for stopping by the Phillips Place Renovation, have a good day!
