We just moved in to a new-to-us house (build in 1986), and I feel like the kitchen sink is "too" low. I've just learned that "standard" counter height is 36 inches; I measure 35 1/4" from the floor to the top of the counter/sink. I'd like to replace the sink and faucet, but I don't need to replace all of the cabinets (so no need to raise the rest of the counter height). What is a good option for creating a slightly higher sink?
It would be very non-standard to raise just sink, and probably more expensive unless the stove is involved.
The cabinets are just screwed to the wall. If you take everything apart you can just raise everything 2 inches or whatever you want. The trickiest part is the drain. You will have to remove a section of the old drainpipe and put in a longer section. Also, the water cables (which are flexible) may or may not have to be replaced with longer versions depending what is there.
If there is a gas stove involved, it could get complicated.
how about measuring the height, width and length of the bottom of the sink (and of course the height of a plastic container which is used in the sink to wash dishes), then finding a flat rectangular piece of plastic with that width and length, but the height will be the height of the sink minus the height of the dishwashing container.
just measured for mine. have no idea what it's called or where to find it, but it will be 5 1/2" x 7" and about 1 1/2" high. not much of a difference.
