Another option that is often overlooked is the 60cm dishwasher drawer which as its name suggests is a pull out drawer that houses the dishwasher. This can be in either a single or double arrangement. The advantage of this design is that it is easier to load and unload as you would not need to stoop as much. It also gives greater flexibility on where it can be located within the kitchen. Be sure to opt for the premium brands if you can as they tend to more reliable. Recently their dependability has improved as scope for their popularity in the future increases. The reduced capacity of this design is also a consideration and it is common for a kitchen designer to specify two dishwasher drawers as a result. And if you are a larger family there are wider 90cm versions available.
The ideal size for a small dishwasher is whatever width your cabinets are next to the sink. Standard cabinet widths are 12 15 and 18 inches. There are plenty of 18 inch dishwashers for about $400 each. They typically fit eight plate settings which would work for a family of three. 15 inch dishwashers are far and few between none of the major retailers has one. So if the cabinets next to your sink are 15 inches or less you may want to skip an under counter dishwasher all together and try one of the newer counter top dishwashers.
Both the above sizes of dishwashers come in three different configurations: freestanding semi-integrated or fully integrated. Freestanding is the most cost effective version and fully integrated the more expensive. The freestanding models are best used in separate utility rooms or where budget is a constraint as they tend to be bulky and unsightly. The semi-integrated model basically means that although the dishwasher front has an integrated kitchen furniture door the control panel is still visible along the top. This works well if there are drawers of a similar height either side of the dishwasher and thus the visual line is carried through.
