The price is something else you might be happy about. Even if you are changing your kitchen in a set price range you should be able to find the dishwasher you want at an affordable cost. Standard model dishwashers which most come in white or black go for as low as $150. If you aren't buying your things in a preset budget but looking for the dishwasher to compliment your kitchen you might be looking to pay a bit more. High quality dishwashers sell for $1000.
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.
Size up your options. While most conventional dishwashers are the under-counter type which are 60cm wide there are more compact options out there for those that want to save kitchen space. First off there are 45cm machines which have a capacity of around a third of a full-size dishwasher. That still amounts to around 20 pieces each of crockery and cutlery though so it's often an economical option for small families. Table-top dishwashers are also available for kitchens where space is at a real premium.
The other alternative is of course the more standard 60cm wide model that should easily provide for the needs of a family of four. Good dishwashers nowadays are quite efficient and usually include an eco cycle that whilst shorter still cleans lightly soiled crockery glassware and cutlery easily. The shorter cycle also makes it practical to do more than one load as long as you are happy to cope with a sink full of dirty dishes until then. The alternative option would be to site the dishwasher in a separate utility room where the dirty dishes can be hidden out of sight; especially useful in the open plan kitchen/living/dining spaces of today's modern home. However the compromise of locating the dishwasher in the utility as opposed to the main kitchen would involve more of a trek between the two spaces when loading and unloading; these are options to discuss with your kitchen designer. For a large luxury kitchen used by a big family two full size dishwashers may be specified.
So let's talk dishwashers regular size dishwashers before we narrow our focus down to small ones. A standard size dishwasher is 24 inches wide 24 inches deep and 35 inches high. Any dishwasher 18 inches or narrower is considered small. A standard dishwasher can clean 12 place settings at a time and this same size is considered big enough for a family of four. Before you go shopping for a dishwasher of any size you need to be sure there is room to install it even if its only 18 inches wide. Dishwashers almost always need to be installed next to a sink. But even if your kitchen is so oddly set up that you can't fit a dishwasher next to the sink you can still go with a counter top dishwasher. More on those in a moment.
