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.
They provide functional flexibility and make a good alternative for stationary kitchen appliance. They are available in different models and offer block-styled tops to match the interior of your kitchen easily. If you have a portable dishwasher you can convert it to function the way undercounter does. Just remove the top surface wheels and side panels to convert the portable model into undercounter installation. You may need to purchase a conversion kit for this procedure.
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.
