Question Narrow sink in corner base cabinet ?

Hi, all. I seek your help. I'm putting a little Ikea kitchenette into a basement room, and would like to use the 37" corner cabinet to hold a narrow sink (Moen Camelot - bowl is 16 deep front to back but only 14 inches wide - really a large bar sink).

I see others have previously said the 37" corner base cannot be readily modified to hold a standard rectangular sink, but I am hoping it's more doable with this narrower sink.

Seems to me I have 12" wide of full depth available in the corner base and only need to find 2" more. Maybe I could scoop out the top of the base cabinet side wall enough to let the bowl sneak 2 inches into the next cabinet. Or if I moved the adjoining cabinet over by 2 inches, with a filler in front to hide the empty 2 inch gap, then the sink could rest on the top of the next cabinet. Does this make sense?

Any other ideas? (Unfortunately, the 49 inch blind base is too long for my space available. I have to fit in an 18 inch dishwasher and only have 56 inches total available in length.)

Thanks!!!

If you look at step #21, you will see the 37"x37" base corner is basically a 36+" base plus an 12" wide add-on.

I think your small sink can fit in the 36"+ wide portion of the cabinet.

Re: Narrow sink in corner base cabinet ?

Welcome to IKEAFANS, jancop.

A sink in the 37" corner is a bad idea, even if your sink fits in the cabinet. It can be done - it doesn't mean it should be.

Instead, try using a corner wall cabinet as your corner sink base - you can use a full size (25 x 22") single bowl sink in that cabinet. Do a search using my name to find out how to mod the corner wall cabinet to work as a corner sink.

Re: Narrow sink in corner base cabinet ?

Here are Chuck's instructions:

From Installer Extraordinaire Chuck, who I would quote, but when I do I get an error: corner sink
OK, here's the mod I used for Madeline and about 6 others. It uses
regular 25 x 30" corner wall cabinet, cut and installed as follows. The big advantages to it are it gives you nearly 18" of diagonal working space at the sink (while taking up only 37" off running wall space on either side, it leaves no dead space, and it allows you to use a full size single bowl sink.
Unfortunately, I've never taken pictures of this.

First off, keep in mind that the working measurement for this mod is still 37" x 37", just as if you were using the "regular" base cabinet.

When you begin to install the base cabinets, leave a 37" "hole" for the corner cabinet, and just place the two adjacent cabinets - don't actually secure them to the wall just yet. Make sure that the front "inside" leg blocks on these adjacent cabinets are set so they protrude into the corner space, as the cabinet will rest on those.

Assemble the corner cabinet using ONLY the top, bottom and 2 sides - leave out the 3 pieces that make up the back. Also, only use the two front sets of screws, cam locks and dowels in the top.

From above, drop the wall cabinet into place, and pull the cabinets together, so that you have a continuous run. Once all of this is done, cut out all but the very front 2" of the top of the corner cabinet, leaving yourself a 2" "rail" as in the other base cabs.

At this point, there will be a 12" gap "behind" the base cabinet. Have your installer fabricate a new "bottom" for the corner cabinet using a 36" square piece of 3/4" plywood. It will take a little "gymnastics" and patience to get this piece in place, but it leaves you with a cavernous space below the sink. A standard single bowl sink fits easily into this space.

Also, depending on the material you use for your counters, your installer may have to install wall cleats into the corner to support the tops.

If this isn't clear, or you have any questions about this, feel free to PM or e-mail me.

I'm hoping the OP posts a planner file link. I'll bet a no-corner plan (galley) might work better. My inspiration tiny kitchen:
