One of the design choices we made during our kitchen remodel was to have a cabinet front dishwasher, which is technically called a panel-ready dishwasher. A panel-ready dishwasher is specifically designed to hold a cabinet front.
I really wanted this option for our kitchen because I knew it would help to streamline the look of our cabinets. I love how it offers symmetry on either side of the farmhouse sink.
Many cabinet manufacturers will offer a matching dishwasher panel as an option, so be sure to ask about these options when you are selecting appliances and cabinetry if this is a feature you’re interested in!

The long bar on our dishwasher is a regular cabinet pull. It was purchased to match our other hardware and added to the panel for us by our contractor. It works great to open the dishwasher and doubles as a towel bar!
