We built an IKEA kitchen corner base cabinet to accommodate a regular corner sink instead of that horrible “bat-wing” sink they sell.

Our tiny kitchen using the IKEA corner sink hack came out beautiful with our 24 inch wide appliances. (Dishwasher is 18 inch). My sink is deep, I can set my stock pot in and with it being an under-mount, I easily wipe crumbs off the counter. My drawers light up too!

I thought folks would appreciate having some step-by-step instructions on how to create a normal corner sink install using IKEA cabinetry. We LOVE ours!
