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!

When on the IKEA page (linked here), scroll down and click on the “Assembly Instructions” link to download the instruction manual PDF file, or refer to the manual that comes with the product. Each step in the hack instructions pdf corresponds with each step in the original document, but with the appropriate modifications for the hack.
