Kitchen sink drain location

Is it possible to find a kitchen sink with a drain in the back corner? This would allow one to push the cabinet plumbing to one corner and open up beneath the sink.

I know they have pushed the drains to the back of the bowl but this would be a step further.

Some commercial grade stainless steel sinks have drains in the rear, not necessary at a corner.

Look for ADA Compliance kitchen sinks. The drain is positioned at the back for wheelchair access. Try Elkay.com

Here are a few possibilities. If you plan on using a disposer, be sure you have a cabinet that provides enough room in the corner area for the diameter of the disposer and servicing it.

Yes, I bought an Elkay sink online that is 8" deep (~9.5" deep if undermounted) and has a right rear drain. I was able to move all the plumbing to the right hand side of the sink cabinet (36" wide) and put a full size garbage/recycling drawer (18" wide) under the left hand side. It's really convenient.

Good news. Had a similar situation with a client last year.
