A number of years ago, I designed a very small, narrow kitchen that had been a closet. I made the base cabinets 18" deep. In order to install a dishwasher drawer I recessed it into the wall & created a ledge in the sleep alcove on the other side. The client loved it.


In this bathroom I created a ledge over footings. It continues along the exterior thru the shower

These are great ideas for ledges.
