Kitchen Sink Orientation

Recommended Posts

I am wanting to place a double bowl kitchen sink with drainboard on the left when facing the sink, but it seems that all those in the Library have the drainboard on the right, and I can find no way to change the orientation of the sink and drainboard (like reversing the sides for handles etc on other units). Are there any sinks with drainboards on the left, or any way of changing the orientation?

Place the sink outside a cabinet. Open it and check Reverse Symbol. Then manually move it to your cabinet.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left. 

 

If you will post images and/or the plan file, that will help as well. Make sure it's closed in Home Designer first. You can zip it if it is to big to post.

Thanks Eric, I tried your suggestion (don't know how I didn't see the Reverse Appliances option earlier) but it still has a bit of a problem (whether I leave the sink in the cabinet or take it out before doing the switch). As shown in the photos below, when initially installed the two bowls are within the cabinet underneath and the drainboard overhangs the cabinet on the right. When switched, the drainboard and one bowl are within the cabinet and the other bowl intrudes into the cabinet on the right. I would like to keep the bowls within the cabinet and have the drainboard overhang the dishwasher on the left. I tried manually moving just the sink unit but it doesn't seem to be independently movable. Any ideas on how I can achieve what I need?

When you click on a sink in a cabinet, it selects the cabinet. Press TAB to select the sink. Move it as needed.

 

Copy then Reflect About is also handy for flipping things. I placed the 3 cabinets and sink on the right, then in plan view, copied them and reflected about a CAD line drawn between them.

The cabinets are to small for the sink

 

Make the cabinet 60" or more, drop the sink in it.

 

Then open the cabinet specification box, click on Front> check the reverse box
