Disguising his old dishwasher.

It wasn't much to look at, and it made a lot of noise. But designer John Krause's dishwasher still worked well when the time came to remodel his kitchen. Unwilling to invest in an expensive, quieter model, Krause came up with a money-saving strategy anyone could use to disguise an older appliance.

Krause made his entire counter a couple of inches deeper than normal so his dishwasher could fit behind the doors of stock cabinets. The leftover space in tbe dishwasher's double-wide cabinet contains narrow shelves for soap and cleanser.

When Krause wants to muffle the dishwasher's noise, he runs it with the cabinet doors closed.
