There’s no question as to why double-basin sinks are one of the most common types of kitchen sinks. It’s the centerfold for a multitasking cook and cleaner. Especially if there is no dishwasher in the kitchen, double-basin sinks are perfect for washing and rinsing without any hassle. For the family meal-makers, double-basin sinks offer a place to put dirty dishes in the middle of meal prep while also being able to wash fruits and vegetables separately. These sinks come in many different materials, sizes, and finishes making it a viable and practical option for a busy kitchen.
This particular kind of sink is rising in popularity, especially through the influx of house flipping television shows. Taking tips courtesy of Chip and Joanna Gains from HGTV’s ‘Fixer Upper,' farmhouse sinks are a great combination of style and practicality. Farmhouse sinks are basically the extra-large version of a standard sink with a deep inset, allowing for a significant amount of space. Farmhouse sinks can be single, or double-basin is making them perfect for the chic dinner party hostess!
Sink Near the Stove:
Looking for a real chef’s kitchen? The space cannot be completed without a convenient extra source of water near the stove. Having a small, single-basin sink near the stove allows for quick access to fill up pots with water. Also, another place to wash pots and pans!
This last type of add-on sink is for the ultra-entertainer. Having a bar in a home is one thing: to store mixers, glasses and the beverages themselves. But, including a sink allows for a stylish and easy way to retrieve water for whatever the reason may be.
Other factors to consider for kitchen sinks are location and the inclusion of garbage disposal. If you’re able to have a garbage disposal, then it is a must-have for ease of washing dishes and trimming fruits and veggies. Also, finding the right spot that plumbing allows in your kitchen is equally as important. Having a window above the sink, giving a view to the city or to your backyard will let you daydream as you’re washing dishes.
