What to Consider When Selecting a Sink for Your Kitchen
70% of all kitchen work takes place at the sink.
A kitchen sink is the workhorse of every kitchen. We spend more time in front of a sink than in any other kitchen work area, therefore, it’s important to consider both its function and design. When selecting a kitchen sink style for your home, consider the way you work in your kitchen. Take some time to answer the following questions:
Do you work left-to-right or right-to-left when using a kitchen sink? If you select a double sink, you may want the larger sink area to your right if right handed or vise versa if left handed.
Do you do a lot of hand-washing of pots and pans? Make sure to select a sink that has the correct depth and width if you do.
What is your height and reach? If you are petite a deep sink may not be the best chioce.
How much counter space do you have in your kitchen?
The sink and counter should provide an efficient work area for both food prep and cleanup.
The rule is to make sure that the sink takes up no more than a 1/3 of the kitchen space.
