60 40 Kitchen Sink

The etymology of the phrase “everything but the kitchen sink” probably has to do with the fact that the sink is difficult to move. For instance, if a person absconded with “everything but the kitchen sink,” it means he or she made off with every conceivable portable item. But here is a new way of looking at the term: What if said person didn’t take the hypothetical sink because it was too necessary to the kitchen? When you think about it, there are very few features in the home that are used as often. And what other home item performs as many different tasks? It could be argued that the selection of a sink is one of the most important kitchen choices you will make — and it’s a decision that will affect your daily life for many years to come. We spoke to designers who belong to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) about how to select the right sink.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo pgeis Will the sink be a comfortable depth? Good question, and if you are doing your cabinets at the same time, you can have BOTH a deep sink and a comfortable height. Standing straight and and tall, measure the distance from your wrist to the floor. Do the same for that other person you hope will also be doing dishes. Surprisingly for me, this was about the same measurement for my tall husband and for me — and for us, significantly higher than the standard counter height. Then install that section of cabinets so the height of the installed sink bottom will be comfortable. For us, that meant the counter-top was higher than standard — easy to do with custom, and not that hard to accomplish with stock cabinets by making the toe-kick space taller.

Sink AccessoriesPros: Sink manufacturers are making the sink work harder with myriad accessories built to perfectly fit on the lip of the basin. The choices include cutting boards, prep bowls, knife blocks, colanders and racks for dishcloths or cleaning utensils. These items can centralize and organize prep work.

Olga Adler Cons: To achieve a perfect fit, it’s best to buy directly from the manufacturer. If you subscribe to the “basic is better” school of thought, sink accessories are not for you.Burcher says since the accessories are usually designed to be removed for cleaning and when not in use, where to store them has to be considered. He also notes that if a sink manufacturer doesn’t make the accessory you want, a designer can have it custom made.

Kitchen Sinks Cons: This sink can take up a lot of countertop space, although the prep areas it provides may make up for that. Because it’s so involved, this option is not for the casual cook. The industrial look makes a strong statement.
