How to Design the Best Kitchen Sink Area

about kitchens and baths kitchen sink area

Design a kitchen sink area that provides you with comfort and convenience.

Your kitchen sink area should, first and foremost, be functional. Kitchens are spaces where we get quite a lot done, and by having a kitchen sink area that works as well as the rest of your kitchen, you can keep dishes clean and keep up with everything you need to do. That said, just because it has to be as functional as possible doesn’t mean it can’t look good and have an aesthetic that matches the rest of your kitchen.

Designing a kitchen sink area requires you to consider all of your needs ahead of time, but if you equip yourself with all of the proper considerations, it can be a rewarding experience. Let’s take a look.

Placement in Kitchen

Where do you want your kitchen sink area to be relative to the rest of your kitchen? Well, it can depend on quite a lot. Many people like to have their sinks near a window so that they can enjoy bright sunlight and some nature even while doing the dishes. If you have a dishwasher, you want to keep your kitchen sink close by to load dishes in easily. 

Pick Your Sink

There are so many options these days. Whether you’re considering a traditional, Butler-style sink or a more modern undermount design, you’re sure to find an option that fits your specifications. 

In terms of materials, you have a few considerations to make as well. While something like a ceramic sink can provide a classic look, it can be easily damaged—enameled cast iron offers a similar but more reliable style at a higher price tag. Stone sinks are nice but expensive. Stainless steel is a very practical option that has become more popular these days, and if you’re looking for a specific style, copper is a good alternative.

Which Tap’s For You?

We also see taps that are available in a wider number of options. That means deck or wall-mounted, single-mounted designs, bridge mixers, separate side sprays, and boiling taps. A boiling water tap can be helpful for a busy family kitchen that often needs to clean in a hurry and keep things moving. No matter what you choose, make sure it works for you and your family.
