The Workstation Kitchen Sink

A stainless steel workstation kitchen sink.

Between food prep, clean-up, and many hand washings throughout the day, most of your kitchen time is spent in front of your kitchen sink. It is imperative that your sink is a well-functioning space. With an inefficient sink, hosting a holiday gathering or preparing a family dinner can have you pulling your hair out.

A workstation kitchen sink transforms your already much-used sink into a truly user-friendly appliance by incorporating custom fit sliding cutting boards, drying racks, colanders, and grids into the design. This product can be a game-changer in the kitchen.

Choosing the Right Material for Your Home

Classic heavy-guage stainless steel as seen in the sink on the left (above) is the most popular workstation material. But there are also other materials to consider. Think about what will work best with your lifestyle and taste.

A granite composite sink like the one in the middle is a unique choice that is exceptionally sturdy and offers color choices not found in other sink materials. Black is a trendy choice that adds a pop of sophistication. 

Fireclay is a beautiful, old-world material that is extremely durable.  This versatile sink option shown on the right can look either vintage or contemporary depending upon the faucet and other accessories you choose to pair with it. 

Getting the Most out of Your Workstation

Coordinate. Think about coordinating faucet accessories such as an instant-hot tap, filtered water faucet tap, and soap dispenser along with your main kitchen faucet, so that your whole workstation area is really working for you.

Bigger is not always better.  A very large workstation sink might take up too much critical countertop space. A smaller sink might work best for you.  Luckily, they come in a variety of sizes to fit your needs. 

Measure, measure, measure. Be sure to measure and know your kitchen cabinet size before shopping for and purchasing your kitchen sink.  (Do not let your eyes deceive you — the sink cannot be bigger than the cabinet you want it to fit into!) 

Spend more time with your family and less time frustrated with your kitchen. Your next holiday gathering could be a lot more harmonious with the addition of a workstation sink.
