A Second Kitchen Sink

Published on July 29th, 2015

As most homes start to move toward an open floor plan, the kitchens seem to expand into the living and entertainment areas of the home, which can only mean one thing, a second sink is an absolute must for a full functioning kitchen. Most homes have already started implementing two ovens, dishwashers, and even refrigerators, so a second sink doesn’t come as a surprise, to most. The only question is where is the best spot to place a second sink?

The answer solely depends on how and when you will use the sink. Adding a second kitchen sink provides the ultimate convenience, so you need to decide how your kitchen factors into your lifestyle. We have provided some tips and ideas below to help get you started…

Island Station

This added sink could be considering the most functional in a high traffic kitchen. The convenience of the placement of this sink gives you the option for an additional space to prep meals and added counter space so you don’t have to deal with dirty dishes piling up in the main sink area.

Coffee Oasis

Our love for coffee continues to grow and most people are starting to have set ups in the home. To supply this habit, having a separate coffee station could be one of the smartest moves you could make. This area could function as a breakfast or dessert area as well.

Wet Bar

If you are someone who loves to throw parties and entertain, this could be the sink for you. Instead of trying to fight the gathering crowd in your kitchen, consider a wet bar area separate from the kitchen so you can continue to pour drinks and keep the party going all night.

Pot-filling Area

Have you ever tried filling up a giant pot in your main kitchen sink? Chances are you have, and it wasn’t the most pleasant experience. The faucet is too low and can get in the way, and the sink isn’t deep enough. By placing a second sink next to your cook top with accommodating higher faucets you can prevent those heavy trips from the sink to the cook top and also prevent possible spilling.
