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.

A: If you base cabinet is only 33″ I would think you would need a few more inches for the sink to be mounted to. I have used this sink in several houses we have built and looks amazing, but I also have a lot more room to mount the kitchen sink. Sharon M. Apr 5, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by KBos from If you love stainless, you will love this super deep sink! We installed this sink ourselves with the Kraus one-handle faucet I previously reviewed and a Kitchen Aid disposal (not sold at HD) and we have loved it from the moment we opened the box! It is super deep and the bowl on the left is monstrous! I can put my pans in there flat and wash them. For washing regular dishes we use the smaller side and rinse in the larger side. Our previous sink, builder installed, was 6 inches deep. Wow, what a difference. It is stainless, so you do have to combat water spots if you don’t wipe it down. But I spray a little Windex and it shines like a new penny. Such a great improvement for a reasonable price. Date published: 2012-10-23

Verified Purchase I was horrified when I looked at the price of similar over-sized style sinks at the plumbing supply companies and was a little leery to order such a big ticket item (with faucet) from an online company. This purchase made me a believer in O.com and the products they supply. Not only was the sink/faucet a fraction of the retail price of those I had been looking at, everything arrived in excellent condition and the description didn't lie. I don't think I could ever go back to a standard sized sink and faucet again. HOWEVER, make sure you have enough space between the sink and the back splash for mounting the faucet and using it's lever. We had to adjust the window trim because it stuck out from the wall. And unless you're handy, I'd suggest hiring a plumber for the install. Read More

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.
