Thread runs through my life, holding it together. What keeps yours from falling apart?
I voted for a double bowl which I have and love. Partly because I have 2 sinks in my kitchen and I wanted them to match. However, I'm currently loving the big farmhouse apron sinks and they are single bowl. So - how's that for helpful? g
Double all the way!! I have had both in my life, and a giant single sink sucks - you're stuck moving things out of the way. Sometimes I stack dirty dishes to soak in one side, but you can't do that with a single. Also, if I'm making a big dinner, I'll put all the compost items into one sink, the other sink being free to hand wash an item or what not.
I have a single (poor me!) not enough space. But at the Cafe where I volunteer we have a double, and its marvelous.
I voted for double. I have a single in our rental which is nice and roomy, but like Christina says you can't stack dirty dishes in one side and rinse stuff off, wash veggies, whatever, in the other. I will say that my mom has a double sink in her new place and the second half is *tiny*, and if I had to pick between that and a big single I'd go for the later - at least I can rinse pots without water going all over the counter like it does in hers.
When I have a do-over I will opt for a large single bowl with an off-set drain. This provides space for two entirely separate functions but still plenty of room for washing those very large roasters, pasta pots etc. I have had both. Right now the doubles are ok, but the off-set drain, which I have seen in commercial prep kitchens is the way for me. While they take up more space I think it is worthwhile, I will also go for the built in drain board.
Love, love, love an over-sized single sink! In my current kitchen I have 2 sinks, one giant single and a very large and extra deep double. I like both my sinks a lot, but really do prefer a single --- and it makes it so easy to wash and rinse large dishes and pots. I once lived in a rental that had a large single sink and I just kept a roomy speckled enamel metal tub under the sink and would set it in the sink and fill it with water if I needed to have something to soak dishes in --- worked great and was out of the way when not needed :DAnd you didn't ask this Elle, but wall mounted faucets are awesome!
Well, the sink will be on an island, so that means the faucet can't be wall mounted. I do love that look in a bathroom though!
We have a double bowl sink. I like to separate things :-)
Double bowl! Both deep but one deeper than the other. Cast iron, with the non stick/scratch coating, grey:)
I voted for single. But it has to be a BIG one, and you have to have either another sink somewhere in the kitchen or in a very nearby laundry room.I have a very big single sink by the dishwasher with a garbage disposal on it. It's great. Big enough to soak big roasting trays etc. But I probably wouldn't be so happy with it if I didn't have a second smaller sink in my kitchen island for soaking things or vegetable prep.
I voted double-I have never had a dishwasher and a double is necessary.
I agree that home-dec sewing saves a bundle, your pillows and bench cover are great. Love, love, love the dog. I once had a Jack Russel that was in every picture I took, whether I knew it or not.
It depends on how you work 'round the kitchen, really. Still, two sinks look nice and you do get a nice organized feeling just by looking at it. Work-wise, it offers a lot of room, since you get to organize when it's time to clean.
Well, that depends on how much work is done in that kitchen! Double sinks are great for anyone who does a lot of washing, as well as for any kitchen counter big enough or spacious enough for it. Single sinks are more ideal for people who like to spend time and use space preparing food, and such sinks are more ideal for smaller kitchens. Most people choose double-bowl sinks, however, mainly because these are more aesthetically pleasing.
Darryl’s right. It totally depends on the lifestyle of the kitchen owner. As for me, I really like to work on my kitchen and I usually do a lot of cooking that’s why I have a double sink in my kitchen. However, in my old apartment, I only have one and it suited me well because the place was small and I needed more space for stuff. =)
This is a subjective question; however, I’ll still answer. My vote’s for the single bowl sink. For a single woman, who doesn’t have many dishes to wash, I think that is more practical. I don’t have problems with the style since there are lots of options in the market. The double bowl, on the other hand, is the most commonly installed. In choosing a sink, besides some guidelines, you can only trust your own judgment considering your knowledge of the whole setting. :)Bibi Karpel
