Kitchen sinks are used a lot so it’s worth learning about the different types of sinks.
Single vs Double Basin
Pros: No center divider so it’s easier to wash large items such as dogs, babies, large baking pans, and large pots.
Cons: Can’t separate clean and dirty dishes or thawing meat from other things
Pros: One side is dedicated to the disposal so you can wash veggies in one side and cut/peel in the other. It’s also easier to hand wash dishes…wash in one side and rinse/dry in the other
Cons: Harder to wash large pans, dogs, babies, and cookie sheets
Now, there’s one other type of sink and it’s a hybrid of the two listed above. It’s a double basin sink except the center divider is low. Believe it or not, they’re called low divide sinks. Some of our clients believe low divide sinks are the absolute best of both worlds as they allow almost all the benefits of a standard divide sink but allow you to wash large pots, pans, and baking sheets.
