A case of the double sink

A case of the double sink

The kitchen in Indian homes is a sacred space, an important part of every home. It's where our meals are prepared, and the dishes washed. In effect, we end up spending a significant amount of time in the kitchen. In such a scenario, a convenient kitchen would really help. So, how about accommodating two sinks in the kitchen? Yes, this two-sink concept is trending in our country now, though it is very popular abroad.  

A simple concept, wherein two sinks are designed side by side in a kitchen, as opposed to one. A double-sink bowl offers the option of washing the dishes in one, and thawing and washing vegetables, meat and fruits, in the other. You can also use the sinks to segregate vegetarian and non-vegetarian food items while preparing to cook the meals. These sinks also come with a drier, thereby allowing you dry your dishes.

The advantages of a two-sink kitchen are aplenty, especially when you don't have a dishwasher. For instance, you can prioritise cooking over doing the dishes; place heavy utensils or dishes in one, and use the other sink for other purposes; divide the tasks among family members, thereby saving time. Such intelligent kitchen ideas, based on our lifestyle and convenience, are a welcome addition in an urban set up where we are hardpressed for time.

In the two-sink space, there are a variety of options available in the market. While the premium brands are offering double-bowl sinks in various models, two separate sinks can be bought and put together with a countertop, which allows you a say in the size of the sinks, depending on the space available and individual requirements.

Agreed, the cost of the double-bowl sink can be quite prohibitive, but the convenience it offers makes up for it. That said, if this idea is executed with proper planning, it is definitely worth the effort.
