Home Trends from Ed Wang & Christopher Wannamaker

A hot new trend in kitchens over the past few years, that doesn't seem to be going anywhere, is the installation of workstation sinks. Popular in commercial kitchens, these sinks making their way into households across the country are like a multi-tool that allow you to prepare food for your meals and clean up in the same space. They often have built in accessories such as strainers, cutting boards and dish drying racks so everything is easily accessible and quickly and conveniently stored away. They are wonderful if you have limited counter and cupboard space but are also welcome in larger kitchens where function is a necessity. Because of their growing popularity, you should be able to purchase a workstation

sink that will match the size and style of your current sink. Drop in, undermount and farmhouse/apron front designs are all options available as are single and double bowls. The cost for workstation sinks tends to be higher than a typical kitchen sink because of all of the accessories included. However, many homeowners find the extra cost worth it as the functionality and efficiency the sink offers outweighs the price tag. Installation can be done by the average homeowner with an instruction manual and internet connection, but many suggest leaving the task to professionals as these sinks can be a little complicated to install depending on what style, shape and size you have.
