As an essential part of your kitchen, your kitchen sink needs to be both functional and stylish. It also needs to be practical and fit within the space you have, which is especially important if you’re working with a smaller kitchen. Single bowl kitchen sinks are efficient, pragmatic and look great in kitchens of all sizes, but especially compact kitchens. Your kitchen sink gets a lot of wear and tear, so you want to make sure it’s the perfect fit for your lifestyle, and understanding the different options will help you make the most of this humble yet important kitchen component.
A Single Bowl Sink Gives You More Space
The perfect sink when you need more space for washing big pots and pans, as well as for soaking dishes.
It’s Low Maintenance
With only one bowl to worry about, cleaning a single bowl sink is often quicker and easier than cleaning a double bowl sink
Perfect for Washing Larger Pots & Pans
Ideal for washing larger items that may not fit comfortably in a double bowl sink, such as baking sheets or roasting pans.
Often more affordable than double bowl sinks, single bowl sinks are a great option for smaller budgets.
Types of Single Bowl Kitchen Sinks
Keep Your Kitchen Clutter-Free With a Drainboard Sink
Keep your countertop dry and clean with a drainboard sink, which offers a convenient space to dry dishes (and keep your bench clutter-free). It’s the ideal sink for people who often hand-wash dishes.
Protect Your Countertop with a Tap Landing Sink
Protect your bench from water damage while also giving yourself more flexibility in choosing the type of tap you want to pair and style with your sink with a tap landing design.
The Space-Saving Single Bowl Sink
Save space with a single bowl sink and create a modern and sleek kitchen design. Single bowl sinks are also the perfect choice for people who often use large pots and pans, or like to wash fruit and veg in bulk.
Create Your Own Unique Style
Design your kitchen your own way and choose from three on-trend kitchen sink colours. Whether you prefer a warm and rich gold tone, a sleek and modern gunmetal finish, or a classic stainless steel look, these colour options can help you create the perfect complement to your kitchen's existing colour scheme.
