There are many important decisions that need to be made when planning your dream kitchen. An experienced designer can make these decisions much easier.

One of the decisions that needs to be considered when our clients are remodeling a kitchen in Rhode Island and Massachusetts is where to locate the sink or sinks. The number of sinks is contingent on the size of the kitchen and intended uses. Homeowners that entertain frequently relish the opportunity to have more than one sink (and in many cases more than one dishwasher) in their dream kitchen.

Most homeowners opt to place the main sink below a window that gives them site lines to outdoors and mother nature and a second smaller prep sink in an island whose countertop space is used most often for meal preparation. Island sinks also enables homeowners to face guests while entertaining or watch children while preparing meals. Both options are a favorite of our clients.

The main sink used for cleanup and a dishwasher should be placed next to one another. That makes it easy to load and unload the dishwasher. We recommend placing the recycling and garbage bins in a pullout cabinet on the other side of the sink, making it easy to clean up.
