...because home doesn't happen overnight.

Since phase 1 of our kitchen upgrade is well under way, it’s time to start thinking about the next step.  With all the DIY and thrifting that we do around here (not to mention working), we’ve saved enough cash to replace our builder basic kitchen countertops, sink and faucet.  We’re 90% sure that the perimeter countertops (which support the sink) will get switched out to granite.  So, we also want to upgrade the sink and faucet. 

I’m really digging the undermount sinks.  They look so easy to swipe crumbs and messes into because they’re flush with the counter unlike our current top-mounted sink. 

I also like the look of a single basin (with no divider) but that wouldn’t be practical for our household.  Since we have 2 kiddos, a lot of daily dishware requires handwashing and air-drying.  I let those things air-dry in the second basin.  So, two basins it is; although they need not be the same size. 

And as for the sink material, I think a high quality, thick gauge stainless steel would suit our needs best.  (Those copper sinks are way cool but totally out of our price range!)

Here are some sinks that float my boat. 

 

 

 

And since we’re talkin’ sinks, how does your sink look or function?  Do you work left-to-right or right-to-left?  For those inquiring minds, I wash in the right basin, air-dry in the left basin and load my dishwasher to the right of the sink.
