How to Create a Functional Kitchen Sink Area
June 11, 2021

Don’t you just love spending quality time in front of your kitchen sink? We didn’t think so.

By upgrading your sink with functional accessories, you can cut back on your sink time. The functional add-ons below make cleanup and meal prep a lot easier. And they decrease clutter, making your entire kitchen look better.

Consider a Workstation Sink

Consider a Workstation Sink

Workstation sinks contain an inner ledge that can transform your sink into a strainer, cutting board, extra counter space, and more.

Just lay your workstation accessories on the ledge and your sink becomes even more functional. Workstation sinks work especially well in small kitchens, as they add functionality without taking more space than a standard sink.

Double-bowl workstations are popular in kitchens of all sizes, as you can use one side as a sink and the other for meal prep or clean-up. When you buy a workstation sink from MR Direct, your workstation accessories, including a cutting board and rolling grid, are included with purchase.

A Built-in Soap Dispenser

A Built-in Soap Dispenser

The most common items to clutter your sink are soap bottles. They pile up, fall over, and cover your space with crusty goop.

A built-in soap dispenser instantly erases soap bottle clutter. And, you won’t have to deal with bottles falling in the sink when you’re trying to wash dishes.

You can choose the size and style of your dispenser to match the look of your kitchen. It’s an affordable upgrade that makes a big difference.

A Pot Filler

A Pot Filler

A pot filler is one of those accessories you don’t think you’ll need, but then you fall in love with.

It is an extendable faucet with a retractable arm. When you open it to its full length, it can reach your stove. This way, you can fill your pots and pans while they’re on the stove. You won’t have to awkwardly tilt your pot in the sink to get it under the tap, send water flowing across your countertop (oops), and then haul the pot to the range just to make a box of pasta.

A pot filler is highly recommended for big families and in homes with elderly cooks. If you have elderly guests (or plan on spending your golden years in your current home), a pot filler is a wise addition.

A Kitchen Faucet with a Sprayer Head

We all know the sprayer head faucet. But do you know how much it can cut back on clean-up time?

With a sprayer head faucet, it takes half the time to clean gunk off of plates and cookware, which means you cut your sink time in half.

Plus, you get less mess on your hands. You can’t deny it’s kind of fun too!

It’s easy to replace your faucet with a sprayer head faucet. If you’re tired of letting the tap run while you scrub away, then it might be time for an upgrade.
