Adding a Second Sink to Your Kitchen or Bathroom

So you’re thinking about adding in that second sink to your kitchen or bathroom?

There are probably many questions floating around in your head. A common first question we hear is “Where do I put the sink and will it be beneficial?”

Let’s start in the kitchen

Think about your daily routine. Are you constantly trying to keep up with cleaning while you’re cooking? With one sink you’re limited to just cooking or just cleaning. Two sinks gives you the ability to both cook and have a family member or friend clean at the same time. We’d say this is pretty beneficial.

Where should you put your second kitchen sink?

  • The island
  • Workstation
  • Wet bar
  • Next to the main sink
  • Baking station
  • Coffee station

The decision is up to you. Where do you see the second kitchen sink being the most help? Most designers like to put second sinks on kitchen islands because it’s an easy place for you to access while you’re cooking and out of the way of the main prepping areas.

Moving on to the bathroom

If your morning routine looks like a rush hour traffic jam, it may be time for that second sink. Having a second sink in your bathroom will benefit you and your family in many ways:

  • Increased efficiency
  • Increased personal space
  • Increased resale value
  • Wallet friendly

Where do you put the second bathroom sink?

  • Find a bathroom that has the space required for the extra plumbing and cabinetry.
  • Expand the vanity in your current bathroom and keep the sinks close so you can use a single water line.

Upgrading your kitchen or bathroom sink from single to double is one of the best renovations you can do. It’s fairly simple, affordable, and can help boost the resale value of your home.
