Q: I’m planning an extensive kitchen remodel. I want a kitchen island with a bar sink. What features can you suggest to help me find my perfect island sink?
A: With kitchen island sinks, I can tell you that the good old-fashioned bar sink has basically evolved into a staging area for food and beverages rather than an actual workstation.
With this in mind, I suggest you think of your island sink as a focal point in your kitchen, and you take advantage of new bar sink design features.
Three categories to explore are:
▪ Material choices: Cast iron and acrylic are now popular material choices, as well as stainless steel.
▪ Shapes and mounting: Under-mount bar sinks with rounded shapes can make a dramatic visual statement.
▪ Faucets and accessories: High-end faucets and custom cutting boards also help keep a new island sink on the cutting edge of the latest design trends.
