Using a Sink in Kitchen is a necessity in every Household. It can be used for Washing Hands, Dish Washing, and various purposes. The concept of using Sinks in Kitchen started from the USA but nowadays, it is used in almost every household across the globe. There are various styles in which we can install our sink in the kitchen as per our convenience.
Usually, the sinks are installed in the corner of the kitchen and near the windows. But, as I quoted there are many ways in which a sink can be installed. We can use two metallic sinks in near the corner of our kitchen and place a revolving metallic U-Shaped Tap in between those two and connect a two way key in between and get one of those connected to a geyser. So that the tap will supply cold water when the key is turned towards one end in one sink and it will supply hot water when the key will be turned to another end.
We can also use fibre or ceramic basin just like other basins and get it mounted on the corner of the wall to save space as well. Or we can even make a sink without getting a metallic sink by making a sink-shaped void on the kitchen slab and making a small drain in it for passage of water and connecting it to a pipe from the other side. It is also a cost-effective and innovative way of using the sink.
It is not necessary at all that we fix the sink in the corners only. If the corner of our kitchen is occupied with some other appliance or goods, then we can fix it anywhere in the kitchen. We can get our sink installed anywhere on the slab, be it above the cupboard or near the chimney. To make it look more attractive, we can use stylish taps of different patterns available in the market.
Also, if we don’t want the drainage pipe to be visible, we can get the pipeline connection underground.
In many households, there is a long metallic sink divided into two parts and without a tap. They use it just for storing dirty utensils or for drainage purpose. That also looks fairly decent. And many people use a jet spray connected to the sink for rinsing the utensils without getting to touch them with hands. Or else if someone doesn’t have to wash utensils in the kitchen sink and just want it for hand-washing they can use a washbasin instead just like we see in dentists’ clinic which is not so deep and appears to be flat. This idea is good for those who have automatic dish-washer at home or who don’t have to wash utensils themselves.
However, a sink adds to the beauty of a kitchen if it is kept clean and maintained. We should check that the tap over the Sink is properly fitted and not loose. Because it leads to leakage of water and a wet or muddy kitchen. There must be a hand wash and sanitiser kept near the Sink and also a Hand Towel placed in a mounted Towel Hanger.
In many Western Households, instead of assembling the sink in the main slab itself with stoves and other appliances, they construct a different small slab just for sink and for making it look decent, they construct a glass cupboard on the wall above that sink and a wooden cupboard with drawers for storing utensils small such as spoons, bowls, etc below the sink which adds to the beauty of the kitchen and also makes it look modular. To utilise space, we can get a power socket on the wall near the sink and can use it for various purpose like using a mixer grinder, juicer, water purifiers, etc.
As a conclusion, I’d say that Sink is a necessity in every kitchen irrespective of its structure and position. It’s our choice, which type of sink we want but there must be one find it at The Architecture Designs.
