Prep and Bar Sinks and Faucets

The Prep Sink or Bar Sink is simply an auxiliary sink used for small tasks such as washing hands, or rinsing glassware. Sometimes located outside of the Kitchen, as a wet bar, or another room where you like to entertain and gather.  When located in the kitchen, the small sink is often called a Prep sink.  This often allows two people to cook together and not crowed over one sink.  When in the kitchen, often this sink might be connected to filtration, near a stove, or just strategically placed to maximize efficiency. 

The faucet used for the bar or prep sink is equally important. Typically the faucet does not need to be too tall, and is generally less ornate compared to a standard Kitchen faucet.  Most often, these faucets will be a single hole configuration.

Currently the most common  choice for a new kitchen sink is the single bowl undermount. 

In the past decade, Solid Surface counter tops, such as Quartz, Granite, and other various stones, have become closely priced compared to laminate tops. When offered an option between a laminate top and a similarly priced solid top like quartz, most people choose the latter.  

With a solid surface top you now can use an undermount sink. 

Most new Kitchens are designed with using a "sink base cabinet". This can be a corner base ( commonly 30", 36", or 42"), or a linear sink base that measures 24". 27", 30", 33" or 36". Larger and smaller options exists, but they are not common. 

 With this information, now lets look at the single bowl and double bowl sink options. Single bowl options are available from as narrow as 10" wide, all the way to 57" wide - and larger. However, double bowl sinks generally start around 30" wide, and are common at 32"-33" wide, 

Simply stated, More sink options exist for a much larger demand of cabinet sizes.
