Your Sink Doesn’t Have to Go in a Traditional Place

Do you wish you could rearrange some things and put in a corner sink? It is easier than you may think to put on in the kitchen or the bathroom. They look very unique and get attention. They also allow you to use the space in that room the way you want to. If you have a corner of the room that isn’t being used for anything, just visualise the sink being there!

Practical

Many bathrooms and kitchens have what is referred to as dead space and that is where you can put a corner sink. If you have a large kitchen, you may be interested in putting one in as a second device and not in place of your main wash basin. This can be perfect for washing vegetables and other food prep work.

More Counter Space

When you have a corner sink, you will free up more counter space. This can make your kitchen or your bathroom flexible for your needs. Nothing is more frustrating than feeling like you have to squeeze everything into a space that is just too tiny for what you have going on. You don’t have to move and you don’t have to just deal with it. Changing your basin location can help.

Another way to get more space is to install corner cabinets under the corner sink. They have to be the right dimension and you may need to get them customised. Sometimes, you can buy a complete unit that has both. Don’t let the space under the basin though just be open and unusable. Always maximise what you have access to and put it to use.

Lighting Control

One of the complaints people have in the kitchen is the basin always seems to be in front of the window. This can make it hard to do the dishes or other uses of it during the daylight hours when it is shining brightly. It can also cause the basin to fade and then it looks old and dingy. Perhaps you would like to use the window lighting to grow your own herbs but the sink is in the way.

With a corner sink, you don’t have to let these issues continue to be holding you back. It is all about your convenience. Your kitchen and your bathroom should be set up in a way that is most efficient for you and your daily needs.

One or Two Basins

There are quite a few designs for you to take advantage of. You can go with a one basin or a two basin look. Of course they are going to be smaller than your typical sink due to the set up. There are various sizes so you can find what suits your needs and what will work well in the space you have available. As you look around you will formulate an opinion about what you are after.

Resell Value

With a corner sink in place, your resell value of the home is going to increase. Potential buyers will notice these unique options in the house. They are going to stand out above and beyond the other homes they look at. This can help you to get an offer quickly and also help you to get the best price for it. They aren’t going to want to see it slip through their fingers.

In the meantime, you get to enjoy this type of set up that is original and very convenient. You may wish you had done this change a very long time ago! It doesn’t have to be expensive and it doesn’t have to be a drawn out project.
