First came the great closet struggle, now it’s the kitchen corner conundrum. We’ve got a domino thing going in the kitchen. Long story short, we are gutting the entire thing to make room for a dishwasher*. And we determined that the best place for the kitchen sink was a corner. We drew up a design and all was good. That is, until last weekend when one of my sisters-in-law dished on how much she disliked her corner sink.
Imagine spending tens of thousands of dollars on a kitchen overhaul only to be unhappy in the heart of your revamped home.
That is why renovating, decorating and designing leaves me like a deer frozen in the headlights. I really don’t want that to happen. I don’t want to
waste screw up this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
On the flip side, I fear this will mean everything in our new home will be bland and/or beige.
Anyway, my sister-in-law’s comment got me thinking and from that conversation onward, I pretty much surveyed everyone I encountered on their thoughts and feelings about corner sinks. Those who have or had corner sinks told me:
“It will feel cramped.”
“For a short person like you, Kim, it might be hard to reach the faucet.”
“It’s going to take up more space than you think.”
“The area under the sink will be completely useless.”
Uh, time to reconsider.
What are your thoughts on corner sinks?
*Based on the picture it might look as though we could slide in a dishwasher next to the sink, but we can’t.
