Single Bowl Vs Double Bowl Sink

Aug 30,2021

The kitchen sink is the most common thing in your kitchen, and single bowl and double bowls sink essentially have the same basic function, but the ways in which they can be used in applications vary greatly. We will illustrate the differences between the two below, and you can determine which one is more suitable for you.

● Size

Talking about the double bowls with a tray, it has two basins in one unit, usually separated by a divider. The ideal size of the main sink is around 21 inches, and the other one is roughly 15 inches. The single basin sink is usually the same overall size as the double sink, but the difference is that the double bowl sink can accommodate two bowls, which can provide one bowl for the disposal and one for soaking. Also, you can use one bowl to clean dishes and another bowl to wash items. Besides, double-bowl sinks are available in a variety of sizes and configurations.

On the contrary, the single bowl with a board takes up relatively little space and it fits better in smaller spaces, such as smaller kitchens or kitchens with corner sinks. Although it can not provide two bowls, it is big enough to wash a big pan or pot inside. If you have a dishwasher in your kitchen, the trend is certainly moving away from double bowl sinks, then a single bowl with a tray is a good place to stash dirty pots and dishes, so your kitchen looks more orderly.

● Counter space

In kitchens with limited counter space, single-bowl sinks have an advantage over the usually larger double-bowl designs. You can not only wash dishes, but also dry or storage items on the other bowl. But a single bowl sink may reduce your washing space, but maximize your counter space, which is suitable for a small kitchen.● Installation

There is only one drain pipe for a single sink, so installation is faster, easier, and cheaper. In addition, it only needs one faucet, so the placement of the faucet is easier. The double bowl sink has two drains, which need to be connected before entering the waste collector. Thus you have to consider the place that you need to place your faucet, it is better to install it in a place where can fill both two bowls.


● Price

The cost of the sink largely depends on the sink’s brand and the material used, but a double sink is usually more expensive than a single basin sink of the same size and material made by the same company. Installation for a double sink tends to be more expensive because it’s more challenging and technically has two drain systems, and more material is used to make the sink and double sinks tend to be larger.
