Kitchen sinks have been around for centuries or even millenniums. They are believed to have been invented by prehistoric man. After they invented the wooden bowl, these bowls were used to store water, and eventually were used to clean the other bowls.
Is this true? No one knows for sure. There is no denying the fact that the sink has a huge role in the modern kitchen. From food preparation, to cleaning up the mess, it has a part in all of this.
When choosing a kitchen sink it's important to take into consideration how you intend to use it. With the modern dishwashers that are available it's no longer a need to have a double bowl sink.
A double bowl sink greatly decreases the usefulness of the sink. By removing the center divider in the sink it opens up more possibilities to soak larger pans and dishes before they go into the dishwasher.
If you decide to have a double bowl sink it may be a good idea to not have a 50/50 split sink, but a sink that increases one bowls capacity over the other. For example a 60/40 or 70/30 split. This will also increase the usefulness of the sink without having to sacrifice the double bowl design.
If you prefer a certain sink style by all means pick what you like and feel happy with your decision, after all it is your kitchen and you know what you like. These are just some ideas to take into consideration, to help you narrow down your search.
