Efficient, Stylish Kitchens Start With The Sink

July 2, 2008

(NewsUSA) - Today, home designers are taking the kitchen to an entirely new level.

Simplicity, attractiveness and easy maintenance are among the characteristics homeowners look for in kitchen design. If your goal is to make your kitchen more efficient, Kohler Co., a kitchen and bath product manufacturer, recommends starting with the sink.

A kitchen sink can be both functional and beautiful. Whether your kitchen style is traditional or contemporary, the sink’s design can make a bold statement and also make your life in the kitchen a little easier. Here are some suggestions.

* Divide and conquer. Using a double-basin sink makes separating and cleaning dishes and pots quick and easy. Kohler’s new Smart Divide sinks maximize the clearance between the sink-divider and faucet using a divider that is half the height of a conventional one. The new design gives homeowners the best of both worlds: double-basin convenience with the roominess of a single-basin sink.

* Find a multi-functional faucet. Think about convenience and durability when choosing a kitchen faucet. Pullout spray faucets are easy to use, provide greater flexibility when cleaning large pots, and make sink-cleaning a breeze. The Forté pullout kitchen faucet from Kohler has a spray pattern memory feature that stores the

last-used setting; a temperature memory feature that maintains ideal water temperature; and an easy-to-clean spray-face that resists calcium buildup.

* Accessorize. Accessories that complement the design and function of your kitchen sink - bottom basin racks, wire rinse baskets, cutting boards and colanders - will keep everything you need at your fingertips.
