Water island + bar counter
Submitted by Casey
My boyfriend's sink in it's natural state.
There actually isn't a lot that sucks about this setup – I love how enormous the sink basin is, because dishes seem to disappear in there until they get taken care of, and the grill at the bottom keeps the sink itself from getting really nasty. What sucks about the grill is that sometime a fork or some food will get stuck in it and it takes a minute or two to fish it out. Another thing about the faucet itself – it’s really difficult to adjust the water flow to anything other than full off or full on. Theoretically the lever is supposed to allow flow adjustment, but it’s so sensitive and the range is so tight that it takes three or four tries to get it at the flow rate you want (unless that’s full blast).
There's and opportunity here for the faucet to be more of a social centerpiece -- we throw parties and people will gather at the bar counter and talk to whoever's working at the sink or in the kitchen.
