Kitchen Layout Mistakes and effect on choice of Sink and Tap

Kitchen layout mistakes can have a big impact on the functionality and aesthetic appeal of your space, including the choice of sink and tap.

Here are some common kitchen layout mistakes and their effect on sink and tap selection:

1. Poor Workflow: A lack of counter space or poor layout flow can make it difficult to move around and work efficiently in your kitchen. This can impact the placement of your sink and tap as it needs to be in a convenient location for easy access. Consider placing the sink in an island or peninsula for easy access from multiple directions.

2. Inefficient Storage: Poor storage options can limit the amount of counter space you have to work with and make it difficult to keep your sink and tap area clean and clutter-free. A sink with a built-in cutting board and a Kitchen Tap with a pull-out nozzle hose may be a good option to maximize counter space and keep the area organized. See here for our Range of Sink Accessories.

3. Inadequate Ventilation: Poor ventilation can lead to moisture problems, including mold and mildew growth, which can damage your sink and tap. A good ventilation system, including an overhead exhaust fan or an open window, can help prevent moisture buildup and prolong the life of your sink and tap.

4. Improper Lighting: Insufficient lighting can make it difficult to see what you’re doing, particularly when washing dishes or preparing food at the sink. Consider adding under-cabinet lighting or pendant lights above the sink area to provide ample lighting for your work.

5. When things still go wrong :  Even with with the best planning, something can still go wrong as was the case with our own Kitchen, documented here.   and what we had to do to fix it.

Summary : When it comes to selecting a sink and tap, consider the layout of your kitchen and how it can impact their placement and functionality. For example, in a galley kitchen, a small sink with a low-profile tap may be a better option than a large, deep sink with a high-arc tap. In a larger kitchen with a central island, a larger sink with a high-arc tap may work well for food preparation and cleaning.
