A Workstation Sink Will Change Your Life

Not just for cleaning dishes, your sink could serve as a chopping, drying, and straining station, too.

While kitchen sinks generally function as a dumping ground for dirty dishware or a place to clean hands and rinse produce, they could be doing so much more. When counter space is at a premium, turn to your sink to offer a bit more functionality as a versatile and modular workstation. Read on for our favorite ultra-functional workstation sinks.

Delta Lorelai Workstation

This workstation comes in a variety of sizes to fit your kitchen and is available as an undermount (resting below the countertop) or top mount (which drops in over the countertop). The included accessories—an acacia cutting board with a phone holder and a dish rack with a utensil holder—slide across the workstation ledge for a seamless transition from prep to cleanup. Plus, it comes with a protective bottom grid and push-to-close drain. From $450 at deltafaucet.com

Live in a rental or aren’t up for a full-on sink replacement?

These accessories work with your existing sink to give you some precious counter space back.

Five Two Over-the-Sink Drying Rack

Not only does this drying rack neatly roll out onto your sink—eliminating the need for a cumbersome countertop rack—it’s also heat safe up to 550°F, so it’s a quick-fix trivet. The utensil bucket doubles as a bitsy colander for single-serving fruit or vegetables, and when you’re done, it easily stashes away in a drawer. $45 at food52.com

StoneWon Designs Over-the-Sink Cutting Board

It doesn’t get much sleeker than this over-the-sink cutting board, which comes in two standard sizes and three luscious wood tones (walnut, mahogany, and ambrosia). It also features a built-in strainer for rinsing, catching peels and skins, or preventing spherical fruits from diving off the sides. $350 at westelm.com
