CAROL'S FAVORITE THINGS: ACCESSIBLE KITCHEN SINKS

  1. Elkay Drain Fitting - This offset drain creates an additional 12-3/4" of knee clearance for sinks without garbage disposals. ($114)

  2. Elkay Gourmet (Lustertone) Stainless Steel Single Bowl Undermount Sink - The center rear drain position installed together with an offset drain provide additional knee clearance. The Perfect Drain is an edgeless drain that eliminates the accumulation of crumbs and gunk. Undermount, 23-1/2" x 18-1/4" x 5-3/8". ($662, sink only)

  3. Rachiele custom-made apron front stainless steel sink with offset drain - Similar to the ever-popular custom sink seen in my Magnolia Mid-Mod and Pioneer Square projects, Rachiele sinks are available in standard brushed or rustic matte stainless steel with the option to add a hammered texture to the apron only or to the entire sink. The sinks can also be made with "signature ledges" which allow you to set cutting boards onto the ledges for ultimate flexibility. For those who desire a garbage disposal, a custom sink will allow you to place the disposal as close to the rear wall as and far out of the knee space as possible. Apron-front, custom-sized. (Price varies.)

  4. Moen 1800 Series - The rear corner drain is helpful when a garbage disposal is desired. Undermount, 23" x 18" x 5-1/2". ($294)  

  5. Kohler Vault - Clean lines and square corners coordinate with modern architecture.  The super-slim edge can be top-mounted or under-mounted. At 6-5/16" deep, this sink basin is deeper than the Moen and Elkay options. Use in combination an offset drain for maximum knee clearance. Dual-mount, 25" x 22" x 6-5/16". ($679, sink only)
