Single bay sink more modern?


I will be putting in a new 7 foot counter top and was thinking of switching to a single bay sink. For one it gives more counter top space. And two, I think a single deep stainless steel sink looks more modern. Are more people making the switch or is double sink still more common to install new?

Personal choise. I like a double sink so I can wash on one side and drain the dishes on the other, or have some dishes soaking and still have a sink avalible to rince things off.

What does the wife say?

That is how you determine whether a 2 or a one bowl sink is necessary.

It is for a rental property. Unless we fall on hard times we will never live there. But, yeah the wife has all the say so on our house, even though I do most of the dishes. I think a smaller sink will look better in this specific layout.

If it's just a rental, go with the cheaper model sink then, if the tenants don't like that they have a double (or single) sink- too bad!
I think the single will be cheaper.

Bingo. My wife had some, shall we say, "unique" ideas for the kitchen in our log home, which we built almost entirely by ourselves. All the appliances are stainless steel. The countertops are black granite. She thought stainless steel sinks stand out too much, so ours is a single-bowl model that is black. Not metal, but some sort of composite material. The cooktop is also black. And to get to the loft area, we have a metal circular staircase that's painted black. The treads are diamond plate. I call the decor "rustic industrial."
