1 good idea: shallow kitchen sink as work surface

Cathy Grunfeld

Spotted in the left hand corner of this Corsican kitchen, a sink so wide and shallow that it can be used as a “wet” work surface, to wash and pare the artichokes or any other vegetable. Shallow sinks fly in the face of usual thinking of “the deeper the better”. For deep sinks make us have to bend over and work in an uncomfortable position, whether it be washing dishes or cleaning lettuce. We prefer shallowish sinks, our ideal being the custom-made one our friend Margot Wellington had made for her East Hampton kitchen, which allows her to pile dirty dishes at one end, and prep food on the other.
