Should You Add a Second Kitchen Sink
During a Renovation?

Everyone needs one kitchen sink, but what about two? As with all decisions you make during a remodel, there are pros and cons to adding a second kitchen sink. The final decision will depend on several factors.

Adding another sink is one of the biggest trends in modern kitchen design because of the function and convenience it gives your space. Benefits include saving time while cooking, giving your “sous chef” a place to help cook and clean dishes, enhancing the room’s beauty and style, and the return on investment when you decide to sell the home.

How busy is your household? Do you love to cook and entertain? Imagine being able to prep and cook a large dinner without dishes piling up in your way. However, it may not be worth the cost for someone who rarely cooks.

The next consideration is the size and layout of your kitchen. In a small space, the second kitchen sink would be more of a hindrance than a help, taking away valuable counter space. That being said, if you’re preparing for a kitchen renovation with Dimension Design-Build-Remodel, our design plans will certainly include improving your layout to make any desired amenities possible and optimally positioned. If there’s simply no room for another sink, other solutions can be discussed, such as adding a pot filler over the stove.

One more complication could be the difficulty and cost of the plumbing. Second sinks are often installed in islands, but they can also be added adjacent to the first sink or in a separate food prep area. Even in a large kitchen, the best place in your layout to add a second sink might cause installation issues and increase your budget. Again, if you’re working with us, we will discuss every option to ensure you’re getting the best kitchen for your needs and budget.

Many times, the second sink is not the same as the first, because the two serve different functions. When you decide you’re going to add a second kitchen sink during your renovation, we’ll work with you on the choices that come next, including the size, style, and material of your new sink.

Are you ready to make your kitchen work better for you? Call Dimension Design-Build-Remodel to get started.

Not only is Wisconsin weather harsh, it covers the full spectrum. Pelting rain, raging wind, hail, snow storms, zero-degree winters and hundred-degree summers, dry to humid and back again—our state has it all. The best Wisconsin roof shingle options will need durability to survive the elements.

In Waukesha County alone, there are many different styles of homes, and not all shingles are suited to every home. The ideal shingle choice for you will depend on your home’s age and style, your aesthetic preference, and your budget.

What Our Customers Say

For our house in Brookfield, we hired Dave with Dimension Design-Build-Remodel to renovate the master bathroom.

Dave was a great contractor to work with in all facets (planning, pricing, demolition, remodeling, and finishing work). He has a design background so he was thoughtful in making suggestions to the architect's/professional designer's plans. He communicated often and was always available to answer questions (even on a Saturday morning).

This project came in on time and within budget. Dave was the first contractor I have worked with that did not “change order” me to death. While we had changes to the project, and pursuant to the contract he could have issued/charged for a change order, Dave did not charge me because the changes did not increase the cost of the project.

I had a safe installed in shelving with doors made to match the woodwork in the room. The safe installation was a pleasant experience and there was a lot of respect for the pets that also reside in my home. The carpentry and all work was done with extreme professionalism as well as respect for my schedule. I will recommend and also use again. Thanks for a job well done.

Thanksgiving Fun Facts

  1. The first Thanksgiving was actually a three-day affair.
  2. Colonists and Native Americans may not have had turkey at their feast.
  3. Part of Plymouth, Mass., looks just as it did in the 17th century.
  4. Sarah Josepha Hale, the woman behind “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” convinced President Abraham Lincoln to recognize Thanksgiving as a national holiday.
  5. The first Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade didn't feature any balloons.
  6. A Thanksgiving mix-up in 1953 inspired the first TV dinners, as a Swanson employee accidentally ordered 260 tons of Thanksgiving turkeys. To deal with the excess, Swanson filled 5,000 aluminum trays with the turkey, along with cornbread dressing, gravy, peas, and sweet potatoes to complete the offering. The 98-cents meals were a hit, especially with kids and increasingly busy households.
  7. Americans prepare 46 million turkeys for Thanksgiving each year.
  8. America’s first turkey trot took place more than a century ago, hosted by the local YMCA in Buffalo, NY and included six runners. Today, around 1,000 turkey trots took place around the country.
  9. Most Americans prefer Thanksgiving leftovers to the actual meal, as nearly eight in 10 Americans agree that the second helpings of stuffing, mashed potatoes, and of course pie beat out the big dinner itself.
  10. The Butterball Turkey Talk Line answers almost 100,000 calls each season.
  11. Americans east an estimated 50 million pumpkin pies on Thanksgiving.
  12. Black Friday is the busiest day of the year for plumbers, with Roto-Rooter reporting that kitchen drains, garbage disposals, and toilets require more attention the day after Thanksgiving than any other day.
