Prep sinks can be a great addition to a kitchen island, laundry room, tiny home or trailer. These small pieces can be used to chill down beverages and wash dishes while some of our other options are big enough to function as a primary sink. Whatever you choose, make sure you have done some preparation before purchasing, like measuring the counter where you will eventually place the sink. It is also good to know if you would like a topmounting design, where you can see the edges, or an undermounting sink, which creates a more modern look by hiding the sink's edges beneath the countertop.
If you are looking for something on the small side, to wash a few dishes or pieces of glassware, then the Houzer Prep Sink or the Zuhne Wet Bar Sink are some great options. Both are compact, while the latter is also an undermount design, which will give you a contemporary look.
The Sinkology Sisley Copper is a great piece if you want something that is truly eye-catching, and the patina changes according to how it is used, so it will be truly unique to your home.
Finally, the Ruvati Workstation and the Forious Workstation Sink are our most versatile options that come with several different attachments and add-ons to consolidate all of your kitchen duties in one place. They are both made from stainless steel and have different sized options to choose from.
