HOW TO PLAN FOR TWO SINKS IN THE KITCHEN
- June 18, 2017
If you are planning to remodel your kitchen in the future, you should definitely consider installing two sinks. A double sink formation can significantly enhance your kitchen’s workflow.

BullRun Kitchen and Bath is here to assist you with some tips on how to incorporate dual sinks into your kitchen when remodeling.

You can be able to talk to them directly as you prep the meal. Alternatively, you can place it facing the window if you have a beautiful view outside.

- Find the ideal size of the sink
