In a kitchen, the sink is one of the most frequently used sections. From washing hands and vegetables to washing up, accessing water and drainage, a sink does it all. The size of your kitchen sink and how many you have can depend on the use and preference. Those with a dishwasher often find it unnecessary to have two sinks, whereas those who hand wash dishes find it convenient to rinse dishes in a second sink. For large kitchens where multiple people assist with food preparation, many families opt for a second double sink on a kitchen island or elongated bench top.
The sink taps and fixtures can also vary depending on the method used to access water. Water coming in from different sources, such as bore or rainwater tanks will need separate taps, whereas water from a single source, such as town water could be encompassed in a single handled tap. Talk to your granny flat builder about suitable options for you and your needs.
Power point placement for kitchen appliances is important for convenience and practicality. Typically a power point should be located behind the fridge, microwave and oven compartments, and at least two double power points in separate locations on walls above bench tops for appliances. For additional power points and power point placements, talk to your granny flat builder about options for you.
Splashbacks not only stop grease, sauce, oil and heat from damaging your walls, they are also a great way to add some interest to your kitchen. With so many styles and materials on offer in an age where the interior design and construction industry is booming with programs such as, “The Block” and, “My House Rules” promoting luxury living, we are spoilt for choice. From hexagon marble tiles to reflective mirrors, sauce on walls is a thing of the past.
