Double Sink for 30" Cabinet - vs. Single...
Any suggestions as to whether to switch to a single bowl undermount or drop-in/top sink for a 30" cabinet base, for a kitchen we're adding, or suggestions for a good narrow 70/30, 80/20 or the like?
I'm a double sink devotee having had one for 7 years, but ours is 50-50 and 33" wide, and I've long wanted a bigger single bowl and a smaller 2nd sink for prep/breakaway use.
We are really constrained by space in that we probably should really have a single, deep, 26" or 28" wide, as we could use those extra inches of countertop, but I'm worried about not having even a small 2nd prep sink - and I've been looking at Vigo, Kraus, maybe Franke mostly for the squared off look that I love (would do an apron/barn sink but it doesn't work in our particular kitchen).
Any suggestions? I saw posts about fitting a 29" sink in a 30" base when specs call for 31" (which I think the Vigo 29" sink would do, i LOVE that sink), but our contractor doesn't want to do that and I'm ok sticking with specs as a tradeoff. If we go semi-custom cabinets he could do a 31" cabinet base if we want, but we'll have 12" of countertop between sink and fridge assuming a 30" base, then only 24" between sink and stove - this is a SMALL kitchen... We'll have a 6 foot island adjacent to fridge/sink/stove for prep so we'll make do countertop wise, But I'm trying not to lose too much functionality.
