Is 17x21 a good size for a prep sink? it would be 8" deep.

Kristen HallockJune 3, 2013

My mistake the sink I am thinking of is 14 3/16 x 18.5" that is the interior space.

My main sink is a Blanco Wave 1.5 bowl 10" deep.

I have a 24" sink base allotted on the island for a prep sink. Its on a corner. The 14x18.5" sink requires a 21" cabinet. My husband doesnt want a huge sink as a prep sink. So I thought the 14x18.5 would be big enough to be useful but not seem huge. WDYT?

The blanco super supreme has an interior dimension of 18.5 x 18.5 and required a 24" cabinet. So I could fit that one too, but DH will probably b!tch about the size.

Here is the layout and the sink is at the corner of the island between the fridge and range.

My second sink is 12x17x8, interior, in a 22" deep counter. (We built the cabinet a few inches shallower than normal to match another feature in the room.) I think 14x18.5 will be fine.
