Q: Dear Ed: I own a small condo and plan to remodel the kitchen. The kitchen area is very small and I’ll need a smaller-than-average sink. I want this remodel to be high end. Do they make small professional-style kitchen sinks?

A: Workstation kitchen sinks do come in a variety of sizes. For small kitchen sinks you will most likely be looking at the single-bowl category. But just because it’s a single bowl sink doesn’t mean you’ll be giving up multiple features that can help you in the kitchen.
I’ll get into some accessories in a second, but first let’s talk sink construction.
If you want a high-end look for a smaller kitchen sink, I recommend an under-mount style with a deep bowl. For material, a heavy gauge stainless steel sink with a cone-style drain can also add a professional look. For extras, some smaller workstation sinks can include accessories.
Custom features like a colander, cutting board and even drain racks can help you live large in your small kitchen.
