Hardware such as this makes a strong unfitted, furniture-style statement. It’s ornate and decorative, and often a bit fussy, but it really sets the tone. A kitchen the way jewelry sets the tone of an outfit.
In units such as this one, everything from rinsing to chopping to serving made possible by ice chest and condiment container inserts happens at the sink. This sink can take up a lot of countertop space, although the prep areas it provides may make up for that.
