Tansel Stainless Steel Pull Out Storage

A number of our clients have used this slide out stainless steel plate rack above their sink. Some have kept the base open, for drip/dry but concealed behind a cabinet door works great too. Here is a link...

When living in Italy, nobody had a sink with a window. Instead the space was/is always utilised with a very practical dishrack or dishrack cupboard that allows you to handwash your dishes etc and then pop them straight in the rack which then allows the dishes to drain into to sink and airdry. If you are short on space this is a great idea for permanently storing your dishes at the same time - just perfect for a small studio or flat.

Capeanner I just realized that I do have a window over my sink! Looks out across the dining room table to the outdoors. Open floor plan. But I didn't like the idea of having that windowless wall behind the stove. I appreciate your perspective on the framing behind the glass BTW! Sorry I can't find a better shot of the view over the sink.
