I had my kitchen designed around one requirement: two sinks on an island as far apart as possible. One for prep & one for clean up. There's room for two (or more people to work that way & no one is facing a blank wall. My kitchen is 22 years old & I still love that arrangement.

I have a double bowl with one larger side that is very convenient since my hubby is always beginning to clean up while I'm finishing up cooking, and need sink for draining pasta or the like. One suggestion if you get a 2nd sink; go larger than bar sink size - at least 16x16 or 20x20 to make it really useful.

We are in the middle of a kitchen reno; there were several things we just HAD to change, one of them being a weirdly curved triple-bowl sink. I used that thing for 5 1/2 years, and for the life of me I could never figure out why anyone would want this. The worst part: the garbage disposal was hooked up to the little sink in the middle! You’re cleaning up after a big meal, and now you’re having to scrape food etc into the tiny sink in the middle, then wash dishes or rinse in the larger sink on the left…..so difficult and annoying! My new sink is a 36”, fairly deep double-bowl fireclay sink…this will be much more user-friendly. I ultimately opted against a second sink in the kitchen because A. I didn’t want to give up the space, and B. our laundry room is the next room over, so if someone needs to wash their hands while Daddy is prepping the turkey, they can do it there. (We are empty nesters, so it’s usually just the 2 of us, and I do most of the cooking by myself.)
