While some prefer a large single basin kitchen sink, Houzz points out that it can be difficult to manage multiple tasks, such as soaking one dish and rinsing another. A sink with multiple basins make it easier to split such tasks up into separate parts of the sink. One task made easier by multiple basins is doing dishes because you can more easily wash items that you aren't putting in the dishwasher and can have soap in one of the basins and rinsing water in the other.

Houzz recommends the good sink be made of sturdy material, and recommends using stainless steel, porcelain, granite composite or natural stone. Consumers usually decide on the best material by determining what will look best in their kitchen and how much the material actually costs.

Depending on your needs, a good kitchen sink will have multiple accessories. These include prep bowls, cutting boards, colanders, knife blocks and racks. For the sink area to look clean and organized, you will need to have sufficient space to store accessories when not in use.
