According to ADA accessibility guidelines, ADA-compliant kitchen sinks must sit no higher than 34 inches above the floor and have shallow bowls between 5 and 6-1/2 inches deep. Sink drains are located at the rear instead of the middle. Knee clearance underneath the sink is a minimum of 27 inches high, 30 inches wide and 19 inches deep, and exposed hot water pipes should be well insulated to prevent burns.
