Best Answer

Sinks come in all sizes and shapes, and the best ones have an overflow hole to prevent flooding the kitchen or bathroom should someone leave the room and forget to turn the taps off. When you buy a sink, it is usually stated that the capacity is in litres! But it is more usual to go by the size of the space the sink is expected to fill, the placement of the taps and the waste drain position. Then, of course, is it a single or double draining board, and is it stainless steel? After working out all that, the capacity takes second place, especially as I use a plastic washing up bowl that sits inside my stainless steel kitchen sink.
