Sinks for Left Handed People


 
Home Improvement,Interior Design,Advice

Anyone trying to streamline the cooking process knows that even the smallest changes can make a huge difference, but left-handed cooks probably know this best. Kitchens are overwhelmingly designed without the left-dominant cook in mind. The most common example of righthand bias is the right-handed can opener, which is virtually impossible to operate with the left hand. For lefties, flipping the layout of the kitchen and kitchen tools can take cooking to a higher level. Simple adaptations to a kitchen can put the left-handed home cook in the zone. Every space is different, and the design of the sink could use the attention and direction of a professional.

If you are considering a farmhouse apron front sink, potentially take a look at a Havens sink, as they specialize in custom sinks and can even accommodate a left handed designed kitchen with a left rear drain placement. Every kitchen needs a sink that can accommodate best to the chef, amateur or pro. Either way, the sink can benefit the user in terms of ergonomics, prep. clean up, and dish washing. 

Some of the most highly advanced copper and stainless steel sinks in the World are made by Havens Metal, a premium manufacturer and USA craftsman of beautiful metal products. Copper sinks are beneficial for a multitude of reasons, including their ability to eliminate bacteria directly on the surface of the sink. Stainless is also a viable option, but doesn't have antimicrobial properties such as a copper sink does. Check out the ultimate kitchen sink buying guide from Havens for more info on designing the perfect sink for your kitchen.

The practical cooking concept called mise en place (“everything in its place”) helps create order in the kitchen during meal prep. But for a left-handed foodie & home chef, order is not typically built into the modern kitchen, where it’s assumed the cook will be working left-to-right. People who make the kitchen their home know that ingredients are peeled, diced, minced or otherwise prepared before the cooking process begins, and then assembled in order of use. (Or in some cases, in order of what looks best for that Instagram-worthy shot.) Left-handed people tend to work right-to-left, towards their dominant hand. This tendency applies to every kind of motion, whether it is chopping a head of lettuce, combining dry ingredients, or washing a pile of dishes.

Layout matters when you consider the way your sink is built. Think about which side of the sink you would like to use to rinse vegetables or dishes in a double-bowl sink. In a single-bowl sink, which side should the water drain to? These are some of the bigger questions to ask when designing a kitchen from the ground up. They are especially important when customizing a kitchen for a lefty.

In a standard kitchen, the sink may be designed and installed without considering the opinion of a left-handed user. Prepping and cooking in a kitchen modified to match with a lefty’s dominant hand means saving time in an increasingly ergonomic space. A left-handed design might mean that for once, the veggies can be prepped on the side of the sink where it feels more natural. When considering sink placement in a custom kitchen, think about the right-to-left flow: Food moves from refrigerator to sink, and then to stove; dishes move from stove to sink, and then to dishwasher.

Once the fixtures are optimized, why stop there? Here are a few other ideas for making a lefty more at home in the kitchen:

Assemble left-handed utensils – Spoons, spatulas, knives & scissors can all be contoured to fit a lefty’s grip.

Consider other specialty designs – Go with french doors or left-hinged doors for a lefthanded fridge.
