What Is Something I Can Put Over My Kitchen Sink to Make for Counter Space?

To add additional counter space to a small kitchen or a full work area, you can make use of a currently unused sink with a cutting board that fits over the basin under your faucet.


An over-the-sink cutting board overs up the sink to provide an additional flat surface on your counter. The board can be used to prepare food or to temporarily house ingredients or small appliances.


The cutting board is placed on top of the sink so that each end of the board extends to the right and left sides of the sink. The material of the board, plastic or wood, prevents the board from bowing in the centre while you work.


Over-the-sink cutting boards are available in different styles to match your kitchen. You can opt for a wooden cutting board in different colours or a clear plastic board to camouflage the tool.


Boards may also come equipped with additional attachments such as a strainer on one end to cut vegetables in or removable bowls placed in a gap in the board.
