Four Over-the-Sink Accessories: Maximize your Space!

Four Over-the-Sink Accessories: Maximize your Space!

We love long-lasting products that maximize, organize and beautify space. The areas above your kitchen and bathroom sinks are treasure troves of often forgotten space. With the four products featured above, you can chop, dry dishes, grow herbs and slide your way into tidy living. Check out these well-designed cutting boards, drying rack and multi-purpose shelf. Read more for details.

All of the featured products are made of eco-friendly materials like bamboo and steel. Bamboo is a renewable resource, extremely durable (harder than maple), and naturally microbial and beautiful. What's more, its mid-tone color is not produced from stain or resin. Steel is multifunctional across many industries, durable and repeatedly recyclable.

Products #3 and #4 are particular favorites of mine. Product #3 is a slatted shelf that is elevated. The slatted design increases its function because the slats enable it to work as a drying rack for cups, in addition to extra counter space. It has endless possibilities in both the kitchen and bathroom. In the kitchen, it's good for growing herbs and keeping dishwashing tools handy. In the bathroom, it creates an attractive area for cotton swab containers and other grooming supplies.

Product #4 is a cutting board with legs. The legs boost its functionality: it can be used over the sink or the stove. Place a plate underneath it and slide your ingredients right onto it to transfer ingredients mess-free. This not only provides a tidy way of transporting your ingredients into your pot or pan, it also quickly frees up space on your cutting board for the next items that need chopping!
