Now and then we find a product that is simply outstanding. Hats off to Kohler’s “Stages” kitchen sink. It is installed in the kitchen at the LIFEhouse, a concept house featuring universal design which will be opening soon at our Newport Cove waterfront community near Antioch, IL.

The house is a collaboration between builder New American Homes Inc. and the Center for Inclusive Design and Environmental Access (IDEA) at the University of Buffalo – State University of New York.

This sink comes with a host of accessories: a utensil tray, “flip” tray and wooden cutting board (all fit into the sink’s contour and slide across it), plus six prep dishes that nest into the trays. The sink itself is extra deep; adjacent is a wet work surface perfect for draining and drying. The whole setup is a cook’s dream.

At Newport Cove we team up the 33-inch “Stages” sink with Kohler’s Hi-Rise stainless deck-mount bridge faucet.

This sink allows chopping, rinsing, holding and cleanup all within a single space. With a “Stages” in your kitchen, who needs a sous chef?
