Jun 2022

We at Sinkology love a good sink accessory, especially when it helps in more ways than one. That’s why we love kitchen sink bottom grids. What exactly is a kitchen sink bottom grid? As the name might give away, this sink accessory is placed at the base of the bowl to protect It from everyday use. It’s a beautiful addition to sinks in every finish and incredibly protective for even the highest quality sink made with from the strongest materials.

If you’ve never tried this sink saver, keep reading. You might find that this piece is perfect for you. Some may believe that kitchen sink bottom grids are unnecessary. After all, they’re hidden away at the bottom of the basin, out of sight. But we’re certain the following three types of people can’t live without them:


Parents, especially moms and dads of little ones who have irregular sleep schedules, love how this accessory buffers the sound of dishes clanking in the sink. Even disruptive noises that come with washing the biggest pots and pans are muffled by a kitchen sink bottom grid, helping everyone enjoy more restful days and nights. Really, anyone living with a light sleeper or someone working the night shift will benefit because it keeps the high-traffic kitchen open any time of day and the home (relatively) disturbance-free.

Perfectionists appreciate how a kitchen sink bottom grid prevents pots and pans from scratching their beloved sink basin. This removable piece creates a barrier between the sink and piles of dishes, even the thickest, heaviest cast iron skillets won’t scratch the surface. Not only do these grids protect the kitchen sink finish so it can stay looking its best for years to come, but they also make a perfectly beautiful addition, too. We love the look of the grid’s clean lines that show off the sink’s silhouette.
