Common Uses for Bottom Grids
Homeowners with all varieties of kitchen sinks love bottom grids for their versatility. Here are just a few things bottom grids can do:
1. Protect the bottom of the sink from dings, dents, and scratches
2. Provide a place for pots and pans to rest while leaving space for water to drain
3. Stack clean plates vertically, allowing them to dry
Elkay makes a large selection of bottom grids to fit their American made kitchen sinks. Each bottom grid is made to fit a few particular Elkay sinks, however they can be used with other manufacturers sinks (just check the measurements). Below is a guide to which Elkay bottom grid fits which sink. We hope this will help make your buying process as easy as possible. For more information on Elkay sinks, be sure to read our Elkay Kitchen Sink Buyer’s Guide.
Bottom Grids for Single Basin Kitchen Sinks
Bottom Grids for Single Basin Kitchen Sinks cover the entire basin.
Bottom Grids for Double Basin Sinks
Usually, bottom grids for double basin sinks fit into only one of the basins, but you can buy bottom grids for both sides. Some sinks only have a bottom grid available for one of the sink’s basins. In this case, sometimes there is an additional accessory like a colander that is available for the other side.
Bottom Grids for Triple Basin Sinks
Just like double basin sinks, each bottom grid covers one basin of the sink. In some cases only one or two bottom grids are available and an additional accessory will cover the third basin.
Do you have a bottom grid for your sink? Do they make a difference in the maintenance of your sink?
