We are thinking of a kitchen remodel and are wondering whether we can
make better use of the under-sink space than exists now.
At present each of the two sinks has its own trap in the under-sink
space -- one immediately beneath the sink, the other immediately beneath
the garbage disposer. The trap immediately below the first sink makes it
difficult to anything with the space, such as install a slide-out trash
receptacle. Any reason why the traps can't be in the basement below? And
does each sink need its own trap anyway?
The two basins can share a trap. It's just to keep the sewer stink in
I'd consider saving even more space by having one giant rectangular
basin with one drain into the disposal. The divider in kitchen sinks
just gets in the way.
