Nobody said it couldn’t be beautiful though.
Even if you’ve done away with an integrated draining board next to your kitchen sink, you’ll still find yourself in need of a drainer from time to time. Gone are the basic models of yesteryear - these gorgeous designs fit the bill, with hidden trays or clever spouts to collect- or direct water run off. Dedicated racks for wine glasses and knife blocks to protect your best blades and, well, a little Marc Newson design goes a long way in the kitchen!
Whisk away when guests arrive, but their sleek lines and all the mod cons make for a good looking washing up station year round.
