Wet Sink

Dry sink We recently moved into a newly-constructed building at work. The picture on the left shows one of the bathroom sinks in the new building.
Wet sink After the sink is used a few times, the top of the counter becomes covered with water. (See the arrow.) The problem is that as one adjusts the faucets with wet hands, water drops down onto the counter and accumulates there.

Design Suggestion

A larger sink could be used, designed so that the faucets are a part of the sink instead of a separate installation on the counter. When the faucets are adjusted, a larger sink would allow the water that drops down to drain back into the sink, rather than to run over the top of the counter.

Another solution is to install faucets that automatically adjust the water flow without having to move one's hands away from the sink.
