How big is too big for a sink?

2 months ago

I am planning on sticking a one basin 36" stainless steel sink in my kitchen island. I just installed a 33" one basin sink in another room. The 33" one (9" deep) looks really big to me and kind of ugly, even though it replaced a 33" two basin (7" deep) sink. (It replaced one of the same length and width, but new one is deeper and only 1 basin.)

Is there a size that you feel is really just too big? Have you regretted installing a big sink in your kitchen? Are there any other pitfalls that I need to watch for in picking out my sink. I have a giant utility sink in my basement that I love, so I already have a big sink for large weird items.
