Just in time for the season of hosting dinner parties, we’re rounding up our favorite sink-side set-ups in the kitchen: well-curated stations with soap dishes, detergent bottles, brushes, sponges, and scrubbers of all kinds. With the right tools (paired, perhaps, with a sink, faucet, and accessories from Hausera), we’re convinced even cleaning up post-party can be enjoyable.

Here are a handful of favorites.
