Won't Miss #86 - too low sink and counters

Japanese sinks, counters, and the gas tables which sit on them seem to be designed with much shorter people in mind. My husband is of the opinion that they are designed only with the height of Japanese women in mind rather than the average height of both men and women. I'm not a particularly tall woman, but the sink is easily 6 inches too low for comfortably washing dishes without lower back strain from slouching.

I won't miss having to sit on a stool in front of the sink to wash dishes because the space has been designed for someone much shorter than I.
