Need help finding small sink OR draining boards for small sink

I'm pondering a kitchen layout which will mean there is only room for a 30cm wide sink.

This is one I've found that I like:

www.wickes.co.uk/Astracast-Single-Bowl-Stainless-Steel-Compact-Sink/p/148595

It would be centralish in a 198cm long run of worktop but I'd like a draining board on at least one side.

How or what or where would I go do find that?
Is it possible to match up draining boards and separate sinks?

What could I do to avoid stuff draining on to the worktop?

Perhaps you know of a sink/draining board combo unit that has a sink width of only 30cm?

Is it for a holiday cottage or something?

Sinks tend to be slightly bigger so you can actually get a plate in them. That sink details here the bowl is only 23cm wide (nine inches!). Isn't there some ergonomic thing with getting both hands in to wash up or fitting a washing up bowl in.

Is it because you have a small base unit under? You can often cut a bit out of the unit sides to squeeze in a larger bowl.

Simple human do worktop drainers - this is a good one but takes up quite a bit of space.

Ikea are good for unusual and small sinks - this or this or this any good?

Thank you - it is for a small kitchen I am doing up in a bungalow, also on this thread

Those Ikea sinks are lovely but the bowls are all just too big.

Ideally I would like something like your Ikea examples www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/S09158185/

But with a 30cm bowl - it just seems impossible to find.

All the 30cms bowls have no drainers attached!

It needs to be small because after fitting all the appliances below the worktop, I think there will only be space for a 30cms unit/sink unit.

I like those drainers but I meant integrated sink and draing boards.

Small bowl only seem to come separately - ideally

I assume you intend fitting that sink sideways.

Are you quite sure that a 30cm cabinet would fit all the waste pipes?

After reading your other thread I would put in a proper kitchen sink and try to allocate space for a condenser tumble drier elsewhere in the bungalow.

Honestly I think most people would be put off by such a tiny sink.
