A Kitchen Sink Guide: How To Choose The Perfect Sink For Your Kitchen

Whether you’re looking to remodel your entire kitchen or may just want to make a simple upgrade that makes a big difference for your space, choosing a new kitchen sink is important. There are so many types of kitchen sinks to choose from. They can range in size, color, material, and price which is a good thing when it comes to options but can be overwhelming when you don’t know where to start. Allow us to help you make your decision. 
Learn all about the many types of kitchen sinks you have to choose from below.

 

Stainless steel

Believe it or not, there are several types of stainless steel sinks that you can choose from. The many types of stainless steel sinks range depending on their sheeting thickness and steel grade. The thinner the stainless steel sink, the more expensive it will be because its life expectancy is longer than say thicker stainless steel. A thinner stainless steel sink also means that it will be more durable.

This is one of the most popular types of kitchen sinks because of their cost and durability. They are very easy to take care of and are heat and stain-resistant.

 

Farmhouse

Farmhouse sinks have gained popularity over the years due to the farmhouse trend in interior design. They’re an incredibly durable option because of their non-porous material and are great for big families as they come in large sizes. You can choose from cast iron or fireclay and whether you want a single or double bowl. While they can be harder to install as part of the countertop must be removed, they add wonderful detail to your kitchen that simultaneously includes practical qualities.

Undermount

Undermount sinks work in most kitchen layouts and have a sleek design since they fit under your countertop. They make cleaning up your countertop easy as you can slide your sponge right along its edge to push anything you pick up right into the sink. Lighter sinks work better if you’re going to choose this option because of their weight and the fact that they are usually glued in under the countertop.

 

Corner

Coner sinks are perfect for kitchens that have curvature on the countertop and require the sink to sit within a corner. They have 2 basins (one on each side of the corner) and often are more costly due to the intricate work that must go into installing this type of sink. We would recommend this type of sink only in kitchens that are smaller and the homeowner is looking for a way to maximize efficiency in the space.

This engineered stone is a wonderful newer option when it comes to sinks. Coming in 9 colors and over 300 designs, silgranit is a non-porous material that will stand the test of time. These sinks are incredibly durable.  Heat and sharp objects will not damage them and they are easy to clean!
