Kitchen Sink Materials
Stainless steel kitchen sinks are among the most popular types. They are durable, easy to clean and resist corrosion. Stainless steel is a good choice for busy kitchens where there is a lot of activity.
If you are looking for something a little more luxurious, a granite sink might be the right choice. Granite is beautiful and very sturdy, and it comes in a wide range of colors and styles. It is also heat-resistant, so it can handle hot pots and pans without damage.
Another option is a fire clay sink. These sinks are made from natural materials and have a rustic look that many people find appealing. They are also very durable and can withstand heavy use. The downside is that they can be quite expensive.
Finally, copper kitchen sinks are becoming increasingly popular. They are rust-resistant and relatively easy to care for, and their warm coloration adds a touch of elegance to any kitchen. However, they are also the most expensive option on the market.
How to choose the right kitchen sink for your home
Kitchen sinks come in all shapes and sizes, and it can be difficult to choose the right one for your home. There are a few things to consider when making your decision, including the size of your kitchen and the type of sink you need. If you have a small space, you might want to look at a sink with work station shelves, so you can do more in a smaller area. Another factor to consider is whether you need a double sink or a single sink. If you have a large family, a double sink will be more convenient, but if you live alone or with another person, a single sink will be plenty of room. Finally, think about the style and color of your kitchen and choose a sink that will match well. With so many options available, it's easy to find the perfect sink for your home.
Sizes & Dimensions
Kitchen sinks come in many different sizes and configurations. The most common type is the Single Bowl sink, which is large enough to accommodate large baking sheets and Roasting pans. If you prefer more organizational flexibility, a Double Equal sink may be a better choice. This style has two equal-sized bowls, which can be handy for separating dishes and utensils. Another popular option is the one and three quarter sink, which is slightly smaller than the Single Bowl but still offers plenty of space. If you have a limited amount of counter space, a one and a half sink may be the best option for you. It is significantly smaller than the other options but still has enough room to fit most tasks. Whatever size and configuration you choose, make sure to take measurements before you buy to ensure a perfect fit.
Always bring your sink to the stone fabricator. They will need to see the size and shape of the sink to ensure that it can be cut from the slab of stone. The template is good, but having the sink onsite is even better. This will allow the cabinet maker to fabricate the cabinet to fit around the sink. If it is an apron front sink, the cabinet maker will need the sink onsite to fabricate the cabinet.
Care & Cleaning
No matter what material your kitchen sink is made of, it's going to need a little TLC from time to time. Stainless steel sinks are prone to fingerprints and water spots, so Inox stainless steel cleaner & Polish is a great way to keep them looking brand new. Fireclay and copper sinks can start to look dull over time, so gel gloss is a great way to restore their shine. And granite sinks require a bit of special care to prevent staining - a mild dish soap and mineral oil will do the trick. With just a little bit of regular cleaning and maintenance, your kitchen sink will stay looking like new for years to come.
