If you’re redoing your countertops, chances are you’ll have to plan for a sink. Most countertop projects take place in the kitchen or bathroom, after all. So what do you need to know to pick the perfect sink for your space? We’ll start with the basics.
This layout is great for multi-tasking. You can have dishes on one side and wash vegetables on the other. The only downside is if you have large dishes to wash, it can be a pain to fit them between the dividers.
This option gives you the same double basin for multitasking but offers one larger side when you need the extra space. It’s still not as spacious as a single basin sink, but it offers a nice compromise.
The Single Bowl
The single-bowl layout is standard for bathroom designs, but also has its advantages in the kitchen. The large space is great for large dishes, defrosting a turkey on Thanksgiving, and even the occasional bath time for small pets or children!
This is sometimes called a farmhouse sink and is characterized by a large forward-facing side that replaces a section of the counter and cabinetry. You can get these in both single and double basins. Either way, it adds charm to any design.
The stainless steel sink is a staple in kitchen design. Not only does it go with any color or style, but it’s also easy to clean and durable. This is the most affordable option and it’s environmentally friendly as well.
The porcelain sink is most often seen in bathrooms and is available in a white or ivory gloss finish. They offer a timeless feel and are very easy to clean. Their so low maintenance that they can last the entire lifetime of the home.
Are you worried about breaking up that beautiful stone slab you just picked out with a cutout? Make the sink out of the same material! Depending on which kind of stone you’re using we can carve it out of stone or construct it from slabs to suit your needs.
These non-porous, heat-resistant sinks offer a unique matte finish. They’re less expensive than natural granite and are very environmentally friendly.
