HomeBlogKitchen Sinks That Make Life Easier

The sink is arguably the most functional piece in a kitchen. You likely use your kitchen sink to prepare every meal, thanks to the essential water it controls and dispenses for rinsing, washing, measuring, preparing, and, of course, drinking. Thankfully, kitchen sinks come in numerous designs, materials, shapes, and sizes to meet virtually any requirement. To get the most out of the sink in your remodeled kitchen, consider how you will use it and how you want it to blend in with the room.

Kitchen Sinks That Make Life Easier

• What type of mount do you want? Kitchen sinks are installed in three main ways, based on how they are inserted in the surrounding countertop. Apron sinks, also known as farmhouse sinks, are deep and wide, with a large front that intercepts the front of the counter. Their substantial size makes cleaning and handling large items easier. Drop-in sinks, alternatively called top-mount sinks, are inserted into a pre-cut section in the countertop, most often resulting in a visible raised edge, or rim, that holds the sink in place on top of the counter. Their typically low cost and easy installation makes them budget friendly. Undermount sinks are installed and attached beneath the counter. Their lack of a rim makes countertop cleaning easier.

• Which style sways you? The options can seem endless. Do you want a double basin for multitasking, a single basin for an all-in-one approach, or a triple basin for extra prep? Choose the number of basins required to simplify your cooking routine. You can opt for antimicrobial copper, clean and classic stainless steel, heat- and stain-resistant granite/quartz, or nearly indestructible cast iron. Selecting the proper material will not only reduce the amount of time you spend cleaning, but also enhance the visual appeal of your kitchen.

• Don’t forget to make a splash. The final touch for kitchen sinks is the backsplash, which can do more than just protect the nearby wall from dirt and moisture. Consider the color for optimal aesthetics, as well as the material for maximal functionality.
