When people think about their kitchen renovation project, they probably think about “everything but the kitchen sink”. That’s probably because it’s not the place in a kitchen that anyone perhaps wants to be. When you’re at the kitchen sink you are usually washing dishes, or completing the boring task of preparing some type of food.
However, choosing the wrong sink can really diminish your kitchen renovation design. Whether you like it or not, people will notice your kitchen sink and if you make the wrong choice you could end up forever regretting your decision.
Kitchen sinks come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. Your choice will be influenced by what you want your sink to do, and how it should fit in with the rest of your kitchen.
Making the Wrong Kitchen Sink Choice Can Ruin Your Whole Design Project
Metal kitchen sinks are still hugely popular. Stainless steel sinks are much better these days in terms of durability and attractiveness than in previous years. Not only are they affordable, they are easy to maintain and clean. The downside is they don’t look particularly nice, are noisy and can scratch. If you want a practical sink that’s going to be a little out of the way and not the centerpiece of your kitchen, then stainless steel could be the solution for you.
Stone sinks are a little better looking than metal and are sturdier. The problem is, they are more expensive, especially quartz or granite sinks. Porcelain is another decent option, but phina can become chipped. If you don’t want to spend too much on your sink yet you still want it to look good, then a solid surface sink made from a polyester or acrylic base is possibly the way to go.
How and Where You Mount Your Sink is an Important Consideration too
Under-mounting your sink is one of the best ways to deal with kitchen debris. With no rim, you can wipe up around your sink and transfer what you have amassed directly into the bowl. Drop-in sinks tend to collect grime above the counter seal.
Make sure you make considerations towards your faucets as well. It’s no good spending money on an expensive, good-looking sink if your faucets look cheap and unsightly. It’s always best if you consider the sink renovation aspect of your kitchen design as a whole unit.
