So you’re knee deep in kitchen design and it comes down to the sink. It’s often not what homeowners go into custom construction or their remodel dreaming of, but it’s an important feature. All sinks are certainly not the same. How do you choose the best kitchen sink to go with your countertops, color palate and lifestyle?
Shapes and Sizes
You spend more time at your kitchen sink than you probably realize, so it’s important that this aspect of your kitchen design is not a last minute after thought. Think about how you would like to use your sink. Will you wash food? Do you use the disposal? Do you need or want separate basins? Do you have large pans or platters than need to fit into the basin? Should the basins be more square, or more rounded? While these may not seem like essential questions, the kitchen sink will directly impact how easy and fun it is to use your new kitchen.
Porcelain or Stainless Steel
This is question we get a lot and it really comes down to personal preference and use. Usually, stainless steel sinks are more flexible in different design styles and more durable, but both products can last up to 30 years. 30 years is durable by any standard, so it may be best to think about the aesthetic in the kitchen and which material will fit in best.
