The Market’s Most Popular Sinks
If you’re renovating your kitchen, then you know how fun it can be to pick out new appliances, tile, cabinetry, hardware, and countertops. In the midst of these decisions, it can be easy to overlook the kitchen sink. However, the style of sink you choose can really impact the look of your new kitchen. Here are some popular sink styles you may want to consider for your kitchen renovation.
- Single or Double Bowl Sinks
The basin of a single bowl sink is larger than the basins in a double bowl. This can be a benefit when you are washing large pots and pans. However, a double bowl sink allows you to soak dishes on one side while using the other for food prep. Single or double? It’s a personal preference. Carefully consider your daily habits when deciding which type of sink you want in your new kitchen.
- Self-Rimming or Drop-In Sinks
A self-rimming, or drop-in sink’s weight is supported by a rim that extends above the countertop surface. This sink is typically available in stainless steel, porcelain, or enameled cast iron finishes. One of the reasons so many people like this popular sink is that it’s easy to install.
- Undermount Sinks
An undermount sink allows for an uninterrupted surface between the countertop and the sink. This seamless design allows for easy cleanup, as there is no edge where crumbs and debris can get caught. This type of sink can only be used with solid-surface countertops, such as composite, granite or marble.
- Integrated Sinks
Some countertop manufacturers integrate a sink with the countertop for a modern look. Integrated sinks and countertops can be made from natural stone, such as granite, or composite materials, such as quartz. An integrated sink can create a sleek and distinctive look in your new kitchen.
- Apron Front Sinks
Depending on what finish you choose, these popular sinks can set the mood for your entire kitchen. Installing a porcelain or copper apron front sink evokes the warmth and charm of a rustic farmhouse. However, if you want a kitchen with a more modern feel, then choose a stainless steel finish for your apron front sink and install stainless steel appliances to match. In addition, apron front sinks are practical as they’re deep enough to hold large pots and platters for easy cleaning.
- Prep Sinks
A prep sink is typically separated from the main sink so that more than one person can be working in the kitchen at the same time. If you like to cook with your spouse or family, then prep sinks can be invaluable. Often, they are installed in a kitchen island for maximum functionality. Prep sinks come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, so you should have no problem choosing a style that works with your kitchen design and fits the space you have available.
These are some of the more popular sinks that are popping up in kitchens everywhere. Of course, there are plenty of other types of sinks out there as well. The important thing is that you don’t underestimate the influence your sink can have on your kitchen décor. Be sure you carefully choose a sink that will enhance your lifestyle as well as the overall design of your new kitchen.
