A Guide to Help You Pick a New Kitchen Sink
When planning a remodel to update your kitchen, whether to create a more convenient place to cook and entertain, make the room more stylish and modern, or a combination of both, a new sink installation should be part of the remodeling scheme. The sink of a kitchen receives an immense amount of use, and it is also one of the visual centerpieces of the room, so making a wise choice for a new sink installation is important for the overall success of any kitchen remodeling project.
When you contract Striking Kitchen and Bath by Bell for your remodeling in Denver, CO or the surrounding areas, our experienced designers will help you select the ideal new sink.
Some things to consider with your new kitchen sink
With so many different types of sinks from which to choose, where should you start?
One place is the number of bowls the sink has. If you used a single bowl sink previously, you should consider the numerous advantages of the multiple bowl models, which allow for easier food preparation and clean-up. There are double bowl and triple bowl models in different configurations, and your remodeling specialists will assist you with finding that multi-bowl sink that will fit your needs, the available space, and your budget plans.
The material of the sink is another key factor to consider. Stainless steel is the most popular choice: it?s attractive, cleans easy, and is budget-friendly. Also popular is the cast iron sink with a porcelain cover. This type of material gives you more color options, and they resist heat and damage. There are a number of less common material choices, such as copper and soapstone; ask your remodeling expert about the pros and cons of each variety to help you narrow down your options so you end up with the sink that fits your dream kitchen.
How will your sink be mounted? Top-mount and drop-in are the two basic options, but you can also go for the apron front design (the ?farmhouse? look) which can add an unusual and eye-catching appearance to your kitchen. The maintenance needs for the sink will vary depending on how it is mounted.
