A kitchen sink can be made from many different types of materials. It is very possible to have a custom-made kitchen sink. Some of the more common materials used to make kitchen sinks are:
–Stainless steel. This kind of sink fits into any kitchen design making it a very popular choice. It is extremely durable, isn’t very noisy, and is super easy to clean. This is a good option for most people if they aren’t sure what they want.
–Porcelain. These sinks are beautiful and they have nearly unlimited color choices. They are best fit for traditionally styled kitchens, but with all of the color options you can work them in anywhere easily! However, they can easily chip or scuff so they do need to be well taken care of. Repairing isn’t really an option so you have to keep it in tip top shape.
–Composite. Composite sinks are expensive because they are resistant to chips, scratches and water marks. They are very easy to take care of, you get what you pay for. They may not be the most attractive, but they do the job and will likely last as long as your home!
-Cast iron. These sinks are durable and come in a variety of colors. Furthermore, they are less noisy than other sinks and just plain look cool! They can act as a centerpiece for your entire kitchen.
In the past, two-bowl sinks were the logical choice for a sink, one for washing and another for rinsing. However, today most homes come with dish washers so a two-bowl sink is unnecessary. This means you have more space and options to do what you really want to with your sink.
–A single kitchen sink basin gives a streamlined look in your kitchen. It is attractive and versatile for your everyday kitchen needs. It keeps things nice and simple.
–Two-basin kitchen sinks are still very much an option! They can be of equal or different sizes depending on your preference. Plus washing your own dishes will save you money if you’re into that!
–A Three-basin kitchen sink has the two big sink bowls for dish washing and a smaller bowl in the middle for food preparation. This would be more handy if you’re the type of person that cooks a lot, or hosts a lot of events. People tend to not go for the three basin option unless they NEED it.
