We tend to think of sinks –– especially our kitchen sinks –– as sturdy fixtures that are invincible. The truth is, however, that our sinks are also prone to the same wear and tear that makes them need repairs and replacements. Whether you’re looking to take better care of your sink or are moving into a new place and need help shopping for some new equipment, this blog post will teach you everything you need to know.
You can’t have a kitchen without a sink or faucet. How are you going to wash dishes and prepare meals? But not just any sink will do –– you need something that will fit in your space and make the best use of your resources.
One thing to consider when selecting a sink is how you intend to use it. Families who tend to be hard on sinks –– if you use heavy cooking equipment, for example –– should strongly consider a sink made out of stainless steel as it is a very durable, solid choice.
If what you want is something that is easy to clean, then definitely go with a solid surface sink –– that will save you plenty of cleaning time and effort. But if what you want is something that will look pretty and highlight your kitchen, then consider enamel-coated cast iron.
It’s not enough to just decide what type of sink you want in your kitchen but also how many sinks you want. Traditionally, many households feature two sinks, which can help a ton when it comes to washing dishes. But if you mostly stick to your dishwasher, just one might be enough.
A combination of one large sink, and one smaller, adjacent sink might also be a great solution for households with enough space. Regardless of how many sinks you want or need, we recommend getting a sink that is deep enough so as to accommodate multiple purposes.
