3 Tips to Help You Choose the Best Sink for Your Kitchen

If you have a busy kitchen, then your sink is one of the most important parts of the room. There are very few features in a home that people use as often as the kitchen sink. If you plan on remodeling your kitchen, then you need to carefully think about the kind of sink you will use. You need to consider the number of basins, the shape of the sink, and the sink material.

Choose the Right Sink Configuration

If you want to prepare large quantities of food or if you frequently soak or wash big pans then choose a sink with a single, large, deep basin. To perform separate tasks at the same time, however, choose two basins of different sizes instead. An offset sink can allow you to clean using the large basin and prep using the smaller one. If you like symmetry, you can also choose a design with two basins of equal sizes. Some models come with two large basins and a small one with a garbage disposal.

Consider Your Sink Shape and Design

When choosing your sink, you need to keep the overall kitchen design in mind. If you have a vintage inspired kitchen, consider using a farmhouse sink. This sink design has a distinctive and appealing apron front. Farmhouse sinks come in both single and double basin configurations. Curved sinks have a sleek and minimalist look that are easy to clean. Lastly, sinks with a built-in drainboard are great for draining dishes and hand washing, but note that this is a wide sink design that can take up countertop space.

Think About Your Sink Material

Stainless steel is a popular sink material because it is easy to clean and durable. It also tends to work well with both traditional and contemporary kitchen designs. If you like vintage style, then you could also choose a porcelain sink. This beautiful material comes in a wide range of colors. Granite composite sinks resist scratches and chips and will not show water spots. It’s great if your home has hard water. Finally, natural stone sinks are a great choice if you want to match your countertop material and give your kitchen an authentic period look.

The right kind of sink configuration and material can make your kitchen preparations so much easier. If you need help choosing a sink, give Handyman Connection of Eden Prairie a call.
