Planning for a kitchen renovation is exciting, but there are many aspects to consider—Especially when deciding on your new kitchen sink! As most of your kitchen activities likely rely on a sink for cooking, prepping, and cleaning, the functionality and installation process must be thoughtfully evaluated when deciding on your upgrade. We’ve compiled a list of tips to consider so you can get the most out of your kitchen renovation.
Size: Assessing your new kitchen’s size will help you determine the best options for your space. Most sink models are currently available 22-30 inches wide and 8-10 inches deep per bowl. Deeper sinks are said to be ideal for taller individuals as they don’t require them to bend over to complete tasks in the sink and large households to hold a larger quantity of dirty dishes.
Number: Traditional kitchen sinks have two bowls, but single and triple bowls are also available! Consider the activities you plan to use your sink for, and how much room you have available. If your space is limited, a single bowl might be best, while a triple bowl sink could be a great choice for an active kitchen with more than one cook.
Materials: While aesthetics are always fun to consider, it’s also necessary to ensure that the materials you choose for your sink are as functional as they are beautiful. Stainless steel is a highly durable material with under-mount capabilities, a wise choice if you are working with a solid surface countertop. Copper is another, more attractive option that holds anti-microbial properties—at a higher cost. An affordable option includes composite sinks made with an acrylic/polyester mixture that comes in many colors. While excellent for interior decor purposes, they are more delicate to wear and tear as traditional metal.
