Stainless steel sinks are also very popular, particularly with professional cooks, though copper sinks - notably the farmhouse style - are gaining in popularity, at least in part due to the appealing warmth of the natural patina copper develops as it ages. Kitchen sinks made of artisan materials, though not yet as well-known as copper, stainless and stone, are all on the upswing. Examples are fireclay kitchen sinks, which are often made in the farm style, and cast concrete sinks. Cast concrete in particular allows the artisan to create an amazing array of styles: single well, double well, trough, combined sink and draining board units, countertops with integrated sinks and the farm style, along with unusual shapes. This newer material brings one more element into the design mix - the green kitchen sink. By combining recycled materials with the concrete, artisans can lessen both the environmental impact and the weight of the finished sink.
Wholesale and discounted kitchen sinks are available online and in kitchen stores. With the number of stores and sites that offer kitchen sinks out there, it is best if you research, compare and contrast first before committing to one. Once purchased, the next thing to do with the kitchen sink is to install it. Among the available types of kitchen sink installations, undermount kitchen sinks are the most common, yet most difficult, to complete because they eliminate the upper ring of the sink. This is done so that food and kitchen dirt can easily be wiped into the sink.
Another common material for undermount sinks in ceramic, which typically comes in white finish. This is great no matter the color of your kitchen countertop. As a matter of fact, you can opt for a customized ceramic undermount sink that goes well with the design of your entire kitchen. This type of sink design is available in a butler-sink style, which is perfect for Victorian-style interiors. On the other hand, you can find rectangular and solid ceramic undermount sinks that combines greatly with country-style interior designs in kitchens.
What materials suits your style? Once you‘ve nailed down your configuration, next up will be deciding on the material you‘d like for your kitchen sink. Stone sinks, especially granite, are extremely popular and the ultimate in long-lasting luxury. Hand carved by a stone artisan from a single block of granite, marble, limestone, travertine or onyx, a stone kitchen sink is a treasure you‘ll cherish each time you use it.
