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.
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.
Kohler: Since 1873 Kohler has produced some of the most beautiful stainless steel kitchen sinks available in the market. Many critics even say that Kohler sinks are made with the consumer in mind first, since they offer the most functional sinks for any type of household. For example, one model that has earned the praise of many vendors is the Indio single-bowl model K-6410-1, which is an unusual under the counter stainless sink that places the faucet configuration to the far-right of the sink, not at the expected top side of the sink, allowing for more working space and clean lines.
Different materials offer a range of benefits and the most popular kitchen sink options are stainless steel, ceramic, granite, fired clay and composite sinks made from a combination of different things. In a busy household, it is likely that the kitchen sink will have to withstand heavy use, thrown-in dishes and regular scrubbing with cleaning products and a rough cloth - for these kinds of homes, a stainless steel sink is ideal.
