If it‘s been a while since you shopped for a kitchen sink, you‘ll find there‘s now a world of different kinds to choose from. There are stainless steel sinks, double well sinks, fireclay sinks, concrete sinks with integrated draining boards and copper farm sinks, just to name a few of the many styles available. One of these will be perfect for your project, but how do you decide between all the options?
The Function of an Undermount Sink: An undermount sink has a function that is different from the traditional designs of kitchen basins. This function is known as flush fitting, wherein the sink is fitted underneath the countertop, providing the kitchen top a thorough and clean finish. You will not see rims and joints, making the top appear flawless and neat. With an undermount sink on your kitchen working countertop, all you have to do is push back the mess to the sink.
Copper has natural antibacterial properties. It will prevent the germs from developing in the sink. Some copper sinks have coatings which totally remove the natural antibacterial properties of copper, so it is advisable to go for a non coated copper sink for the sink to be germ free. Moreover the coating or the plating will eventually wear off. Natural colouration of copper is feasible but ageing improves the appearance of copper. Copper apron sinks that are mainly used in farmhouses can be made more feasible if you give a fire and ice finish on the apron.
Compared to ceramic, stainless steel undermount sinks are more favorable among a lot of homeowners. This is due to the great durability of the material. Plus, steel does not dent, scratch, or stain. While there are several rectangular-shaped steel undermount sinks, you can also choose from other shapes. These include round, elongated, and oval. You can match it with the general shaping design of your kitchen.
