Sizing your sink: Once you‘ve determined the style, material and mounting method you want for your sink there‘s just one more criteria to think about - sizing. These days, most cooks look for a nice big sink, if they have the space. For those whose kitchens are more modest, medium, small and even petite size kitchen sinks are available. Handy prep sinks are also now fixtures in the market. Great for cleanup areas and islands, prep sinks are highly appreciated by cooks who like to have a helper in the kitchen.
Mounting choices for different kinds of kitchen sinks: Sink makers continue to innovate, devising new ways to install different kinds of kitchen sinks. The basic installation styles are self-rimming, undermount and farmhouse. These days farmhouse and undermount sinks are sharing the limelight as the most popular styles for modern kitchens.
One major reason people choose stainless kitchen sinks is for their durability, low maintenance and low price. And some new styles of stainless steel sinks are designed with technological properties such as an undercoating that muffles sound. If you will be handling many heavy objects such as cast iron pots and pans, make sure that you ask about the strength of the material of your next kitchen sink. As a rule of thumb, a stainless steel kitchen sink made with a lower gauge will be sturdier and quieter.
A stainless steel kitchen sink should be the ultimate accessory of any kitchen. But since all stainless steel sinks come in different sizes and styles, selecting the right one may become a daunting task. Before you window-shop for your next stainless steel sink, make sure that you have the correct dimensions of your counter top. As a rule of thumb, single basin sinks look better in smaller kitchens and for larger kitchens double-bowls or even triple-bowls are ideal.
