Tips on How to Choose a Quality Kitchen Sink

There are many decisions that go into consideration before choosing kitchen sinks. Think about how you use the sink, e.g. quick rinse and throw in the dishwasher, cook a lot with pots and pans, how many are in the house, etc.

Consider the Sink shape, size, Materials, Installation type, Configuration, Depth and number of bowls are important. You must make sure that they are practical for your needs. Talk with your cabinet maker about what size cabinets you are getting.

Most popular configurations include 1 1/2 or 1 3/4 bowls with a single drain tray. There is a huge trend to having kitchen sinks with no drain trays either as a top mount or under mount. Topmount or drop-in sinks drop into a hole cut into the benchtop, while under-mount or under-counter sinks are fixed directly under the benchtop.

Deeper bowls can be more useful when soaking and rinsing large pots and pans. A large flat sink bottom increases usable bowl space allowing dishes etc., to be safely stacked.

Offset or rear drains help create more usable space under the sink.

Some kitchens also have a separate sink to be used as a prep sink or bar sink.

Once you choose the size and shape, next, you choose what material the sink is made from.

Popular choices are:

  • Stainless Steel

Low cost, lightweight and almost unbreakable. Look for 304 grade or surgical steel quality with a chrome-nickel rating of 18/10. Stainless steel will scratch but is generally resistant to stains and rust.

  • Granite

Usually a mix of 80% granite crystals, they use coloured grains, so the colour goes all the way through. They are the most scratch-resistant sinks on the market.

  • Butler or Belfast Fireclay

Sometimes called ceramic sinks or farmers sinks. Are usually handmade and can have plain or sculptured front aprons. Fireclay sinks are increasingly popular as many of our older houses are renovated, and homeowners are looking for that colonial or Victorian look in their kitchen.

If it all seems too much, just give us a call, and we can help you with your selections.
