Granite is less porous than marble and do not absorb liquids so easily. Scrubbing the granite sink with a soft brush using soap solution is more than enough for regular cleaning. For persistent stains in granite sinks using dish washer liquid or diluted bleach solution is recommended. Strong alkalis such as ammonia should not be used to clear the blocks in granite sinks. Rust stains caused by iron particles can be successfully removed using a cleaner which contain mild acid like oxalic acid.
Another widely used sink is the traditional vessel sink. These vessel sinks have been used for designing bathroom sinks for many homes and businesses. This bowl-shaped sink appears to be submerged on a top of a counter. Tall filler faucets and sometimes wall faucets are installed above these vessel sinks. Traditional vessel sinks come in different types of materials such as china, ceramic, bronze, glass, and clay.

If you don’t mind the extra work, you can increase (or decrease) the size of the sink in your kitchen. If you have a small kitchen and feel like you need to downsize your large sink, you’ll need to replace some or all of your countertop. On the other hand, if you have a large kitchen, large family, or simply love to cook, your small sink may not be sufficient and an upsize is in order, in which case you’ll need to cut the sink hole larger (which may require special tools).
