Enamel cast iron sinks and ceramic sinks look elegant and tend to be very durable. But they are also expensive when compared to stainless steel sinks. Water drumming is almost absent in them and cleaning them is very easy. Sinks made of copper, brass and also natural stones are available. Copper is easy to maintain and has natural resistance to microorganisms. Brass is tough to maintain but can give out a great rustic look. Sinks made of natural stones are heavy, but easy to maintain and are durable. Composite sinks are made from a mixture of two substances. It is sturdy and durable, but is prone to scratching.
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.
Sinks are the most used item in bathrooms and kitchens. They are not only useful but can enhance the style of the room where they are fixed. While deciding the sinks, the strength and durability comes first, and then comes the color and style. It is also very important to think about the use of the sink in a particular area. More than being a functional necessity they have aesthetic appeal. They come in different designs; have softer lines and a variety of finishes.
Vessel sinks are sinks that sit on top of a counter rather than being lowered into or mounted under it. Most often the vessel is a round bowl shaped vessel but the basin can be any size or shape. Other than bowls, square basins are popular. Vessel sinks can be made out of a variety of materials but the most popular are glass, stone, or metal. The vessel can sit directly on the counter or on a base which builds it up more. If you have this kind of sink you need to think carefully about the faucets that you use. They need to be able to get the water up and over the vessel edge and the controls need to be easily accessible. Vessel sinks are trendy and are most often seen in homes that feature modern design and decorating. You can use a vessel sink in any bathroom that has counter space.
Wall mounted sinks are exactly what they sound like. You will often see wall mounted sinks in public restroom because they do not take up a lot of room and you can fit a large number of sinks into a limited amount of space. Some people do use wall mounted sinks in their homes, but they should not be used if you have small children or people who will need to pull themselves up or rest on the sink with their entire body weight. Wall mounted sinks can be pulled away from the wall and that could cause a large amount of damage both to the wall and water damage.
