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.
The current trend is starting to change in the stainless steel undermount sink. In the past most people preferred a double bowl sink, however a single large bowl is being selected much more frequently. It would seem many people are using the dishwasher and they want a larger single sink to wash just the pots and pans. It should be noted that the largest undermount single bowl on the market today is typically 30 inches long (measured horizontally) by 18 inches wide (front to back). This does not seem like big difference from the typical double bowl that measures 33 inches long (measured horizontally) by 22 inches wide (front to back), but the reality is the reduction of the sink size allows for much greater room behind the sink which will now open up your faucet choices and it also allows placement of the sink a little farther back in the countertop which allows the front edge of the counter top more meat which helps significantly in keeping breakage of the countertop to a minimum. This is truly important because most solid surface countertops fail at this critical point not only at installation but a year or two after installation after your fabricator is now no longer responsible.
Summer-time is here and with it great outdoor activities; picnics, pool parties and long afternoons in the beach. But for many homeowners, summer means remodeling time, investing a large portion of their hot and muggy days inside their homes planning and prepping for small projects to make their homes cozier and ready for great summer events.
When selecting a sink you need to first determine the type of countertop you will have, any type of Formica will require a drop in sink. If you are using any type of solid surface you will have many options to choose from. It is important to stay up to date with the current trends especially for resale value, but it is equally important that you get that functionality that you deserve.
Once you’ve nailed down your configuration, next up will be deciding on the material you’d like for your kitchen sink. Stone sinks, especially granite, are extremely popular and the ultimate in long-lasting luxury. Hand carved by a stone artisan from a single block of granite, marble, limestone, travertine or onyx, a stone kitchen sink is a treasure you’ll cherish each time you use it.
