Sinks. Thursday , October 19th , 2017 - 09:13:31 AM
Just deciding the design and type of the sink that you need would not do the trick. You need to be aware of the place where you want to place the sink and based on that you will have to select the sink. You can select a self rimming sink or an under-mount sink depending on the location. A self rimming sink is easy to install but cleaning the area under the rim would be tough. Installing an under-mount sink is tougher, but you will not have any cleaning hassles with it.
Copper has natural antibacterial properties. It will prevent the germs from developing in the sink. Some copper sinks have coatings which totally remove the natural antibacterial properties of copper, so it is advisable to go for a non coated copper sink for the sink to be germ free. Moreover the coating or the plating will eventually wear off. Natural colouration of copper is feasible but ageing improves the appearance of copper. Copper apron sinks that are mainly used in farmhouses can be made more feasible if you give a fire and ice finish on the apron.
With a top mount sink, you basically just need a hole in the counter that the sink will drop into. This type of sink has a flange, or lip, that runs all the way around the sink and sits on top of the counter top. Because this flange overhangs the counter, the edge of the hole does not have to be finished. In fact, if the hole is kind of ragged, no one will ever know as long as you use a top mounted sink. The sink is then fastened from below the counter with screws and small plates that hold the sink in place.
