Stainless steel sinks are also very popular, particularly with professional cooks, though copper sinks - notably the farmhouse style - are gaining in popularity, at least in part due to the appealing warmth of the natural patina copper develops as it ages. Kitchen sinks made of artisan materials, though not yet as well-known as copper, stainless and stone, are all on the upswing. Examples are fireclay kitchen sinks, which are often made in the farm style, and cast concrete sinks. Cast concrete in particular allows the artisan to create an amazing array of styles: single well, double well, trough, combined sink and draining board units, countertops with integrated sinks and the farm style, along with unusual shapes. This newer material brings one more element into the design mix - the green kitchen sink. By combining recycled materials with the concrete, artisans can lessen both the environmental impact and the weight of the finished sink.
Another way to secure the sink is to use epoxy. A bead of epoxy is placed around the under side of the sink’s lip. You can also place a bead of epoxy around the edge of the sink hole. Drop the sink in the hole and make sure you have a flush seam all the way around. If part of the sink is not flush, use the brackets under the counter to pull it down and secure it. If you do have a flush seam, it means you have a very smooth and level counter surface. If this is the case, you can use just epoxy to mount the sink and may not need any screws and brackets underneath. In either case, be sure to allow the epoxy to dry for the amount of time shown on the packaging. Do not touch the sink at all during this period.
The next vessel sink is recently being incorporated into newer models of houses and to remodeled old homes. These sinks are known as pedestal sinks, which includes a pedestal to support the basin and at the same time, concealing the pipes used for its drainage and water supply. Like the wall-mounted vessel sink, the pedestal sink is practically used to save space. The minimal size of the pedestal sink allows simple installation, and is mostly suitable for installing a sink on wall parts that are near the corners. The pedestal sink is also ideal for small spaces such as powder rooms. These sinks are often made of vitreous china, fire-clay, porcelain or ceramic.
