The number and size of the basins in your sink are probably the first consideration you’ll have. Dual-basin sinks are the most common, featuring two sides with the faucet in between. Farmhouse sinks, with one large basin, are also a popular choice, especially for country-style homes. Models are also available with basins of different sizes, such as a small one for washing vegetables.
Sinks are really becoming the focal point in the kitchen. With increasing emphasis on the kitchen sinks, new varieties with shading, carving and other artistic designs are emerging fast. Hand hammered copper kitchen sinks are the most sought after variety among the kitchen sinks. The cost of a kitchen sink depends mostly on the type of material and the technology that is involved in making the sink. Whether the sinks are made by artisans or by bulk factory production, is also a factor deciding the cost of the copper kitchen sink. There is bewildering range of copper kitchen sinks now flooded in the market. All you have to do is to buy the copper kitchen sink of your need from a reputed company.
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.
Before you begin removing the old sink you should ensure that you have the correct measurements for the new sink. Keep in mind that not all sinks have the same measurements. Attaining the correct assessments will assist in finding a sink that will match the shape and size of the one that was removed. If you choose a sink that is bigger or smaller than your original one, you may need to replace the counter-top as well. A larger sink is better as it will require you to create additional space for the sink instead of replacing the entire counter-top.
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.
