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.
The very first step you need to take is to turn off the water for your kitchen. Once you’re sure you won’t unleash a flood, you’ll need to disconnect the old sink from the kitchen plumbing. Get under your sink and familiarize yourself with which pipes go where. You may want to draw a simple outline for reference. Then you will simply need to methodically unhook the waste lines and feed lines from the existing sink. Have a bucket and some towels handy; there will be some drainage.
Since 1873 Kohler has produced some of the most beautiful stainless steel kitchen sinks available in the market. Many critics even say that Kohler sinks are made with the consumer in mind first, since they offer the most functional sinks for any type of household. For example, one model that has earned the praise of many vendors is the Indio single-bowl model K-6410-1, which is an unusual under the counter stainless sink that places the faucet configuration to the far-right of the sink, not at the expected top side of the sink, allowing for more working space and clean lines.
Copper sinks are much easy to clean. Regular cleaning with mild soap and rinsing with water is all you have to do to keep your copper sink clean. The copper sinks are maintenance free. Copper cleaners can be used on copper sinks if you want to always have the shiny appearance. Copper will gain patina as it ages. If you prefer to slow down the ageing process you have to apply layer of wax on copper sinks at particular intervals. This will cause easy run off for water and prevent any harm effect of hard water on copper. Always keep your copper sink and drain dry by wiping with a cloth to prevent spotting of the sink. Stainless steel sinks requires least effort to clean. Rinsing it with soap solution and drying it with soft cloth will keep the stain less sinks clean. Glass sinks are very sturdy and are simple to clean. When cleaned properly glass sinks will remain as new for years. No special cleaning is required for them. Vinegar and water solution can be used to remove any water spots on the glass sinks, but are not to be used on every sink cleaning task.
Vessel sinks, commonly known as basin sinks are becoming the popular trend in the luxury kitchen. Vessel sinks sit atop instead of being below the countertop unlike the traditional sink basins. So they are more visible and make a major design statement. They are now produced in a variety of unique and kitchen friendly materials including stones, glass and wood.
