Sinks. Friday , October 13th , 2017 - 15:05:54 PM
Copper starts out in sheets of various thicknesses or \"gauge\". The thickness of the metal can also be referred to by the weight per square foot. The thicker the gauge copper, the lower the number. Most bath sinks are made from 20 gauge (the thinnest) to 16 gauge (the thickest) and most kitchen sinks range from 18 gauge to 14 gauge. When shopping for copper sinks, always ask about the gauge and be aware that a thicker gauge sink will cost more - and in many cases is worth it! A lightweight gauge metal can result in a \"tinny\" sound when running the faucet.
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.
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.
