Console lavatory sinks require more space than pedestal sinks, but give a wonderful vintage look to your bathroom. Console sinks are mounted on two or more legs that offer both style and support to the top basin. The water supplies are exposed with this type of sink.
Information about stainless kitchen sinks is not hard to find, but sometimes it is hard to understand with numbers, alloys and percentages floating around in the product descriptions. It may look complicated but in reality, almost all stainless steel sinks are fabricated from Type 304 stainless steel. This is the basic form of stainless steel and what this number signifies is that this steel contains a minimum of 18% chromium, 8% nickel and a maximum of.08% carbon. This is why you will also see the number 18-8 steel listed in the specifications sometimes, they are simply referring to the percentages of chromium and nickel blended with the steel to make it stronger. As you probably know, steel is susceptible to rust, but by blending in these other elements it makes the steel corrosion resistant as well as sturdier. A higher percentage of chromium and nickel in the steel indicates a higher grade of stainless steel so look for the 18-8 or even 20-10 numbers somewhere in the information so you can rest easy knowing your stainless sink is high quality. While stainless steel sinks are not very susceptible to rust, they can be stained by rust, so be careful of leaving a cast iron pan sitting in a sink too long.
