If you don’t mind the extra work, you can increase (or decrease) the size of the sink in your kitchen. If you have a small kitchen and feel like you need to downsize your large sink, you’ll need to replace some or all of your countertop. On the other hand, if you have a large kitchen, large family, or simply love to cook, your small sink may not be sufficient and an upsize is in order, in which case you’ll need to cut the sink hole larger (which may require special tools).
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.
Once you’ve nailed down your configuration, next up will be deciding on the material you’d like for your kitchen sink. Stone sinks, especially granite, are extremely popular and the ultimate in long-lasting luxury. Hand carved by a stone artisan from a single block of granite, marble, limestone, travertine or onyx, a stone kitchen sink is a treasure you’ll cherish each time you use it.
There is a general belief that copper sinks are very difficult to maintain. There is some truth to that myth. You cannot expect to keep your copper kitchen sinks looking like a new shiny penny forever. If you allow your copper sink to age naturally to a beautiful variety of darker copper shades, you are going to have a kitchen sink envied by others. Copper sinks are everlasting if you take good care and do proper cleaning regularly to prevent the greening of the copper.
