Pedestal sinks are often made of porcelain or marble and are all one piece rather than a sink that sits on top of a table or stand. Pedestal sinks do not leave much room for storage under the sink or even a space for a basket because often times the pedestal flares towards the floor. This type of sink is best suited for a powder room in a foyer or somewhere that no storage of bathroom grooming items is necessary.

One of the first things you will see, besides size of course, is Gauge. The Gauge of stainless steel measures the thickness of the steel itself that was used to create the sink. Usually you will see a number between 16 and 23. In most circumstances a higher number indicates a higher quality or larger measurement, but Gauge is like Golf, the lower the number the better. I personally recommend a 16 or 18 gauge sink, especially if you are doing an apron front sink or a zero radius stainless steel sink. Anything higher than that, while it may be cheaper, is much more likely to dent or crease, especially when your belt buckle hits the front of a stainless farm sink while you are doing dishes. 18 gauge stainless steel is 0.0500 inches thick and weighs 2.016 pounds per square foot, and 16 gauge stainless steel is 0.0625 inches thick and weighs 2.52 pounds per square foot. While that may not seem like much, that is actually a 25% increase in both thickness and weight, making 16 gauge a considerably more durable and sturdier sink.

If you made a big change in the layout of your sink, you will need to install some new pipes and connectors (and may want a plumber to help with that), but otherwise it should be the reverse process from when you disconnected them earlier. You will want to use PVC cement to seal the joints of the pipes, to prevent leaks.

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.

Copper sinks often come in various finishes from a bright copper finish (like a new penny) to a dark patina (we call ours \"Dark Smoke\") and everything in between. The copper finish you choose is a matter of personal taste, but oftentimes our clients prefer the more \"weathered\" patinas to avoid the upkeep or uncertainty associated with shiny copper. If you want to slow down the patina process, try applying a wax like \"Renaissance Wax\". Applied every few months, the wax will provide a barrier between the copper and the environment.

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.
