The drop in sink is the most versatile because it can be utilized in any countertop surface, whereas the undermount is primarily restricted to solid surface countertops. The hottest sink on the market for style today is without a doubt the stainless steel undermount sink because it gives a very clean line to the countertop and is now the option of choice for most new homes with granite and other types of solid surface.

Stainless steel sinks are also very popular, particularly with professional cooks, though copper sinks - notably the farmhouse style - are gaining in popularity, at least in part due to the appealing warmth of the natural patina copper develops as it ages. Kitchen sinks made of artisan materials, though not yet as well-known as copper, stainless and stone, are all on the upswing. Examples are fireclay kitchen sinks, which are often made in the farm style, and cast concrete sinks. Cast concrete in particular allows the artisan to create an amazing array of styles: single well, double well, trough, combined sink and draining board units, countertops with integrated sinks and the farm style, along with unusual shapes. This newer material brings one more element into the design mix - the green kitchen sink. By combining recycled materials with the concrete, artisans can lessen both the environmental impact and the weight of the finished sink.

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.

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.

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.
