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.

This is the case for kitchen remodeling projects, that though do not require much effort to execute, many homeowners make the mistake by not spending enough time shopping around for one of the most important items; the kitchen sink. And when selecting a stainless steel kitchen sink things get even more complicated. That is why we have compiled this list of stainless sinks brands to watch for this summer season to help you spend less time fixing your kitchen and more time enjoying it.

In the past most people preferred a double bowl sink, however a single large bowl is being selected much more frequently. It would seem many people are using the dishwasher and they want a larger single sink to wash just the pots and pans. It should be noted that the largest undermount single bowl on the market today is typically 30 inches long (measured horizontally) by 18 inches wide (front to back). This does not seem like big difference from the typical double bowl that measures 33 inches long (measured horizontally) by 22 inches wide (front to back), but the reality is the reduction of the sink size allows for much greater room behind the sink which will now open up your faucet choices and it also allows placement of the sink a little farther back in the countertop which allows the front edge of the counter top more meat which helps significantly in keeping breakage of the countertop to a minimum. This is truly important because most solid surface countertops fail at this critical point not only at installation but a year or two after installation after your fabricator is now no longer responsible.

Rebekah Mcclure Sinks, 2017-03-19 11:00:32. Stone sinks add class to any kitchen or bathroom. Stone sinks are porous and will get stains easier than any other sink material. Stone absorb fluids and allows it to remain below its surface. It is necessary to wipe any fluid that remains on the stone sinks as early as possible longer exposure to staining fluids causes deeper penetration of the stain and the staining will become permanent and difficult to remove. Granite and marble are the most commonly used stone sinks. They need different cleaning processes, as the porosity is different.

A console sink is a sink that is mounted on a counter top that is connected to the wall at the back and supported by two legs in the front. There is no cabinet underneath and this open space helps make your bathroom seem bigger. The space under the sink is a good spot to utilize storage baskets. Console sinks have a delicate quality to them so they are better suited to bathrooms that are decorated in light colors and soft tones.

Because they are used with a countertop, these sinks offer a lot of space for toiletries. These sinks are usually made of vitreous china, ceramic, fireclay, or porcelain, but are sometimes available in unique copper, bronze, and glass options.

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.

Most often the vessel is a round bowl shaped vessel but the basin can be any size or shape. Other than bowls, square basins are popular. Vessel sinks can be made out of a variety of materials but the most popular are glass, stone, or metal. The vessel can sit directly on the counter or on a base which builds it up more. If you have this kind of sink you need to think carefully about the faucets that you use. They need to be able to get the water up and over the vessel edge and the controls need to be easily accessible. Vessel sinks are trendy and are most often seen in homes that feature modern design and decorating. You can use a vessel sink in any bathroom that has counter space.
