If you’re going to redo your kitchen, you almost certainly need to find a new sink. It’s one of the most important elements of any kitchen, yet it’s one that is often overlooked when it comes to renovations.
As with countertops and cabinet doors, kitchen sinks come in a variety of different materials. It’s nice to choose a material that looks great with the rest of your kitchen, but form isn’t as important as function in this case. You need to choose a kitchen sink that will be easy for you to use. Fortunately, you have a few options available to you.
Single Bowl Sinks
As the name implies, a single bowl sink is composed of one large bowl. They’ve become very popular over the last 20 years or so, especially with cooks who like the idea of having a sink large enough to accommodate a large pot or cooking sheet. The only major drawback to a single bowl sink is that you can only perform one task at a time with it. If you’re soaking dirty dishes, you can’t very well use the sink to rinse vegetables for your next meal.
Double Bowl Sinks
Double bowl sinks have two smaller bowls instead of one large bowl, making them a little more versatile. Since you have two bowls, one of them can be used to wash dishes while other can be used to rinse vegetables or do just about anything else. Some double bowl sinks have one large bowl and one smaller bowl, while others have bowls that are roughly the same size. Unfortunately, it is harder to wash larger dishes in a double bowl sink; single bowls are just that much bigger.
These sinks are gaining popularity and unlike a traditional sink, the front part of the sink is exposed after it has been installed. Exposing the front face of the sink has a unique look and most of these sinks are on the larger end. It will give your kitchen a farmhouse look.
When it comes to choosing the right kitchen sink, these are the main options to choose from. Sinks come on many different sizes and materials, but deciding on which of these designs you would prefer is the first and most crucial step in choosing what is best for your kitchen.
