Open shelves, instead of upper cabinets, give a small kitchen in designer Ken Fulk's Napa Valley house an airy feel. The shelves and countertops are made of galvanized metal and the cabinetry is made from old fencing. Vintage truck springs, used as stools, were found at Artefact Design & Salvage. Fulk spotted the vintage industrial pendant lights at the Paris flea market.<br />

Just Around the River Bend

A river sink takes kitchen sinks to a whole new level. One way to make use of a river sink is to fill it with ice to keep drinks and/or food items cold while entertaining. The look will also create a beautiful and impressive presentation. Perhaps a river sink can also be used to wash a lot of produce at once. The river sink design creates a curve that the eye wants to follow along the counter.

How to Choose a Kitchen Sink

Are you planning a kitchen remodel? Don’t forget to choose the right kitchen sink for you. Kitchen sinks are extremely important because they’re used practically every single day. The kitchen sink comes into play when you’re doing dishes, washing produce, prepping food, etc. When it comes to sinks for the kitchen, the possibilities are endless. The following article will help you make sense of kitchen sink materials, bowls, size, shape, mounting and more.

Materials

First, decide which sink material you would like to have in your kitchen. This comes down to personal preference, depending upon which traits are most important to you. For example, which is more important to you: the durability of the material or the color? Read on to learn more about different common materials used in the construction of kitchen sinks.

Stainless Steel – Stainless steel kitchen sinks are very durable and simple to clean. However, they can produce a lot of noise while you’re washing your dishes. Be sure to put pads on the sink that will lessen the noise if you go with a stainless steel sink, or purchase a stainless steel sink that comes with the noise-reducing pads.

Porcelain – Porcelain sinks are available in more colors than some other materials. However, porcelain is also prone to chips and stains. If durability isn’t a major concern for you, then porcelain is a good option. However, if you are hard on your sink, then you may want to consider a more durable option.

Cast Iron – Cast iron sinks come in many colors, and they are easily cleaned. This durable material is covered in a layer of enamel. A cast iron sink in a beautiful color is a good choice for a kitchen design.

Composite Granite – Composite sink materials are made out of a mixture of different materials. Composite granite sinks come in different colors as well. Additionally, composite granite is a durable material. If the composite contains more granite, then it’s even more durable.

Copper – Handmade copper sinks have a beautiful natural color that will create a focal point in your kitchen design. As well as being made out of a durable material, copper sinks do not rust and they are resistant to bacteria.

Solid Surface – Solid surface sinks come in many beautiful colors; however, these sinks are not as durable as other options. Also, note that installation is more complicated and may be more costly. Beware of scratches, chips and damage from hot pots and pans. Some scratches can be buffed out of the surface.

Fireclay – Like some of the sink materials above, fireclay sinks are durable and come in many colors. Note that fireclay sinks are also non-porous, resistant to rusting and resistant to bacteria.

We’ve just touched the surface in this blog. Search around to learn more about other sink materials that are available in the market and choose the best one for you and your kitchen.

Height

The height at which the kitchen sink is installed will depend upon the height of the people using it the most. For example, if the homeowner is very tall, then that person would have to bend over to reach the bottom of the sink. Adjust the sink height accordingly to make using the sink more convenient for those living in the home.

Bowls

The number of bowls in the sink that are needed generally depends on the person’s preference. Multiple bowls are great for homeowners that do a lot of cooking and need more bowls for multi-tasking during cooking prep and while washing pots and pans.

Bowl configurations include:

-Single

-Double

Double Bowl Sink

-Triple

The arrangement of the bowls is also up to the user. However, generally, it is better to place the garbage disposal near the dishwasher. Also, right-handed and left-handed users may also want the bowls on different sides for ease of use.

Size

A good rule of thumb for deciding on the size of the kitchen sink is to compare it to the size of the overall kitchen. It makes more sense to install a large sink in a large kitchen. Otherwise, a large sink in a small kitchen will take up precious counter space. Therefore, consider how much counter space you are willing to live without. Perhaps sacrificing counter space for a larger sink would be perfect for you; others may prefer to reserve counter space for food prep and storage.

In general, kitchen sinks are 36 inches to 42 inches tall and 25.25 inches to 26 inches wide.

Sink size may also be influenced by how much cooking you do throughout the week and the type of food prep you do. Some homeowners will need a bigger sink to accommodate their needs.

Shape

Choose the kitchen sink shape that fits both your stylistic preferences and your user preferences:

-Farmhouse sinks have an apron front that becomes a focal point in the kitchen design.

-A double farmhouse sink is similar to the farmhouse shape but includes two sides.

-A kitchen sink with rounded-sides is easier to clean than one with angles in the corners.

-The bowls in D-bowl sinks are shaped like a “D” with the straight edge closest to the user.

Mounting

Mounting your kitchen sink may be a no-brainer because mounting style is often determined by sink material. Certain sinks are mounted in different ways depending on what materials they are made out of.

Undermount sinks: This mounting style puts the sink under the counter. Undermount sinks are situated 1 to 1.5 inches lower than drop-in sinks. Undermount sinks are easy to clean; this mounting style works well with granite sinks.

Drop-in sinks: You may also hear these sinks referred to as top-mount sinks. With this mounting style, the sink is lowered onto a cutout in the kitchen counter. The sink rests on top of the counter. Drop-in mounting is used while installing stainless steel kitchen sinks.

Number of Sinks

In larger, luxury kitchens, multiple sinks are sometimes installed. You may want a second sink on your kitchen island to allow more food prep and to fill different pots with water at the same time. However, remember that installing the plumbing for a second sink (if it does not already exist) can be costly.

Depth

Kitchen sinks are generally 6 to 12 inches deep. You may want to install a kitchen sink on the deeper side if you wash a lot of large pots after you cook.

Tappings

The tappings are the number of holes in the sink deck. Be sure to check the number of holes in the sink deck before purchasing a faucet for your kitchen sink. You want to be sure that the sink holes match up with the faucet you are installing. If there are too many tappings, you can purchase covers to hide them. You will also need tappings for sink accessories, including soap dispensers, filtered water faucets and spray hoses for washing dishes.

Sink Accessories

While you’re choosing your kitchen sink, you might as well start thinking about whether or not you want to purchase sink accessories. Sink accessories are designed to fit on top of your sink. Examples include cutting boards, food prep bowels and colanders. These accessories allow you to do food prep on top of the sink, which frees up counter space for other tasks and storage.

Use this article as a guide to help you choose and design the kitchen sink that’s right for you. Remember, you can adhere to trends and style in interior design; however, be sure that at the same time, you are picking out a kitchen sink that meets your particular needs and desires. We wish you the best of luck in creating your dream kitchen.
