Choosing Your Kitchen Sink
We use the kitchen sink all the time without giving it a second thought. So what happens when you have to not only give it some thought, you have to concentrate in order to make an important choice about your sink.
One of the things you have to pick during your kitchen remodeling project is the perfect sink. So before your kitchen renovation project is underway, make sure you've given plenty of thought to the options you have so make the choice that will work best for you.
Everything And the Kitchen Sink
The thing with making choices is that you should end up with something you like but that usually means you don't notice. That may sound strange but let's face the fact that it's usually the features of our home that we don't like that we notice and think about, not the ones that just seamlessly do their job.
In other words, pick the wrong sink and you're likely to complain about it - daily. Get the right sink and you'll probably just enjoy it so much you'll take it for granted.
So, what are some of those decision making features you'll contemplate before you chose your kitchen sink?
- The type of material you select is a big deal and it's not just about looks, although that matters too! Find out more about the care requirements and only select something that's realistic for your lifestyle. Some materials, such as granite, require regular cleaning and even sealing. On the other hand, stainless steel is durable while being lower maintenance and lower cost.
- Do you want a divided sink? While many people prefer the look and spaciousness of an undivided sink, others prefer a divider. This helps with washing and rinsing or having a place to use a drop-in colander while still being able to use the sink. Know the pros and cons of each style before making your selection.
- Find out more about details that are not standard. For instance, many homeowners swear by their off-set drain. It gives more flat and useable space and makes it easier to drain the sink even if a large pot is soaking in the sink.
- Let's not forget the faucet. Although considered hardware and another decision completely, you want a sink and faucet that work together cohesively so make both choices with that in mind.
