Choosing the Right Kitchen Sink

When it comes to your kitchen sink, you probably don’t give it much thought on a daily basis. But did you know that it’s one of the most used features in your entire home? Whether you’re remodeling your entire kitchen, or just want to upgrade that old basin there’s lots to consider when shopping around.


Need more space for prepping large meals or washing a number of pots and pans at the same time? A large, single sink is probably your best choice (33 to 36 inches wide, 8 to 10 inches deep). But if you’re working with limited kitchen space, you may want to go with a smaller option.


One size does not fit all when it comes to kitchen sinks. There are tons of options on the market to meet your individual needs. Do you prefer a more rectangular shape? A square shape? A sink with rounded edges? Take a look at the variety of options available before you make a final decision.


From farmhouse to double farmhouse and a wide range of basin options there’s a style to meet everyone’s taste. You’ll likely be able to see a nice variety on display at most local kitchen and home improvement stores.


Like a more modern look? A stainless steel sink might be your best choice. But if you’re going for a more traditional feel, try porcelain, granite composite, or natural stone. Each option comes with pros and cons so be sure to ask a professional to explain them to you.
