If you are in the middle of a kitchen renovation, then you might ponder on what type of material will be best for your kitchen sink. There are a number of materials you can use for your sink namely: stainless, ceramic, porcelain, copper, granite and vintage. Among the given choices, ceramic is a favorite pick of most customers. It is widely used because it is cheaper compared to other materials. It also has unique features that customers look for in a sink.
Despite the numerous benefits one could get from using a ceramic sink, it also has a drawback. Ceramic kitchen sinks are more prone to scratching or chipping. One it has been scratched, nothing can be done to revert it back to its original appearance. Hence, if damaged there is a need for immediate replacement which could turn out to be more costly than investing on a more expensive material. Before, most sinks are made out of a ceramic covered cast iron. But now, it uses earthenware as base. It was a great improvement. Since, cast iron is heavier than ceramic, Pure Ceramic Sinks are much easier to install and manage. Ceramic Kitchen Sinks come in different forms. Single bowl sinks are recommended for bigger plates as it is much deeper than the other types. Double bowl sinks, on the other hand are for multiple uses. Having a dishwasher at home may also affect your decision in choosing which type will be best for you.
The other type of sink design is the solid surface plastic one. This style of kitchen sink will enable the sinks to be like the plastic material of the counter top. The advantage of this sink is that it can be easily glued to the counter top‘s underside part. This will make the sink‘s joint to be invisible thus reducing the trap of dirt on the seam as well as the counter top. When the joint is then ground, it will create a finish and invisible look. The other style of sinks is the farmer‘s sink and the Belfast sink. The farmer sink is a deep type of sync with the finished front already. Meanwhile, the Belfast sink is a sink that has dam like overflow. This kind of kitchen sink has large ceramic sinks with the conventional visual aspect. On the other hand, the farmer‘s sink is set onto the counter top, unlike with the Belfast sink which is set under the work surfaces.
Marble sinks gives a shiny and elegant finish to your luxury kitchen. But maintaining this look can be a problem, due to the porosity of the marble. Sealing helps to prevent this to a particular extent. But various juices, soft drinks and house hold cleaning liquids may cause dirty spots on the marble. Vessel sinks, commonly known as basin sinks are becoming the popular trend in the luxury kitchen. Vessel sinks sit atop instead of being below the countertop unlike the traditional sink basins. So they are more visible and make a major design statement. They are now produced in a variety of unique and kitchen friendly materials including stones, glass and wood.
