Choosing what kind of sink to install depends upon the type of countertops you have. If you have a laminate top you have a choice of a metal frame sink or a self rimming sink. However, if you have a solid surface countertop you have a larger variety of sinks to choose from. The choices you have are: the apron front which is reminiscent of the farmhouse sink; the tile which is square and fits into any tiled countertop; the metal frame which is attached directly to the countertop with a metal frame; The self rimming which sets on the countertop and supports itself that way; and the undermount which is recessed and sets flush with the countertop.
There are wide varieties of kitchen sink designs available. These styles range from several heavy duty applications to non heavy duty ones. There are some which are installed below the surface of the counter top. This style is called bottom mount or under mount. The design of this sink is that the material in the counter top is visible at the hole of it. This style of it is usually applied with silicone-based sealants for waterproof joints. This is necessary because this type of sink is clamped into the bottom of the material. The advantage of this design is that it gives a medieval style to the kitchen. This look will give a more fashionable style to the kitchen and enhances the quality of the environment.
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.
Depending on the size of your kitchen, you should be able to find an apron kitchen sink that will fit into your kitchen countertop. As for pricing, it rests on the the model of kitchen sink that you decide on. With higher quality materials that tend to last longer, you would be paying more. Size, colour and brand will also play a part. If you are going for a country style theme, then a copper sink might be something to consider. But be prepared that a copper sink would cost more than one made from fireclay.
