How to Pick a New Sink for your Kitchen Remodel

If the kitchen is the heart of the home then the sink is the heart of the kitchen. Used day in day out for meal preparation and washing up - the sink is the most active work center in the kitchen. When it comes to kitchen remodeling, choosing the right sink for your lifestyle will make your new kitchen a joy to work in.

Learn with Remodeling Companies what factors to consider when shopping for a new kitchen sink:

Measurements
Kitchen sinks are measured by depth, front-to-back and side-to-side. Sink bowls should be deep and wide to accommodate your largest cutlery. Standard depth measurement for sinks is 7-8 inches, but for a higher price you can purchase deeper bowls of 10 inches or more - ideal for large families or chefs.

Shape
Rectangle is the most popular shape for kitchen sinks, and is available in one, two or three-bowl designs. Rectangular shaped sinks vary in side-to-side measurements, and are available anywhere from 12 to 72 inches. A wide single bowl can handle large pans and therefore suits large families or those who like to cook big meals on a frequent basis. A two-bowl kitchen sink provides two narrow basins – one for washing and a second for rinsing.

Under or Over Mount
Following specifications in your kitchen design, installation of your new sink will be conducted from above or below the countertop. Above counter or self rimming sinks are most common in kitchens – sinks are mounted from above the counter, and rim the counter surface from all sides. Self-rimming sinks suit every counter material. Undermounted sinks are installed from below the counter without an overhanging rim, and therefore cannot be fitted in laminate countertops. Sinks can also be purchased as integral parts of countertops with no visible seams or rims.
