Your kitchen sink is essential for both stylistic and functional purposes. A sink can completely set the tone for the whole room.
Do you want a deep sink that can hide your dishes? How about a subtly integrated sink for style purposes? Have you considered an additional prep sink in your kitchen? Whether you want to go with a more traditional option like the drop-in sink or more of a statement piece like the farmhouse sink, there’s no reason your sink can’t be the centerpiece of the kitchen. There is more to consider than you may think with a sink, so keep reading to learn about the options you have.
Drop-In Kitchen Sink
Drop-in or self-rimming sinks will be supported by a thin ram that extends above the countertop’s surface. Drop-ins are the most common sink in most kitchens and are the easiest and usually the cheapest sink to install.
An undermount sink allows for an uninterrupted surface between the countertop and sink, meaning the sink is mounted underneath the countertop, hence the name. This style is convenient for cleaning. With no edge to catch crumbs, you can easily wipe your countertop debris directly into the sink and wash them down the drain.
Integrated Kitchen Sinks
Integrating your sink into your countertop provides a modern and sleek look. The sink will be integrated into the counters with that same material, whether your countertops are made from natural stone or composite materials. This distinctive look is both stylish and functional.
Prep Sink in the Kitchen
A prep sink is separated from the main sink and is usually a smaller size. However, prep sinks do come in a variety of shapes and sizes. These sinks are often equipped with floating boards or racks for maximum functionality. A prep sink provides an allocated place for prep outside of your regular kitchen sink.
A single bowl is usually a more oversized sink, which can come in hand for washing large items, such as pots and pans. But a double bowl provides a separator that could allow you to separate clean and dirty dishes or soak some dishes while washing others in separate compartments.
Farmhouse Kitchen Sink
For a large and timeless sink, try out a farmhouse sink. A farmhouse sink is often referred to as an apron front sink. With an exposed front that usually protrudes past the edge of the surrounding cabinets, the farmhouse sink is a unique stylistic statement for your kitchen. This style provides plenty of space; if you’re looking for a little extra sink space to store those dirty dishes, a farmhouse sink may be the answer for you.
