Picking The Perfect Kitchen Sink

The kitchen sink. The heart of the most used room in your home- for many, at least. It is the quiet workhorse that modern lifestyles just cannot live without. You likely spend hours over it, washing fruits and vegetables in preparation for eating, draining pasta, watering houseplants, filling drinking vessels, and more.

These days, the kitchen sink is not only an integral “appliance”, but it’s also an aesthetic and beautiful addition to the décor of this useful room. Choosing the right one for your home can be fun, but it can also be overwhelming. There are many types of sinks out there made for many different purposes. There is also a wide range of prices you can pay to fit what you need. Once you have selected the perfect sink, consult a professional plumbing company to help install it properly the first time. Let’s look at some of the options available to you.

How many bowls do you need? There are single, 1 ½ bowl, double (most popular), and triple bowl varieties. Take into consideration what activities will be performed here. A single bowl sink is fine for minimal prep or just washing. 1 ½ bowl and the double bowl is great for average-sized kitchens and moderate prep work. For large kitchens and lots of cooking, consider a triple bowl variety.
