6 Sink Options For Your Kitchen Construction
If you think sinks are boring and standard, you’re missing out! You are not limited to a standard double basin, metal sink. There are many beautiful, convenient and functional sink options for your remodel or new construction. Your sink can make a big difference in your day-to-day because it is one of the most used items in your kitchen. Here are six sink options to help you plan for your kitchen construction:
1) Deep Basin Sink
Are you a cook? Do you use many pots and pans? If so, you may want to consider a deep basin sink. They are ten inches deep – three to four inches more than a standard sink. Be aware that this may not be the best option if you are tall or have a bad back as you may be bending forward more while doing dishes.
4) Single Basin Sink
These sinks are ideal for bakers! Single basin sinks can be large to accommodate cake pans or cookie sheets, or small for a butler’s pantry or bar.
3) Low Divide
If you like to wash dishes by hand, you may prefer a divide. If you want the best of both worlds, some sink options offer a low divide in the middle allowing you to separate clean and dirty dishes while still having the benefit of a deep sink.
4) Mounting Options
A drop-in sink is the most common style of sink with the rim or lip fitting on top of the countertop opening. There are several different mounting types for sinks. An undermount sits below the countertop, and is very popular to hide the lip of the sink. Another style that is commonly selected in new construction is a farmhouse, or apron, sink that has a sink front instead of placement within a countertop or cabinet.
5) Sink With Offset Drain
An offset drain is closer to the back of the sink. This type of sink allows for more space for storage in the cabinet under the sink. Another benefit is that you can place dishes in the sink without plugging the drain.
6) Sink Accessories
Kitchen sinks now offer accompanying accessories to add more function to your space. A suspended grid can keep dishes off of the bottom of your sink and also double as a drying rack. Drain pans and fitted cutting boards are additional options that can be customized with sinks.
