Every kitchen remodel gets a new sink. This is an exciting part of the new remodel project because your sink is a large factor in how the kitchen looks when it is complete. It is also the most used item in the kitchen which means you have to love it and it needs to perform.
Most of the time we are removing the original stainless steel sink that is stained, scratched and sounds tinny when you put something in it, or an old porcelain sink that is chipped, marked or dis-colored. This is largely because the availability of sink products in the past was limited or there was not allot of thought put in to the type of sink that would work best.
“Some will say-it’s just a sink. I say- you are remodeling and you need a sink. Do you know what your options are”?
First, let’s consider that in today’s kitchens the sink style and color should blend with the room. Then look at the fact that we really do not want the sink to be a focal point. It should be that oou ahh wow factor of “that’s really cool” and it pulls the room together.
Second, I always caution people that you should be using your dishwasher and not using a double sink to wash and rinse. Dishwashers today are energy saving, and have small wash capabilities so you do not need to do small loads in your sink unless you just love the extra work. It does not have to be a double sink because that is what you have always had.
Third, do you wash baking sheets, roasting pans, large items on a regular basis? Then using a single 33” may be perfect! But you have small items and you don’t want to fill the sink? That’s what rubber-maid containers are for.
Mostly it is what you want! Once you understand the options you can make the best decision for your new kitchen. Porcelain, cast, stainless, granite, fireclay, glass, quartz, plastic are all used for sinks. The sizes are limitless, the colors fascinating, and the shapes add a whole new dimension as to how the sinks look and perform. We will help you with this. We will also help you understand how it is installed is imperative, especially since most sinks today are installed under the countertop. That is an entirely different topic I will address when we design your kitchen.
In the meantime here are photos of some of the sinks we have installed. Browse through and take a moment to explore some of the possibilities…
