You can’t have a kitchen without a sink, now can you? And as it is with a modular kitchen, you can customize almost any module of your kitchen – sinks must be given top priority. One of the most utilized parts of the kitchen, sinks don’t just help you maintain, clean, and clear away the waste, but also help in giving your kitchen a unique look.
So, here are a few sink types that you can choose for your kitchen:
The most common of all types of kitchen sinks, undermount sinks are great in giving a really clean, sleek look to your kitchen. Blending well with your kitchen countertop, these are mostly made from stainless steel; but many of the modern sinks are also made from copper, making these sinks look exquisite. Also, people usually fear any leaks, which they shouldn’t, because of of the high strength epoxy and metal anchors fitted on the underside of the countertops. This helps to keep the sink in position, preventing any leaks, ever. These sinks are available in single, double, as well as triple bowl systems.
Farmhouse (Apron) Sinks
The type of sink that would remind you of the yesteryears, a farmhouse sink, also known fondly as apron sink because of its drop down styling just like an apron, is not used much these days. It was usually used in homes where food used to be prepared in huge proportions, and the kitchen was used almost in a rugged manner. As the utilitarian nature of the kitchens today has diminished, so has the use of these sinks.
Also known as ‘surface mounted’ sinks, these almost literally drop a hole in the kitchen countertop. Made mostly in porcelain, stainless steel and enameled cast iron, these are usually found in older homes.
These are the most durable ones, as these offer good resistance to heat and scratches. If you’re one of those really busy cooks, then this one’s just for you, as you wouldn’t have to worry about putting a hot pan directly into the sink and getting the sink surface marred. Plus, being available in various designs, you will easily find a composite sink to match your kitchen design.
