Kitchen renovations and remodels are an exciting time for the homeowner. There are plenty of decisions to be made from style to elements, cabinets, countertops, flooring, and more. But there is one detail many people forget to consider, and it can make such a difference in the kitchen’s overall design. That is why we have compiled this information for our clients on how to choose a kitchen sink.
You would think it is a cut-and-dry decision, but in reality, there are so many choices available today. And if you have ever been into a store specializing in fixtures, the process can be overwhelming. That is why we suggest you narrow it down through research before you go into one of those vast showrooms. Trust us when we say it will make your decision so much easier.
And in your decision, please be sure to have all the appropriate measurements and the rest so you can make an informed decision.
First, begin with the size of the sink currently installed and determine if you want to make it larger or smaller. Measure the width, length, depth, and depth of the counter. Also, be sure to measure the backsplash if there is one. Write all these down and present them when you are ordering.
Sink installation is the second thing to consider. There are several styles of installation for you to think about. Each one comes in various sizes with different counter requirements.
For durability as well as design, the material the sink is made of makes a big difference. Here is a sampling of what is currently on the market.
Which basin fits the needs of your family. If you are a master chef, you may want three compartments. Do you have a large family? Then you may wish to have one large basin. Single basins offer a vast and open soaking area, and they tend to come in deep basins. Double basin sinks are great for multitasking, washing, and prepping. And Three sinks are great for chefs but take up a lot of your valuable counter space.
Now there are the more minor details we can go through a bit faster.
You heard it right. Sinks now have accessories! Who knew there were so many choices for one simple spot in the home? But if you think about it, you use the sink at every meal you eat in the house. If you grill, you use the sink. Do you like sous vide cooking? You’ll need the sink. Are you using the oven or stove? There will still be dishes. So it is an essential piece to get right in the kitchen.
Today’s sinks have the following accessories to go with particular sinks.
As with any work in your home, there are plenty of homeowners who will attempt a DIY job on replacing a sink. However, we do not recommend that method. Calling a professional remodeler out to install your new sink is the best option. And at Georgia Home Remodeling, we have just the plumbing crew to get it done right.
You see, most of today’s sinks require additional support to sustain the weight of the sink. It would be tragic to install a sink and have it come crashing down. Unfortunately, that happens all the time to homeowners.
