Kitchen Remodeling: Don’t Forget the Sink
Some may not consider the sink to be the centerpiece of the kitchen. But if you think about it, the sink really can be the essence of your kitchen, which can bring together the design and style of the entire space. If you want to remodel your kitchen, consider these different types of sinks that could further enhance the beauty and functionality of your space.
In modern kitchens, fully integrated sinks are a popular option. These types of sinks are seamlessly incorporated into your kitchen countertops. Cleaning is a breeze because you don’t have to worry about digging any gunk out of molding or caulk. Usually, these types of sinks have to be custom made, so that the countertop material can be cut accordingly.
An apron farmhouse-style sink looks great in almost any kitchen. With an exposed front and a large basin, these sinks are beautiful and add a new level of functionality. You would have the room to wash dishes for an army in these types of sinks, so it is ideal for those with large families or who frequently entertain. More often than not, these sinks are made of ceramic, which can provide you with a durable, long-lasting basin without sacrificing style.
If you’re going for a more classic look in your kitchen, you should consider incorporating a stone sink into the mix. For a seamless look, choose a sink that is the same material as your countertops. But if you are wanting a bolder sink, opt for a stone that contrasts your counters. Either way, it is a timeless look that will last you through any trend.
Tile sinks are for those who want to add a little more pizzazz to their kitchen. Like hand painted or mosaic, tiled sinks will stand out and complement your backsplash. These sinks can make a smaller kitchen pop, creating an extraordinary space. For more durability, you can layer your tile over a material like stainless steel.
When you’re on a budget, one way to save money when you remodel your kitchen is to purchase a refurbished sink. Various second-hand stores will have these kinds of sinks for sale, so you could choose the style that best suits your kitchen. If there are minor cracks or scratches in the basin of the sink, you can ask a professional about making repairs.
Usually, kitchens in restaurants will use these kinds of sinks because of their convenience factor, but by adding a professional sink to your kitchen, you could amp up the style of your space. There are different types of sinks that can be labeled as “professional,” but we’re talking about the ones that are heavy-duty, stainless steel and freestanding. Such a sink will certainly stand out in your kitchen, if that is the look that you are going for.
