Kitchen sinks and faucets are some of the most active and overloaded parts of any kitchen. What do you wish from yours? Whether you like to rinse veggies, hand wash the glassware, give your plates a wash before the dishwasher or simply tot to your kitchen style, you can be sure that you will get what you need.
Before remodeling your kitchen
The kitchen may be the home’s heart, but the sink manages most of the everyday chores. That is because it is the only area of work used for both preparing meals and cleaning up after them. While quality sinks can go on for 15 year or more, they do break or waste. Their finishes begin to chip or get dull, and disturbing and bothersome leaks show up in a baffling manner around the drain and the rim. And if you are planning to get your kitchen remodeled, it is better to replace the faucet and the sink.
Kitchen Sinks- materials and costs
Companies offer sinks in an array of styles and materials, from durable porcelain to gleaming stainless steel or cast iron to many latest other materials. Sinks are also among the lowest priced item or unit of a kitchen remodel. Although some sophisticated models carry 4-digit price tags, there is an abundance of durable and flawless sinks on the market beginning at the price of about 200 dollars.
Kitchen size vs. Sink size
With so many choices- multiple bowls to single bowls of various sizes, depths and shapes- you must consider the room size and how you are going to use the sink. Huge multi-basin models of the sink, which are famous these days, will knock out a small kitchen.
The NKBA, i.e. The National Kitchen and Bath Association, an industry trade group, advises a standard size of 22 inches x 24 inches single-bowl model for the kitchens whose area is lesser than 150 sq. ft. (The bowl itself is the dimension of about 16 inches x 21 inches). For bigger kitchens, you can have the extra convenience of triple or double bowls which allow you to heap the dishes in 1 bowl and rinse off the veggies in the other.
