4 Considerations for Your Kitchen Sink

Interior Design,Home Improvement
When it comes to sinks, they’re often an afterthought. Everything and the kitchen sink! It’s understandable, especially when you’re caught up in the excitement of choosing the perfect granite countertops or customizing your cabinets. However, “and the kitchen sink” shouldn’t be a decision you make lightly. It’s where you’ll be scrubbing those cast iron pans by hand, doing prep work for those family meals and maybe even giving your new holiday puppy a bath in a pinch.

Your kitchen sink isn’t an add-on accessory, a minor detail or something that requires no foresight. Savvy shoppers might be able to score a deal, like getting a free stainless steel sink of their choice when installing drool-worthy countertops. If this is the case, that whole “you get what you pay for” adage doesn’t apply. On the other hand, it also doesn’t mean you should just go with the first option you see.

Here’s what to think about when hand-picking your sink, and how to match it to your needs:

1. Who needs a double bowl?

For the most part, you have two types of kitchen sinks: Double bowls and single bowls. Double bowls are just what they sound like: Two bowls (or “sinks”) side by side instead of one. It’s great for those who have a lot of hand wash-only items, such as iron or crystal, and want a soaking station as well as a rinsing station. However, there are also a few additional considerations on top of single vs. double, like…

2. Are all bowls created equally?

Well, they can be. You can choose from a double bowl sink that has bowls of equal size, but there are also double bowl sinks that have a variety of size combinations. Think back to what you use your sink for, and the answer should be clear. There are some nearly professional home chefs who prefer having a smaller bowl option for their prep work and a larger bowl for bigger jobs. Before choosing a sink style, spend a week paying close attention to how you use your sink—and how you’d like to use it if there were no limits.

3. All the single sinks…

A single bowl sink is an excellent option for those who basically use their sinks to rinse off food particles before putting just about everything in the dishwasher. You probably don’t cook from scratch on a regular basis. On the other hand, maybe you have a few pots and pans that are quite ample, and you need a large, single vessel to scrub them down without making a mess.

4. Beware of sharp edges! Or not.

The actual shape of the bowls can also play a factor—you have square bowls, oval bowls, bowls with a variety of soft, rounded edges and those with an arch just at the top. This is largely a question of aesthetics as well as the shape and size of your most commonly washed items. For example, an uber modern kitchen might be complemented by a square sink. A kitchen with a rustic farm feel goes great with a double bowl option with rounded edges.

Before you “sink” your money into a certain style or get a little too eager grabbing the first freebie sink you qualify for, step back and consider how you use your wash station. Something as seemingly simple as the shape or size can make cleanup a breeze or a nightmare worse than scraping burned cheese off a casserole dish.
