Before you decide on the shape and size of your kitchen sink, you should consider how you use your sink in your daily life. In that way, you can be sure that the sink fits your needs.
Shape and size
Consider what size of sink is most suitable for your kitchen. The size should follow the width of the cabinet under the sink, if you want to be sure there is enough space.
Many people underestimate the impact of the sink size: if the plan allows it, it can be useful to prioritize a large sink for daily usage in the kitchen. This is where you prepare your vegetables, cut your flowers and wash your pots and pans. It can be nice to have plenty of space in the sink – and as a bonus, it leaves room underneath for garbage assortment.
Also the shape of the sink is worth considering: it can be a great advantage to choose a sink that is easy to clean and maintain. Most sinks have a built-in drop in the bottom allowing the water to float naturally to the drain. It can also be an advantage with rounded corners in the sink to make sure it is possible to clean the sink easily.
What material should you choose for your sink?
Just like the material of the countertop, the sink material impacts the final look of the kitchen, but also the level of maintenance. Maybe you prefer a material to fit other details in the kitchen such as the handles, faucet or color of the kitchen. Also the level of maintenance should be part of your considerations.
