When you are remodeling your kitchen, you certainly don’t go by the old saying: “Everything but the kitchen sink.” More likely, the kitchen sink is one of your main concerns when it comes to designing your remodel. This is a focal point in any kitchen, as the location where you wash dishes, prepare food, fill up water for boiling, and clean up before a meal. Here are some considerations you may want to keep in mind when planning this part of your home.
Two Bowls or One?
One of the main questions to ask yourself when installing a new sink is whether you want one bowl or two. This is entirely based on preference, and you may need to assess your current situation to make an informed decision. For example, do you your find yourself using both sides of your double bowl sink when you clean up? Or would you prefer one large open bowl? What may be a more important question is whether you want a deeper kitchen sink than you are used to, in order to fill up larger pots.
Types of Materials
Another point of concern is which type of material you would prefer for your sink. Stainless steel is a timeless choice that is easy to clean and durable, as is cast iron. A copper or soapstone sink can make a statement, but remember that this design should last you for a long period of time, and you don’t want the material to outlive the décor in your kitchen.
Adding a Sink for Food Prep
You won’t have to deal with too many cooks in the kitchen when you add in a second sink. If you have the right amount of space, a plumber can help to set up your pipes to accommodate your new food prep sink in an area set apart from the main sink, such as an island.
