Kitchen sinks have been a home necessity for years and yet consumers have been given little options in the past in the way of design or function. Well those mundane sink days are over. Today, choosing the perfect kitchen sink boils down to how you live your life and what design styles you like. Options range from sink styles to designs, textures, materials, colors and sizes.
There are hundreds of kitchen sink manufacturers with hundreds of sink varieties. To narrow down your search BeesonDirect recommends visiting the Kitchen Sink Search page and narrowing your search on which manufacturers fit your criteria.
BeesonDirect recommends to find the right kitchen sink for your home to first choose the style of sink that fits your needs. Take ROHL's Fireclay apron sink with its deep basin area perfect for large pot and pan cleaning. Apron sinks were introduced in 1897 by Shaw of Darwin, England, and today are still as versatile and durable, made with genuine Fireclay, a natural material that will never rust. The finished glaze repels stains, scratches and dings. Many sink manufacturers offer the same style kitchen sinks but with different functionality or material. For example Franke has their version of the gracious living apron sink, with its hugely accommodating deep depth, in a commercial grade stainless which can also be wall mounted.
Drop-in sinks have always been popular and now there are many different shapes to choose from. Franke offers a specialty drop-in corner sink with three compartments, two sinks with a hardy drain board. If the traditional rectangular drop-in sink is your preference there are plenty of varying sized one-and-a-half bowl options with extra deep bowls for soaping up your dishes and a large area for rinsing large bowls and pans.
Under mount sinks have become popular with the installation of specialty countertops like granite or concrete. Villeroy & Boch produce Fireclay undermount sinks with non-connecting double sinks for a modern look. These sinks are fired at 2,200 degrees so the material is extremely hard and difficult to scratch. Their exclusive Ceramicplus ™ finish is hygienic with an ultra smooth, dirt repellent surface. Villeroy & Boch’s popular undermount double connecting sinks come in a variety of shapes that can be fitted with optional custom drain grids for cleaning fruits and vegetables. For those master chefs out there the Franke Magnum ™ series is a culinary masterpiece. The sink is open below exposing the sink legs for a contemporary industrial look and the sink deck houses a wooden knife rack and three deep utensil wells. Want more? The Magnum™ is Franke’s quintessential work sink including two large sinks, a drain grid, sliding cutting board, utensil and bottle storage. Allow the chef in you to be inspired in making great food with an easier prep and clean up sink.
If function must also include elegance consider Stone Forest’s Moso Bamboo vessel sink or their bronze Verona sink (see photo at top) for a sleek look. Both of these kitchen sinks offer an evergreen appeal and their eco-friendly materials fit in well with a naturalist home décor.
