Kitchen sinks and faucets are essential elements of any kitchen. When it comes to remodeling your kitchen, you want your space to turn heads, so don’t overlook the sinks and faucets. But with all of the options available to you, how do you go about choosing the right one? Well, you’re in luck, because in this edition of our blog, we’ll show you how to choose the right kitchen faucets and sinks.
Stainless Steel Kitchen Sinks and Faucets
What are your kitchen surfaces made of? If your surfaces are granite or some other type of engineered stone, choose stainless steel. Stainless steel stands the best chance of enduring whatever cook adventures you undertake in the kitchen. This is greatly helpful if your sink routinely sees a lot of heavy objects being washed or otherwise interacted with while in the sink.
Surprisingly, the best type of stainless steel for sinks is a lower gauge steel. Remember, lower gauge means higher quality. Sound absorption is another feature to consider, particularly if you find stainless steel sinks and faucets to be noisier while in use.
Enamel and Composite Kitchen Sinks and Faucets
If you’re looking for a gorgeous addition to your kitchen, consider enamel-coated cast iron. Also, composite sinks are more affordable options made of multiple materials. Enamel was once the prominent style of sink, but not anymore.
Also, Consider Number and Functions
You’ll want to consider how many sinks and faucets you’ll need. Double bowls are common but think about the size difference between the bowls, which are often designed to accommodate larger items that need to be washed by hand. Another consideration is what you plan on using them for. Flexible arms that can reach and spray around the sink are useful, doubly so for filling pots and pans. Garbage disposals are also essential. Faucets should provide hot water automatically as well, but you’d be surprised how that isn’t a standard feature. Chrome, nickel, pewter, and bronze are all useful for the busy kitchen, too.
