Choosing a new kitchen sink has to involve more than just considerations of style. The sink’s functional features should also match the lifestyle of its daily users. A sink that’s a good fit for a big and busy family likely won’t be the best choice for someone who lives alone and is rarely home. Use these recommendations to guide the kitchen sink selection process.
Farmhouse and Oversized Sinks for the Biggest Families
For busy families where half a dozen or more people have to share a kitchen, consider a farmhouse sink. These large and open sinks are ideal for handling the larger dishes and pots required for cooking big family dinners. When a dirty dish needs soaking to remove stuck-on food, this kind of sink is deep enough to allow for washing to continue above. Yet, for smaller kitchens that are less commonly used, an oversized sink may be unnecessary.
Stylish Single Bowls for Empty Nesters
For a kitchen remodel aimed at downsizing after family members move out, a smaller single-bowl sink is usually the best option. Undermount sinks are a great choice because they need minimal maintenance and cleaning. The clean look of a lower sink mounting option makes the kitchen look streamlined and minimalistic. It’s perfect for smaller homes and remodels that aim to take advantage of the existing space.
Stainless Steel Double Bowl for the Home Chef
Keep dishes organized while maintaining free space for washing produce or utensils with a double-bowl sink. Home chefs that deal with a lot of greasy messes and food particles may want the ease of cleaning that comes from stainless steel materials in particular. Porcelain and fire clay tend to show off debris a little easier, making them less popular materials for home chefs who cook multiple times a day before cleaning up.
Wall-Mounted Style for the Busy Professional
Finally, kitchens that see relatively little meal preparation use may only need a simple wall-mounted sink. These vintage-style sinks can offer a lot of style in a space-saving and practical package. They free up counter space while proving perfectly capable of handling dishwashing chores and more.
