One of the most prominent, most used fixtures in the kitchen are your kitchen sinks, therefore buying one should be given enough consideration and price should not be the only factor. Your kitchen sink should be durable, functional and of course, it should also match the overall theme/look you want for your kitchen.

Here's some tips on how to choose the kitchen sink that would best suit you.

  • Decide what kind mounting you want for your kitchen sink. The choices are top mount or undermount sinks. Top mount sinks are self-rimmed so its easier to install but is less durable and a bit tougher to clean and maintain. Undermount sinks on the other hand, fit seamlessly on countertops so its easier to clean and much more durable. But consider that this only works well with concrete or solid countertops.
  • Kitchen sink material. There are ones made of porcelain, stainless steel, metal and other materials. If you are looking for durability, affordability, ease of installation, then consider kitchen sinks made of stainless steel.
  • Style. Sinks also comes in all manners of shapes, styles and sizes. The choice all depends on your lifestyle. Some kitchen sinks have single, double or triple bowls, some have deep bowls, apron fronts or some just one large bowl with dividers to make it flexible depending on use.
  • Make sure it matches the faucets you have or planning to have.
  • If you are opting for other non-metal kitchen sink then choose the color with care. Make sure it matches the overall theme of your kitchen.
  • Quality should come first in choosing your kitchen sink. Kitchen sinks are not fixtures that can be replaced frequently or on a whim. It would last for years so choose one that would really serve your needs well.
