There are a large range of different kitchen sinks. Today we will give a brief overview on the three most popular sinks.
Each sink type brings design benefits to a kitchen.
Most common type of kitchen sink. Installed from above, a hole is cut out the counter material and the sink is inserted from above.
Easy to install
Overall cost relatively low
Sink rim prevents you sweeping water and waste from the counter into the sink
Rim requires additional cleaning
Some don’t like the look of the sink rim interrupting the clean lines of the bench top
The sink is attached at the bottom of the counter with special clips
Easy to clean bench top, no rim getting in the way
Smooth, continual look
Residue can build where the sink and counter met
Tend to be more expensive and require skilled installer
You may be limited to the size of your sink
Butlers or Farmhouse Sinks
Large single basin that usually sit at the front of the counter.
Generous size, making washing large platters and pots a breeze
As the front of the sink is the counter it makes the sink a little closer to the user, less bending forward
The look is very popular with the Hamptons/Traditional kitchen look
Can be messy due to the sink being closer to front of the bench. Water dripping.
Can be expensive compared to other style sink
Remember, every person is different which means that every kitchen is different, the key here is to find what’s best for you.
