What to consider when choosing a kitchen sink

Where do you start? Start with yourself. What’s the general style of your kitchen? How do you use your kitchen sink? Do you handwash? Do you use the drainer, and if you do, would you be more comfortable having it on the right side or left? While the choices are plenty, don’t let that confuse you, we’re here to help you create your dream kitchen, and find the best kitchen sink to suit your lifestyle.

1. Topmount or Undermount

Topmount is simply dropped into the available cavity and the edge aligns with the counter. It is easier to replace or mend. Undermount is placed under the surface, exposing the edges of the counter.

2. Single or Double bowl

A single bowl sink works great in a smaller kitchen, or when you’re looking to save space. A double bowl sink offers more room and is great for those who love to multitask while they cook. If you’re looking to simply refresh your sink, make sure your new one fits in your existing sink cavity.

3. Material

Choose from stainless steel, chrome, fragranite, tectonite or moulded granite. Discover the many ranges and brands that offer these materials.

Single or double sink?

Consider how you use your current sink and what design would best suit your needs. Do you regularly use large pans or trays that don’t fit into your split sink? Then perhaps, a spacious single sink would be your solution. On the other hand, if you often find yourself multi-tasking, such as rinsing vegetables while also doing the dishes, then a double sink would offer more flexibility. Also, remember that larger sinks would take up more counter space.
