Kitchen Sinks and Faucets

When it comes to kitchen renovation, sinks and faucets can often be overlooked for cabinets, flooring and more; but one of the most functional pieces of your kitchen should be all but ignored. In fact, choosing the right sink and faucet can either complement your countertops or be an eyesore. When considering your choices for a kitchen sink, consider the design you’ve chosen for your kitchen, including lighting, countertops, doorknobs, and other accent pieces in your kitchen. Also consider if you want your faucet center-set, and how far you want the spout from the base of the sink. Your faucet choice should either match or complement the rest of the designing and other hardware in your kitchen.

When choosing a finish for your faucet, it is important to consider the quality of your selection. While plated materials may help your wallet, it will most likely not stand the test of time and you might find yourself replacing it sooner rather than later. Materials range from brass, nickel, chrome, bronze, and black. But we can’t stop there because in addition to the materials there are also a variety of finishes such as brushed, polished or matte.

Your sink selection is dependent on the type of countertops you have in your existing space unless you are replacing them as well. If that is the case, then the sky is the limit. You can opt for a vessel style sink that is reminiscent of 18th-century pitchers and bowls, or you can elect a more modern bowl style. Then you have the tradition inset style sink. Beyond the style of the sink, you will find a variety of options including porcelain, enamel, glass and stainless steel.
