Choosing a new kitchen sink

The sink is an important part of any kitchen, and it actually makes up one of the three pivotal points of the golden triangle. This is the design triangle between the fridge, sink and oven, and for a practical and useful kitchen, the path between these three points needs to be clear. But what kind of sink should you choose for your new kitchen? And does it really matter? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design experts. And we help homeowners and property developers make the right kitchen design choices. As a result, we have produced this guide to choosing a new kitchen sink.

Choosing a new kitchen sink

If you want your kitchen to be perfect, you should consider the type and the style of sink you install in your new kitchen. The sink might not be the centerpiece of your kitchen, but it can contribute to the overall aesthetic of your space. So there are some things you should think about, including:

  • The material of the sink- the kitchen sink can be created from a variety of materials including corian and other solid surface materials, granite, ceramic as well as stainless steel. You should opt for a material that suits the rest of your kitchen, as well as the style of your space.
  • The type of sink- the kitchen sink can be an over mount sink, mounted on top of the work surface, or an under mount sink, with the sink underneath the top of the work surface. The over mount sink is the most popular choice across the UK, but the under mount is also incredibly stylish, and contemporary in design. You could also opt for an apron sink, popular in farmhouse kitchens, which offers a much larger basin. Or you could go for a draining board sink, which will have a basin and draining board built into one unit.
