Choosing the right sink for your worktops

One of the most important fixtures in any kitchen is the sink. Not only do you need to use your sink to wash your dishes, but it can also come in handy during food preparation. When choosing the right sink, there are a few factors you will need to consider before selecting the ideal design.

The first decision you will need to make is to choose between top-mounted and under-mount sinks. The top-mounted variety is popular for older or traditional kitchens whereas under-mount sinks are the top choice for those who have natural stone worktops.

You will then need to choose the appropriate material. Sinks are available in several materials including stainless steel, composite granite, enameled cast iron, copper, and bronze. Your choice will depend on your needs and preferences regarding durability and style. You want to make sure, of course, that your sink complements your worktops.

Finally, you will need to choose the right size, whether you want a single or double sink, and plan for your taps too. Remember, you need to know what kind of sink you will be choosing before ordering custom natural stone worktops. This is because you will need to have a space cut out for the sink. If it is too large or small, it will not fit your sink. The best procedure is to selected the stone colour and design first. Then you can choose your sink. It’s often best to purchase the sink so that you are absolutely sure that it will not end up sold out by the time your worktops arrive. Provide your worktop supplier with the measurements of the sink as well as any other fixtures that they need to accommodate.
