There’s a wide range of styles and finishes to chose from when it comes to a sink replacement. Firstly let’s consider the material you’d prefer for your sink replacement, as sinks are available in ceramic, stainless steel, and granite.
Ceramic sinks have been around for a long time and are still extremely popular, and for a number of good reasons too. Surprisingly robust, a ceramic sink can take everyday use without suffering a scratch, although you should be careful with those heavier pots and cutlery, which can chip just about any sink if carelessly handled.
It’s also resistant to extreme temperatures, such as hot pots and pans and frozen foods, as well as common household chemicals. It won’t take on the flavours or smells of foods it comes into contact with either, while even stubborn stains can usually be relatively easily removed. In fact, ceramic is easily cleaned and very hygienic.
No other sink comes in the wide variety of colours, or the amazing array of shapes and styles. This means there’s a ceramic sink out there that’s just perfect for your kitchen or bathroom.
Stainless Steel sinks are remarkably durable and practical. They are not only cheaper to buy, but they’re also usually much cheaper to install too. Whereas heavier sinks require extra under-mount support, a lighter stainless sink only requires an easier installed top-mount support.
They’re resistant to most cleaning products, heat, peeling, cracking and chipping, if a little prone to scratching and water spotting. However, a sink with a satin finish can provide additional protection from scratches and rusting.
Thanks to their clean, neutral look, and the variety of finishes, styles and designs available, stainless steel sinks can complement or match your appliances, fixtures and fittings.
Granite sinks are incredibly beautiful yet extremely functional, granite gives you superior heat, scratch, chip and stain resistance while seamlessly blending into your granite worktops.
It’s a far more natural look than you’ll achieve with any other kind of sink, giving you a blend of tradition and modernity. There are also far more colours to choose from than you might expect.
What I should be Looking For In A Kitchen Sink
Rather than the standard single bowl with drainer, you might like to consider a more versatile and practical double bowl, or even a double with a central half bowl. One of the hardest-working items you’ll use, your kitchen sink can actually help make your kitchen tasks easier, whether it’s washing-up or rinsing salads.
Many people prefer to have a drainer as an integral part of their sink, which is where stainless steel sinks come into their own. But ceramic and granite bowls can be blended into a worktop with the right type of mounting.
