How to Buy a Kitchen Sink
The kitchen sink is the focal point in today’s kitchen. It is used for all food preparation and cleaning, so you want to choose yours wisely.
Before you go out and pick up a new sink, you need to know the size of your base cabinet. This is important because it will determine what size sink you end up with. Base cabinets are typically 24", 27", 30", 33", 36" or 42". The bigger the base cabinet, the bigger sink you can buy. This will also determine the type of sink you can fit, whether it’s a single bowl, or a double bowl. For most double bowl sinks, you will need a minimum of 33” base cabinet.
There are 3 different types of sinks
Top Mount Sink
Farm House Sink
Material of the sink
Once you’ve picked out your sink style and size, you must then pick out the material of the sink. It can be Stainless steel, Fireclay, or Porcelain-Enamel.
