Sinks have changed over the last 10-15 years. Back then, you would walk into the store and automatically choose a double sink. Now, there are more style options and brands to consider. In this article, you will learn how to buy a sink and why single bowl sinks have become more popular. Then we will look at your best options. 


How Do You Buy a Sink?

Sinks and appliances, in general, follow cabinet specifications. The most common cabinet is 25 inches. You see it all the time with single D-shaped sinks. Other common cabinet sizes are 30, 33, and 38 inches. 

Why single bowl sinks?

Double bowl sinks used to be hugely popular. To this day, many people including my parents have a double bowl sink in their kitchen. The whole idea of a double bowl sink is to separate places for washing and drying dishes. Another use was the smaller side sinks were designed to scrap the leftovers off your dishes before washing them in the larger bowl.

Double Bowl Sink
However, it is impractical with larger dishes because of the divider between the two bowls. About 10 years ago, Franke, a well-known company specializing in sinks and faucets, removed the divider. Since then single bowl sinks have become increasingly popular. One of the more common trends we have seen in some of our recent projects is placing a larger sink in your kitchen island. Some people even have multiple kitchen sinks.

Most stainless-steel sinks range from 20 gauges to 16 gauges stainless steel. The lower number is better as it dictates a thicker, more insulated sink. Sinks vary from hollow to sound deadening.

You are probably aware of quietness in dishwashers and maybe hoods, but you can also buy a quiet sink as well. What we mean by a "quiet sink" is that you will not hear the water running. 

Some builders and cabinet shops will offer you free sinks with the purchase of their cabinets. Just be careful. You do not want a high gauge, hollow sink.

Now that we have covered the basics of sinks, let's take a look at some of the quality large sinks made by Madeli, Rohl, Franke, and our own private label Yale brand.
