Types of kitchen sinks

The sink is one of the most suffered elements in the kitchen, but it also has to correspond with the design that your kitchen is going to have.

The first thing you have to decide is the style of your sink and the shape. The market offers us a variety of models and finishes from modern to rustic. Choose the right material.

Stainless steel sinks

The stainless steel sink is the most widely used option today, but not all steels are the same. The thickness of the sink can vary. A thicker sink is more expensive, but of better quality. They also usually have built-in soundproofing to reduce the noise produced by the water jet hitting the surface of the sink.

Synthetic sinks

Synthetic sinks are a mixture of granite, quartz, and resin. They are manufactured in a similar way to quartz and porcelain worktops, and lately, they are used a lot, because they offer us a huge amount of finishes, which allows us to customize the design of the kitchen. They are also easy to clean. Besides, they are sinks that you can make them from the same material as the worktop, this way you won’t have those joints that we don’t like very much and you will get minimalism and spaciousness. But be careful when cleaning because they have the same thing that happens to natural stone sinks, their Achilles’ heel – it’s the edge.
