Designer Kitchen Sinks

Kitchen sinks have come a long way. Today’s sinks are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials, and can include a wide range of accessories, including cutting boards, utensil trays, drying racks and colanders. Homeowners are opting for large, single-basin sinks rather than double sinks to make room for bulky pots and pans. The primary sink is often accompanied by a smaller prep sink.

Available in stainless steel, porcelain and enameled cast iron, self-rimming or drop-in sinks are the most popular type of sink and the easiest to install.

Undermount sinks, which are installed below the countertop, offer a seamless look and allow for easy countertop cleanup. This type of sink can only be used with solid-surface countertops, such as granite, marble or composite.

Concrete can be made into virtually any shape, including the one-piece drop-front sink shown here. Special molds are used to create the decorative designs. Concrete sinks can be ordered in many colors and finishes, and each piece usually has unique distinguishing patterns and textures. Concrete sinks must be sealed periodically with a concrete sealer; wipe up spills immediately to prevent stains.

Stainless steel sinks are especially at home with contemporary surroundings. This undermount type attaches under the countertop and makes cleanup a snap. Stainless steel sinks come in several gauges (the lower the gauge, the thicker the steel), but thickness is less important than sound-deadening material — look for sound-absorbing pads attached to the outside of the sink.

Looking for a signature showpiece for your kitchen but don’t want to spend a ton? Vessel-type sinks carved from a single block of stone have beautiful natural swirls and patterns, and are great focal points. You’ll find them in granite, soapstone, travertine, and onyx. The one shown here is marble. For full viewing (and ease of use), set your vessel sink on a lowered portion of countertop.

Big, deep soapstone sinks that harken to the days of Frank Lloyd Wright are making a comeback. Nearly impervious to stains and heat, soapstone requires only an occasional swipe of mineral oil to retain its beauty. It’s so dense that it won’t harbor bacteria, either, making it easy to clean. Save money and buy a used one where salvaged building materials are sold.
