One-and-a-half-bowl sinks offer a good compromise, giving you an extra area that doesn't eat up too much surface space. There's still a lot to be said, though, for large one bowl sinks, especially if you have a dishwasher. A big single sink allows you to soak larger pans and dishes that won't fit in the machine.
Marble sinks gives a shiny and elegant finish to your luxury kitchen. But maintaining this look can be a problem, due to the porosity of the marble. Sealing helps to prevent this to a particular extent. But various juices, soft drinks and house hold cleaning liquids may cause dirty spots on the marble.
Single Bowl Kitchen Sinks: These are ideal for those who prefer a dishwasher in place of washing the vessels by hand. For larger vessels, a deep bowl is preferable. If space is a scarce commodity in your kitchen, this might be the right type of sink for you. Double and Triple Bowl Kitchen Steel Sinks: These are ideal for those who prefer to wash dishes by hand. You can wash in one bowl, and rinse in the other. Some of these sinks come with multiple bowls in different sizes. Apron-Front Kitchen Sinks: These evoke an old-world feel. They are also called farmhouse sinks. They might have a stylish panel in the front. They are available in tiled and under mount models.
Aside from having the ability of installing corner sinks on your counter tops, you can also opt for under mount corner sink. More often than not, under mount corner sinks have drain boards that help drain dishes, cookware, or utensils easily. You can also avoid spills on floor using these drain boards because the water from the dishes run directly to the bowl and not on the counter top. Under mount sinks also have sink rims to allow water to remain within the sink because they are higher than the drain boards.
In terms of mounting options, you can opt for surface, under-mount or set-in sinks. Surface-mounted sinks are dropped into a pre-cut hole in the worktop surface, and offer a good all-round mounting option for many different types of worktop material. For a subtler touch, you might consider an under-mount sink, which is installed below the counter and creates no rim between sink and worktop surface. This makes the area around the sink easier to clean. Finally, set-in sinks are built into the worktop and are made of the same material, which offers a seamless aesthetic that works perfectly with granite.
