Prep/Entertainment/Bar Sinks: These are small sinks, which were originally designed to wash fruits and vegetables. However, over time, their utility has extended to a plethora of applications. They can fit in any space in the kitchen or in the bar unit or an entertainment section of the house. Besides these, we also have: Self-rimming/Top Mount Sinks: These sit in the countertop surface, with their rim forming a very close seal with the countertop surface. Bottom Mount/Under Mount Sinks: The edge of the countertop is exposed at the hole that is made for the sink, as the sink is installed below the surface of the countertop. Vessel Sinks: There is decoration on all sides of this sink, and it sits on top of the mounting surface. They are freestanding, and their popularity is increasing because of the artistic opportunity they provide.
The range of kitchen sink materials on the market today are far more varied and diverse then they where even just a few years ago and much, much greater then 15-20 years ago when your kitchen was originally built. You need to make sure that you are educating yourself with all of the facts prior to picking out your kitchen sink to make sure that you are picking the one that is right for your kitchen, budget, and family. The kitchen sink is probably the most used item in the kitchen so a bad choice could be something you regret for years to come.
Today, the design and usage of kitchen sinks has evolved immensely. Manufacturers have changed the shape, while the ingenious thought of interior decorators have improved it's design. The Kohler company, for example, offers some of the best sinks on the market. The Kohler Fete for example, is an oval shaped, and very shallow, island sink. Designers were thinking of ways to better the look of kitchen islands, while adding usage. While the small and stylish one is not able to handle washing the dishes, it does serve as a convenience for projects involving the cutting board. For salad preparation, or removing the fat from that beef, the Fete provides a big convenience to cleaning your food. Instead of traveling all the way to the main sink and risking an accident, the conventional Fete island one takes care of those small and quick jobs when cooking and prepping food. Other top brands that Kohler carries are Cursive, 8 Degree and Evenweave.
