The kitchen sink for years has had a specified purpose with the most simplest and generic design. Typically it is made from porcelain (a non-porous ceramic glaze) for home, and are metal based for industries like the restaurant business. It has the structure of a rectangular receptacle sectioned into two square and rounded edged basins, to allow for things like 'dish-duty' and hygiene (washing hair). Parents often use the kitchen sink when it is bath time for their infant. It provides for better efficiency at such a task due to it's limited space. A traditional bathtub may prove too dangerous for infants and toddlers.
Stainless steel kitchen sinks is the most popular material for kitchen sinks today. Along with being easy to clean and install it come in a very wide range of prices. On the downside is that it can scratch, dent, and scold easily if not taken care of properly. Also it intensifies the sound of running water and the garbage disposal because it is not as good at deadening sound as some other materials are. If stainless steel is what you are going for make sure you check the gauge of the material. The lower the gauge of metal the thicker it is which will help minimize the downsides of stainless steel. One other option to look for in your next stainless steel kitchen sink that can help is an undercoating that further muffles sound.
These two are going to be the largest majority of kitchen sinks out there today but there are some other options that you should know about to ensure that you make an informed choice. Porcelain is another popular material commonly used on kitchen sinks in older homes. Porcelain kitchen sinks are not as durable or as stain resistant as some other materials. Acrylic is a stain resistant material that can be purchased with anti-bacterial coatings built into them which can be helpful if you have kids or a lot of traffic threw your kitchen. A big negative to acrylic kitchen sinks is they are not as heat resistant as some of the other materials. One of the more cost effective options is the enamel kitchen sinks. Less durable than other options, enamel comes in a variety of colors an also needs careful maintenance. Soapstone is a recent development in kitchen sink material that is easy to look after and available in a range of colors. Those who like the antique look for their kitchens also often use copper and brass.
