The second most utilized material is a solid surface kitchen sink which can quickly be either under-mounted or surface-mounted and is also available in a wider range of options than stainless steel for instance. Solid surface materials have grown in popularity in the last few years and are now available in a wide range of color to help you match your kitchen counter tops. While solid surface sinks are not totally scratch-proof they can resist most scratches and when you do get one it is typically able to be buffed out. Additional benefits include being resistant to both heat and stains.
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.
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.
