Stainless steel sinks are also very popular, particularly with professional cooks, though copper sinks - notably the farmhouse style - are gaining in popularity, at least in part due to the appealing warmth of the natural patina copper develops as it ages. Kitchen sinks made of artisan materials, though not yet as well-known as copper, stainless and stone, are all on the upswing. Examples are fireclay kitchen sinks, which are often made in the farm style, and cast concrete sinks. Cast concrete in particular allows the artisan to create an amazing array of styles: single well, double well, trough, combined sink and draining board units, countertops with integrated sinks and the farm style, along with unusual shapes. This newer material brings one more element into the design mix - the green kitchen sink. By combining recycled materials with the concrete, artisans can lessen both the environmental impact and the weight of the finished sink.
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.
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.
