What materials suits your style? Once you've nailed down your configuration, next up will be deciding on the material you'd like for your kitchen sink. Stone sinks, especially granite, are extremely popular and the ultimate in long-lasting luxury. Hand carved by a stone artisan from a single block of granite, marble, limestone, travertine or onyx, a stone kitchen sink is a treasure you'll cherish each time you use it.
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.
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.
