Everything You Need To Know About A Kitchen Sink Before You Buy One
Kitchen sinks are ubiquitous with many kitchens. So, if you are building a new home or renovating your kitchen, there are good chances that you will need to choose a new kitchen sink. Some people believe that all you need to do is choose the material, size and colour and you are basically set but that it not all there is to it. At Renovation D we have a wide selection of kitchen sinks in our catalogue. To help you get this crucial step right, here are some things that you should consider when choosing a kitchen sink.
1. Consider the ergonomics
When you are doing the dishes, you need to reach the water stream very easily. If the stream is to far, this results in you hunching over or leaning to get to it. This is not ideal as you will end up getting tired quicker and you may get back problems from always leaning when doing the dishes. You need to choose a kitchen sink that has a narrow bowl so that the faucet is closer to the person washing. Buy a long reach faucet and mount it next to the faucet not behind it.
2. Install it strategically
Sinks come in a many shapes and sizes. This allows you to choose from a very wide variety. As you are choosing you need to consider the space next to the sink. Do not install the sink right next to the cooktop as dirty water and food may get into your food. The sink must not be next to the fridge or wall as it makes for inconvenient washing up. If you want to have a food shredder, look for a space that allows for the shredder to fit under the sink.
3. Choose the right sink material
Granite sinks have so many advantages. They look sleek and stylish and last for a very long time as well. You must consider getting a granite sink with ready made holes so that installation is easy and the whole process is painless. At Renovation D we have many granite sinks of all shapes and sizes for you to choose from. If granite is not up your alley, there are stone and composite sinks available as well. These are good for both the undermount and drop in sinks and allow you to have lots of storage space either below or above the kitchen sink.
With many options available you need to consider your needs before choosing a particular kitchen sink. If you need more help, don’t hesitate to consult the professionals for expert advice.
