Finding the Right Kitchen Sink for Your Space

Written by Planet Granite, Inc. on . Posted in Interior Design

Most people give little thought to household sinks until they’ve got one that isn’t quite right. Kitchen remodeling projects involve a significant amount of decisions, and it can be tempting to make hasty decisions. If you’re only doing a partial remodel, you’ll probably need to stick with the same size sink that is being replaced so it will fit into the same space as the previous one. However, if you’re going for a full renovation, you’ll be able to pick and choose the best size and shape of sink from a large variety of options.

Single or Double?

Whether you opt for a single or a double sink depends on how you will primarily use the fixture. If you’re going to be hand washing the majority of your dishes, for instance, you’ll probably want to choose a double kitchen sink. However, if you are going to be using a dishwashing machine, a large single sink might be a better choice. Also, if you or no one in your household cooks very often, you can easily get away with a smaller sink than if your kitchen were being used on an everyday basis. The kind of food being prepared should also be taken into account — large meals prepared using large pans require large sinks.

Space Considerations 

As mentioned above, kitchen size plays a major role in the size and even the shape of the fixtures. If you have shallow kitchen countertops in Colorado Springs, for instance, you may be better off with a narrow sink that has enough length to provide plenty of room. If your overall space is small, consider getting a corner sink to make use of every available inch.
