Now that summer is essentially over, it’s time for you to start thinking about what you’ll do during the fall. Are you still going to be hosting weekly parties? Then you’ve got to consider your next remodeling project. Whether you want to bring new life into your main kitchen or you want to revamp your outdoor kitchen, here are some ways to find your next kitchen sink.
Choose the Bowls You Want
One of the reasons to remodel your kitchen is to make it more efficient. That said, the first decision you’ll have to make has to do with how many bowls you want for your new kitchen sink. Having one bowl in the sink means it is much larger, but you might prefer having two smaller ones instead. What’s the difference? When you have two bowls, you can designate one bowl for dirty dishes that need to be hand-washed.
However, the tradeoff is that you won’t be able to fit larger items such as pots, pans, and baking dishes, which you might be using a lot more as you create soups, stews, and desserts for autumn-themed get-togethers. Having a dishwasher in your kitchen will make doing the dishes easier and much less time-consuming – but only if you rinse and put cups, bowls, plates, and cutlery into the dishwasher itself instead of letting them linger in the sink.
Think About Depth
While deep sinks tend to be in laundry rooms, it’s not often you’ll find one in a kitchen. However deep kitchen sinks can prove to be a boon for your renovation. The deeper a sink is, the more dishes you can fit in it to wash, and it’ll make it easier to clean the large items we named above, especially if the kitchen faucet is moveable. A deeper kitchen sink also prevents water from splashing all over your counter.
Consider Adding Bar Sinks
If you have an island in your kitchen, then you could also think about adding a bar sink. Bar sinks are used primarily for preparing food and drink. However, you’d need plenty of extra counter space to get the most out of it.
Choose the Mounting
The last factor you’ll need to address is how the new sink will be mounted. A self-rimmed sink drops onto the kitchen counter. Clips and screws also hold the sink in place. But an under-mounted sink is where the counter meets the sink.
