Sinks and Faucets. Tuesday , February 06th , 2018 - 09:08:30 AM
Flexibility of size. "You can make your granite kitchen sink any size you want; you’re not limited by what the manufacturers have to offer. Most of our ‘trough’ sinks are 6 feet long. We usually limit the depth to 9 inches because anything deeper is not ergonomically comfortable," De Giulio says. Often his company installs granite sinks with multiple levels inside, such as a 4-inch or 6-inch-deep section.
Off-center faucets: Sinks with off-center faucet positions offer larger interior basin space. Consider who will be using the faucet. If choosing one with an integral pullout spray head, users should all be right- or left-handed, as added stress on the hose can lead to faucet problems when pulling out and back toward the faucet.
Kitchen sinks are typically made from stainless steel, enamel-coated cast iron, solid surfaces and composites. For clients who choose solid surface counters like granite or engineered stone, Isley recommends a stainless steel sink because of its undermount capability. Also if homeowners tend to be hard on sinks (Isley asks clients if they‘re prone to throwing things into their sink), stainless is often the best choice. When shopping for a sink, keep in mind that lower-gauge stainless steel makes for a better quality sink. Some people find stainless steel sinks noisy, but that‘s a problem that can be addressed by choosing a design featuring sound-absorption technology.
