Sinks and Faucets. Thursday , February 01st , 2018 - 08:59:22 AM
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.
Some sinks are available with "tile-in" edges. Designed to mount flush with a tiled surface, they offer a built-in, grouted sink edge. Self-rimming, drop-in sinks work well with any countertop material but have a raised lip that may, depending on the sink material you choose, interfere with cleaning.
But for aesthetics? "The trend is to customize" Judd says. Special finishes, such as brushed nickel and oil-rubbed bronze, outsell chrome by a wide margin — especially for remodels and do-it-yourself projects, where people typically spend between $100 and $300 on faucets.
