Sinks and Faucets. Thursday , February 01st , 2018 - 09:00:26 AM
You might have to go back in time to find a greater use of stone than in today‘s new and remodeled homes. Already a classic countertop, backsplash and flooring mainstay, stone is now morphing into the most utilitarian tool in the kitchen — the sink. The same characteristics of strength and beauty that make stone a best-selling countertop material also make it a natural for sinks.
Usually, stone kitchen sinks are carved out of one solid piece, either farmhouse style or small round prep sinks. The front of a farmhouse sink can be left in its rough, natural state or it can be polished and even carved. The other option is a boxy sink fabricated from granite or other slabs — the best choice if you want to match your chosen countertop. Regardless of the design, though, your cabinets will require some extra reinforcement to support a stone sink, says Joe Percoco of Percoco Marble and Tile in Denver, Colo. He strongly recommends that the sink cabinet be reinforced to hold the extra weight, which can total more than 300 pounds. Joe says that one of their block sinks can require "four guys to get it into place." Make sure your cabinets have similar strength.
It could even be time for a large improvement project. When it comes to cooking area renovation, you will certainly find that, as a homeowner, you have an unrestricted number of alternatives. If you prefer to do so, you might renovate every little thing, immediately to the cooking area sink.
