Sinks and Faucets. Thursday , February 01st , 2018 - 09:03:50 AM
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.
Brass, copper, chrome, nickel, gold-plated, oil-rubbed metals, matte or shiny finish, a smooth satin sheen and even faucets with texture are now available to consumers in all price ranges. In terms of sheer sales volume, says Judd Lord, director of industrial design for Delta Faucet Co., chrome is still the leader.
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.
