Sinks and Faucets. Thursday , February 01st , 2018 - 09:04:11 AM
The spool is the most important part of the faucets, and it determines the quality and life of the faucets to a large extent. Spool faucets can be divided into ceramic spool, ball spool, stainless steel spool, and rubber spool, and until now ceramic spool is the best with its good sealing performance, and physical stability. Usually faucets with ceramic spool can be used about 5 to ten years.
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.
Esthetics. The most obvious reason for deciding on a granite sink is that it is usually recessed into the countertop, blending beautifully with a granite counter. It also retains its polished finish, he points out. "A granite sink and counters are a perfect complement to the warm, inviting, yet elegant look we strive for in our kitchens," he says.
