It’s often said that the kitchen is the heart of the house. And at the heart of the kitchen? Well, we would argue for the sink. It’s your water source, vital for cooking… and doing the dishes after. And it’s a vital element of your bathroom design, too.
So when you install a new kitchen, or plan a bathroom renovation, choosing the right sink is essential. Let’s take a look at all the factors you should consider.
Kitchen or bathroom?
First things first: which room are you designing for? Think carefully about your priorities for the kitchen and bathroom. Chances are, your design choices will be different for each space.
In the kitchen, you’ll want plenty of space for dishes. Meanwhile, in the bathroom, you might choose a more dainty design. And don’t forget about storage space! Many people tend to keep products around the bathroom sink, while the kitchen has storage space elsewhere.
Single or double?
Next, decide whether you want a single or double basin. Double-basin sinks are especially useful for the kitchen, where you often find yourself multi-tasking. They are also important if you plan to install a garbage disposal unit.
Find your shape
Now we’ve handled the practical questions, it’s time to let your creative side out. Start with the sink shape. You really can choose anything – from the clear-cut square to the elegant curves of a circular sink. You can have straight or sloping sides, deep or shallow designs, or asymmetric shapes.
Make sure that the shape harmonizes with your overall design. For example, if you choose a minimalist design full of geometric patterns, a circular sink might look out of place.
Choose the perfect material
Finally, we come to the most important choice of all. Stainless steel, aluminum, marble, porcelain, glass… Be sure to choose a material that is durable and easy to clean. But beyond those requirements, the sky’s the limit!
