There are a thousand and one brands when it comes to kitchen sinks, but what really matters is the material. The material will determine what your sink can do, how it will accentuate your kitchen, and when you will need a replacement. Here is our review of the four major materials we see in Dallas, Frisco, and Allen kitchen remodels:
Stainless steel is what more people buy than any other type when remodeling their kitchen. It is resilient and affordable. The steel’s durability rating is denoted by gauge. The lower the gauge, the thicker the steel. An average home sink will be 21-gauge and a good quality will be a 18-gauge.
Enamel-on-cast-iron requires think counters, but is extremely popular. The sink is more aesthetically pleasing than stainless steel and matches in durability. The enamel can chip with heavy usage, but the core is as durable as stainless steel.
Solid surface sinks are rimless and is best for those who care about easy clean-up. The sink is seamlessly fused with the counter and requires a professional installation. While expensive, they add to the beauty of your kitchen.
Composite sinks are becoming increasingly popular. You can find them made of quartz, acrylic, and granite. This material is highly resistant and comes in a variety of colors. The price varies according to material, but tends to be on the expensive side.
