Your kitchen may be at the heart of your home, but it is your kitchen sink that handles most of the daily chores. A good quality designer kitchen sink should last you a minimum of 15 years or more.
With so many to choose from in various sizes, materials and mounting styles, buying a kitchen sink can be a trivial task. Here at Tap Warehouse we are one of the best kitchen sink suppliers, so we have put together a useful buyers guide to help you choose the best sink for your kitchen (because we’re nice like that).
Sink Size Vs. Kitchen Size?
Before you purchase your new kitchen sink, it is vital that you consider the size of your kitchen and where exactly you want to place it.
For larger kitchens, the best kitchen sink for you would be a double or even a triple bowl sink, as the added convenience will allow you to stack the dishes in one bowl while you rinse off vegetables in the other - this is becoming increasingly popular.

Sometimes less is more if you have limited space in your kitchen. Single square or round kitchen sinks, with or without drainers, may be the best kitchen sink for you as they are great space savers and look just as delightful as double bowl sinks. Or, if you feel like you want the second bowl but don’t really have enough room, a stylish sink with a 1.5 bowl would be perfect.
