Useful Tips to Help You Choose the Best Kitchen Sink

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.

Larger Kitchens

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. 


Smaller Kitchens

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.


Undermount Kitchen Sinks

Undermount kitchen sinks are ideal for all kinds of granite kitchen countertops. Some of the best undermount kitchen sinks offer a more sleek and seamless appearance as they are mounted under the kitchen counter top. They are easy to install and easier to clean due to the absence of any rim, as would be found in top mounted sinks.


Drop In Kitchen Sinks

A unique sink, perfect for the best of traditional kitchens

Top mounted kitchen sinks, also known as drop in sinks are the easiest to install and can work out cost effective for those on a budget. They are one of the best kitchen sinks which are generally used in utility areas such as laundry rooms but also make great features in kitchens.
