Kitchen and Bathroom Sinks – Ideas and Costs
There are many options for adding a new sink to your bathroom, kitchen, garage or outdoor patio area. Adding or updating a sink can quickly change the appearance of the room and immediately make it look more fresh and clean. What type you choose depends on not only the room where it is to be installed, its functions and features, but it is also how it matches to your personal style.
When completing a kitchen remodel, there are several items to keep in mind when choosing your sink including how much you cook, how it matches the countertops and backsplash, and how easy it is to use and to keep clean. When replacing a sink in your bathroom it depends on whether you are looking strictly for utility or if you would like a showpiece – both of which serve specific purposes.
Naturally, the type of material you choose for your new sink is a personal choice depending on your style, but over 70% of all sinks installed are stainless steel. Stainless steel continues to be one of the most affordable and versatile finishes on the market. Other good options inlcude porcelain and cast iron sinks, but whilst cast iron sinks resist staining and are easy to clean they are fairly heavy and more difficult to install.
