Is there any item in your kitchen that you use more than the kitchen sink? It’s where you wash your dishes, clean off your food, wash your hands, fill up your pots, and many, many, many other things. It’s the centre of your work space and the one item that you know you’ll use, no matter what you’re doing.
This is why choosing the right kitchen sink is so important. Most people spend a lot of time deciding on all the other kitchen fixtures but you really need to think about what sink will work best with your lifestyle and how you like to work.
The first thing to consider is the number of basins in your sink. Do you like working in a simple, one basin sink or do you need to have your sink separated into two sections so you can do different tasks? By understanding how you like to use your sink, it will make it easier for you to decide what kind of sink you prefer to use.
The second thing to think about is the shape of the sink. This is more of a design choice than a usage one. Take a look at the size and style of your kitchen and think about what sink will fit best with your decor and style. Don’t try to put a gigantic sink into a tiny, galley-style kitchen.
Finally, think about the sink placement. Some people complain that if their sink is too deep, and they’re constantly leaning down to reach the bottom, their backs start to hurt. Make sure that your sink is in the perfect position for you.
Whether you’re in a beautiful Langley home or a tiny Vancouver apartment, having the right sink can make your time in the kitchen more enjoyable. Think about that choice before you buy a new kitchen sink.
