The Kitchen Master

Here at The Kitchen Master, we believe that kitchen remodeling should reflect the way your family lives. Your new kitchen should also make day-to-day tasks easier and more enjoyable. As you know, the kitchen is one of the most used rooms in your home, so it’s important to create a beautiful and functional space that you and your family enjoy coming home to. Would you like to see what sink upgrades our clients are requesting? Check out these exciting features below.

Apron Front Sinks

Also referred to as farmhouse sinks, apron front sinks can be the finishing touch to a quaint and charming kitchen. The basin sits beneath counter level, with the front ends extending slightly from the cabinetry. This lowered design allows you to get closer to the sink, so it actually makes it easier to clean and work in the kitchen. You may think that apron-front sinks can look out of place in a modern kitchen, but this is not the case. Instead, they combine aesthetics and functionality while adding just the right element of country charm to your space. Try a classic material like copper, porcelain or stainless steel. These beautiful sinks can also be carved out of solid blocks of granite.

A contemporary kitchen with a streamlined design.

Integrated Sinks

Did you ever wish your kitchen sink had a more streamlined design? Integrated sinks are popular because they can provide a sleek, modern option for a contemporary kitchen as well as traditional rooms. Made from the same solid surface material as your countertop, an integrated sink creates a continuous look throughout your countertop space.

DuPont Corian has been the leader in the design of these great sinks. Their seamless design means less clean up for you. Rust, dirt and mold have no crevices in which to hide. You can even use mild abrasive cleaners to get out tough stains. This is a wonderful option for homeowners looking to replace both sinks and countertops. If you’re looking for a smooth, unified look for your kitchen, an integrated sink may be for you. Consult with The Kitchen Master about custom kitchen countertops, specially made for you.

Prep Sinks

This one just might make the neighbors jealous. If one sink is good, two is great! Prep sinks are increasing in popularity, due to their flexibility and convenience. If you love to cook, you’ll appreciate resting dirty dishes in your main sink, while leaving washed fruits and vegetables in the prep sink, conveniently near the stove and ready to prepare. Prep sinks are a more sanitary option and can reduce the risk of kitchen cross-contamination that can lead to food borne illness. Prep sinks also work great for wet bar areas, workshops and crafting areas. If you want to get creative, they definitely allow for interesting shapes and sizes, like a crescent or oval. We’d love to hear your ideas and discuss some of our own, so reach out to our team of award winning kitchen designers any time.

Single Basin Sink

A gorgeous, on-trend kitchen sink really is the centerpiece of a well-designed kitchen. But it is also the center of utility for cooks. From prep to cleaning up, everything happens at the sink. A single basin sink can also be the same size as a two-basin sink, with the center partition removed. This allows for more room to clean and prepare your favorite dishes.

It’s a good idea to allow for ample counter space on both sides, so you can leave dishes to dry while shucking corn, snapping beans, cleaning fish or washing fruit for a spectacular meal. If you’re looking to swap out the standard two-basin sink for something more functional, give us a call to discuss your options.
