One of the hardest-working plumbing fixtures in your home is the kitchen sink. Why not have one that’s both functional and stylish? With these popular kitchen sink styles to draw from, you’ll have plenty of ideas for your upcoming kitchen remodel.
This tried-and-true design has been the go-to kitchen sink style for generations. The weight of the sink is supported by a lip that extends an inch or two over the countertop surface, making it easy to install. Drop-in sinks may have one or two basins, depending on the design.
The seamless nature and easy-to-clean quality of undermount sinks make them a growing trend in the kitchen renovation industry. This style is installed below the countertop, so food particles and spills are easy to brush into the sink without getting caught on a rim. Undermount sinks can only be installed with solid-surface countertops, including granite, quartz, and marble. As with self-rimming sinks, there may be one or two basins.
Material options are somewhat limited due to weight restrictions. However, unless you have your heart set on a heavy fireclay or cast iron sink, you should be fine. Popular materials used in undermount sinks include porcelain, stainless steel, and soapstone.
