Your Sink Takes Center Stage: Choosing The Right One For You

ProSource | 9/4/2015 | Product Information

Once upon a time, a sink was just that bowl or trough thing on your kitchen or bath counter. It was a reservoir for running water and dirty dishes. The ubiquitous sink wasn’t something most people thought about much. How things have changed.

Today the sink has become an integral design element. Homeowners can choose from a wide variety of sizes, styles and colors. They can have an under-mounted, apron front, or above-counter version. The sink is no longer an afterthought. It is as important as the glorified countertop or cabinet.

Do you have your heart set on a vessel sink? It may be perfect for you. Then again, another sink style may be the best fit. Visit with your ProSource Showroom team to learn what will work best for you. They can show you firsthand what your options are and how they could work in your space.

Knowing What You Need Versus What You Want

Variety is the spice of life and your sink options reflect it. Which sink to choose depends upon your priorities, such as:

  • Location: kitchen, bathroom, or another room
  • Usage: heavy, light, single or multiple users
  • Style preference: apron front, under-mount, vessel, etc.
  • Size: relative to counter and under sink space available
  • Faucet location: on-sink placement or wall mounted

The name of the game in kitchen sinks is options. There are many:

  • Type: large and single sink, 2 basins of the same size, 2 basins of different sizes, 3 basins, sink systems (think galley compartments)
  • Dimensions: length, width and depth
  • Finishes: stainless, porcelain, copper, solid surface, etc.
  • Accessories: built-in drain board, lowered divider, sink covers and more
  • Maintenance requirements: match sink type with durability needs
