Sinks & Faucets St. Louis, MO
During the process of designing a kitchen, the homeowner will have to consider sink selection. Materials can be stainless steel, granite composite, porcelain, cast iron or copper. Vessel sinks, a relative newcomer to the sink industry, can be glass, onyx, and more. Under mount sinks are generally more popular options.
Stainless steel sinks are continuously evolving, after a rough start in utility rooms and garage shops. The gauge determines the thickness: the higher the measure, the thinner the steel. Stainless steel sinks come in gauges as low as 16 gauge, which is the thickest option you can buy.
Silgranite is a granite composite which is poured and cast. It has the benefit of being the most durable sink on the market, Heat, scratch, and stain resistant, it comes in dozens of styles and several colors. It is easy to keep clean without harsh or abrasive cleaners.
Porcelain sinks for kitchens come in a host of colors. The farm sink also called the apron front sink, is often a porcelain sink. A farm sink may be top mounted or under-mounted. It can also be stainless steel, marble, enameled cast iron, copper, and more. They’re usually wider and deeper than a traditional sink.
Just as a cautionary note: if you aren’t in the process of a remodel, or don’t already have a farm sink in place, a farm sink probably isn’t going to work without some rather substantial renovation to the counter and cabinetry.
Under mount sinks are a popular option in all materials. They are mounted from below so the sink is beneath the countertop, rather than above it. An under mount sink has the added benefit of the countertop line view being unbroken by the top of the sink.
Faucet installation is part of the process in selecting your new sink, as the sink and faucet must have corresponding holes for them to work in tandem. If the sink has extra holes, a deck plate can be used to cover them. However, a sink which lacks holes won’t work. Faucets can have options such as touchless, pull-out spray wall mounted, swing arm, and more.
