Choosing a sink

What to pay attention to when buying a sink?

Choose a material that suits your preferences and the style of your kitchen. Consider how much space you can allocate for the sink and choose a size accordingly. Also, the shape of the sink can affect its functionality. Choose a model that is easy to clean and resistant to scratches, stains and chemicals. Pay attention to the installation. You can choose from under-counter, drop-in or overlay sinks. Some of them have additional features, such as built-in dish racks, drainage systems, or special coatings to prevent stains. Consider whether you will need such amenities. Also check what kind of warranty the manufacturer offers.

Where to buy a sink?

A well-made sink will be durable and easy to maintain. So pay attention to reputable brands that offer high quality products. One such company is KERNAU. It's also worth checking out Ferro's offerings. The full list of manufacturers we recommend can be found in the search engine of the Products for Home portal under the keyword "sink".

    Single or double-bowl sink?

    A single-bowl sink consists of one, but large chamber. This makes it easier to wash large pots, pans and other dishes. If you have big family and cook a lot of food, such a sink may be more practical. A single-bowl sink is also considered modern and minimalist. However, you must remember that such a sink can be problematic, if you want to wash dishes and prepare food at the same time.

    A double-bowl sink has a more traditional look. It has two compartments that allow you to wash dishes and prepare food at the same time. However, they are smaller than a single-bowl sink, which can make washing large dishes difficult.

    Material

    The material from which a sink is made affects, among other things, its appearance, durability and ease of cleaning. Here are some popular materials used to make sinks:

    Stainless steel

    This material is durable and corrosion-resistant, as well as easy to clean. Sinks made of stainless steel look modern and fit into many different arrangements. In addition, they are distinguished by their resistance to high temperatures. However, it is worth remembering that a steel sink is prone to scratches and can be quite noisy during use.

    Granite

    Sinks made of granite are available in a variety of colors. They are also resistant to stains and scratches. Additionally, they are quiet in use. However, granite sinks are slightly more expensive than those made of other materials and require special care.

    Quartz conglomerate

    Sinks made of this material are durable and resistant to scratches and stains. They are easy to keep clean, and the wide range of colors makes it easy for everyone to find something for themselves. Unfortunately, however, such sinks are relatively expensive.

    Ceramic

    Ceramic products are resistant to stains and distinguished by their aesthetic appearance. In addition, they are available in many colors. However, they can be easily damaged or cracked.

    Composite

    This material combines the characteristics of different materials, for example, granite and resin. It's durable and stain-resistant. Composite sinks are available in a variety of styles. However, they can be more expensive than other types of sinks.

    Which sink is easiest to keep clean?

    There is no one simple answer to this question. It all depends on your preferences and what method of care is easiest for you. You can wash all sinks with water and mild detergent. On the other hand, depend on the material from which the sink was made of, you should avoid some detergents. In the case of stainless steel sinks, these are detergents containing chlorine. Granite does not like acids. On the other hand, both acids and alcohol can damage quartz conglomerate. Composite sinks shouldn't have contact with corrosive substances.
