Whether you are remodeling your entire kitchen or looking for a simple replacement for a worn-out model, any sink you choose should be well-made and durable at a minimum.

Editor's Notes

June 26, 2020:

More than just a place to prepare dinner, nowadays the kitchen tends to be the epicenter of modern family life. With the popularity of dishwashers, so too, kitchen sinks are more than just a place to wash up. Of late, single bowl options are regaining popularity over double bowl designs, primarily because they are roomier for washing large pots and pans, yet take up less valuable surface space. The choices seem limitless when it comes to material choice, bowl size, mounting options, and faucet placement. Choosing the most suitable one for your kitchen will depend on several factors, including how much space you have, how many people use your kitchen at the same time, how often you entertain, and how you tend to clean up.

Nothing beats a large, well-appointed kitchen, with plenty of space for all your gadgets, and enough room for more than one person to work comfortably. As such, a generously sized sink, such as the Torva Farmhouse and the Alwen farmhouse Black will stand out as the centerpiece whilst being durable enough for daily use. The Enbol PA3321 and the Bocchi Contempo are also large options made from porcelain and fireclay respectively. The Kraus Kore Workstation features a built-in ledge that holds a range of accessories, essentially freeing up space and providing a convenient place to prep food, making it a good choice for large and small kitchens alike.

If, however, you are trying to make the most of limited space in a compact kitchen, then a smaller sink, such as the Torva 17 Inch or the Monarch Abode 17092 are both modern styled options that use up minimal countertop space, the latter being made from hand-hammered copper. The Ruvati Dual-Mount and the Swanstone Solid Surface are both mid-sized options that stand out due to their innovative, composite resin construction. This ultra-modern material is notable for its durable, scratch-resistant, and heat-resistant properties.
