The kitchen sink is the center of all kitchen activity and is a major element in the kitchen. Choosing the right kitchen sink is important as it can affect your everyday routine. As an integral aspect in your kitchen, it must be practical, appealing and suit your lifestyle. Take some inspiration from these kitchen sink designs for your next kitchen renovation.

Farmhouse Sinks
Farmhouse sinks, also known as apron sinks, have a deep basin design dropping down to the cabinetry instead of stopping at the bench top. Their classic style can be seen as a focal point in the kitchen and are ideal for an avid cook as they accommodate to large stock pots and oversized pans. Farmhouse sinks can be installed in a range of materials with cast iron being the most popular.

Undermount Sinks
Bringing a sophisticated and streamlined look to your kitchen, undermount sinks are installed underneath the bench top with no rim. Therefore liquids and spills can be wiped straight into the sink without catching on the edge making it easy to clean up. No visible edges mean a smooth design but they are more expensive to install than regular sinks.

Divided Sinks
Divided sinks are ideal for large families as they have two basins, doubling the space for kitchen clean up. Divided sinks are great for multitasking and area available in a wide range of materials. Ensure each basin size still allows you to wash up large pots and pans.

Drop in Sinks
Drop in sinks are the most common and easiest sink to install as they can be used with almost any bench top material. They have rounded edges which sit above the bench top and are simply mounted into the bench top making them the least expensive option.

Integral Sinks
An integral sink means the sink and bench top are made from the same material. Stainless steel, composite and stone are popular materials for integral sinks which are very easy to clean as there are no visible seams or joints.

Stainless Steel Sinks
Stainless steel is the most popular kitchen sink material because of its strength, durability and ease of cleaning. Stainless steel sinks are affordable, will not rust and generally fit the design of any kitchen style.

With many factors to take into consideration, choosing the right kitchen sink comes down to your personal requirements and taste. For guidance on choosing the right design that best suits your needs, seek the advice of the professionals in kitchen design.
