Kitchen sinks are an integral unit within your kitchen.

Top Mount Kitchen Sinks

When shopping for your new kitchen sink, you’ll find two types under-mount and top-mount. Top mount sinks are an efficient option to install. They have a lip around the basin that overlaps with the surrounding countertop. You can find these sinks in any material, such as granite, fireclay, stainless steel, and cast iron.

Under Mount Kitchen Sinks

The under-mount sinks offer homeowners something different look with a basin underneath the kitchen counter rim. It gives the kitchen counter a smooth, sleek design and is practical in that you can sweep materials or liquids straight into the basin without them running into the lip.

Corner Kitchen Sinks

As the name implies, this sink style sits in the corner but may likely have two sink basins. One is on each corner side with the faucet in the middle. This placement allows for more length for your counter space but can be more expensive than other options.

Drainboard Attached To Your Sink

You can also install a kitchen sink with a drainboard attached to it. Every kitchen needs a drainboard of some kind, and in a modern kitchen, having one included in the sink design is perfectly practical. Sinks with drainboards come in different materials such as stainless steel, fireclay, porcelain, cast iron, etc.

Your Sink On A Island

If your kitchen is spacious enough to include a kitchen island, you could find it practical to install a sink there. Like any sink, it could be a top mount, under-mount, or a single or double basin. Kitchen island sinks have also become more prevalent in modern homes.
