When it comes to upgrading the kitchen sink, a few different options exist that can accommodate your lifestyle or complement the room’s décor. In most cases, you should consider the kitchen’s décor and size before selecting your new sink style.

Consider the Size of Your Kitchen When Choosing a Large, Small, or Multi-Basin Sink

While you may prefer a double sink to a single one, the size of your kitchen is going to play into your decision-making process. A small sink is not going to look right in a large kitchen, and a large or multi-basin sink is going to overpower a small one. Even if your kitchen is supersized, you should avoid installing a second sink unless you are actually going to need it.

Trendy Undermount Kitchen Sinks

Gaining in popularity, the undermount style of sink maintains the clean lines of your countertop and keeps the focus clearly on its appearance. Undermount sinks also enable easy countertop clean up since you can simply sweep crumbs and debris from the countertop into the sink.

Tile-In Sinks

Combining the benefit of the undermount sink that enables easy cleanup of debris and scraps with the attractiveness of having tile installed to the edge of the sink, this style of kitchen sink is gaining popularity. It keeps the focus on the countertop and not on the sink.

Prep/Entertainment Sinks

The perfect second sink for large kitchens, the prep style provides a convenient location for a helper to rinse produce or handle small tasks. It is perfect for people who love to entertain or large families.

Farmhouse Style

Offering a touch of nostalgia, the farmhouse style typically features an apron front with an undermount installation. This style is more expensive to install as it usually requires custom cabinetry. It’s important to realize that under-the-sink storage is greatly reduced when upgrading the kitchen sink to this style. This is a perfect style for large or vintage kitchens.

Drop-In Sinks

The least expensive option when you decide to replace the kitchen sink is the drop-in style. It fits into an opening that has been cut out of the existing countertop. This is the most common choice for tile or laminated countertops.
