Kitchen Sinks Trends

Kitchen Sinks Trends

There is so much to think about and plan when remodeling a kitchen. It can be overwhelming at times. You want your kitchen to be beautiful, functional, enjoyable and… perfect. In the process of remodeling your kitchen, you’ll need to choose a countertop (quartz, marble or granite), your kitchen cabinets,  flooring, wall colors…Pro-Tops can provide you all the guidance you need to make your kitchen remodel a complete success.

In this article, we’d like to bring your attention to kitchen sinks. Kitchen sinks have come a very long way. They are now available in variety of sizes, shapes and materials. Below are some of the most noteworthy trends for kitchen sinks for 2018.

Single bassin sinks

More and more homeowners are opting for single bassin sinks rather than double sinks. Large single bassin sinks come in a variety of sizes making them easier to fit most countertop layouts. Single bassin sinks make it easier to wash large pots and pans. They are also easier to maintain . Because single bassin sinks are usually deeper than their counterparts, they produce less water backsplash onto countertops when using the faucet.

Quartz sinks

Quartz sinks are in and there are good reasons why it is so. They are elegant, highly durable, scratch resistant, easy to clean and maintain, non-porous, bacteria and odor resistant and they don’t fade. They look pretty slick when paired with quartz countertops.  

 

Apron sinks

The old time classic apron sink is a very popular choice among homeowners. Apron sinks have a timeless look and are functional. They are often referred to as a farmhouse sink, and “farmhouse” style is in thanks to some popular home remodeling TV shows. 

Due to their popularity, apron sinks now come in single and double bassin options. Most apron sinks are under-mounted. If you are looking to make a statement, apron sinks come in a variety of materials including porcelain, stainless steel, cast iron and copper.
