If you’re like most people, you, your family and friends spend a great deal of time in the kitchen. The kitchen is where we cook delicious meals, enjoy conversations around the table (or kitchen counter), and build memories.
While everyone may come together in the kitchen, it’s the kitchen sink that takes the brunt of the daily chores. That’s because we use the sink to wash produce, prepare meals, and clean up after them.
Although the highest quality sinks can last 15 years or longer, every kitchen sink gets worn out and eventually needs to be replaced.
A finish becomes dull or chips, and mysterious leaks begin to appear around the rim of the drain. If you’re planning on jazzing up your kitchen or doing a full-blown kitchen remodel, it makes sense to replace the old kitchen sink and faucet.
Kitchen sinks come in a variety of styles and materials. From traditional porcelain on cast iron to stainless steel sinks and newer varieties. According to Consumer Reports, however, more people buy stainless steel kitchen skinks than any other type.
Colors and styles aside, we found that function rivals form since you’ll be doing everything from washing your hands to scrubbing iron pans – so your sink must be able to take a beating.
Examples of popular kitchen sinks:
- Double bowl
If you’re looking to update your kitchen with some affordable upgrades, a new sink can be a low-cost way to dramatically improve the aesthetics of your kitchen. Or, if you’re overhauling your kitchen, you can choose a sink that matches your new décor beautifully.
Replacing the Sink and Faucet Together
It’s easier to replace the faucet and the sink together because we can mount the faucet in the sink or counter before the sink is put in place. The good news is that most kitchen faucets come with a lifetime warranty that will cover any leaks or stains.
