Remodeling a kitchen space is not only about giving it a contemporary look and feel but it’s also about upgrading the space’s functionality. This is why choosing and installing the right kitchen fixtures is crucial for homeowners. A sink is, hands down, one of the most important components in a kitchen that enhances its look and practicality. Nowadays, when looking for a kitchen sink you may feel a bit overwhelmed due to the availability of a large variety of sizes, models, and types. So, to help you in selecting the perfect sink for your kitchen, we are going to list down and discuss some of the most popular types of kitchen sinks available in the market.
Most Common Types of Kitchen Sinks in Pakistan
These are the most popular kitchen sinks available in the market. You can choose the material that suits your needs and requirements.
- Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink
- Granite Composite Kitchen Sink
- Ceramic Kitchen Sink
- Glass Kitchen Sink
Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink
Known as one of the most durable materials on earth, stainless steel is widely used for making kitchen sinks. Highly resistant to cracking, corrosion and chipping, stainless steel kitchen sinks are tougher than all the other types of sinks available in the market. When it comes to affordability, installing a stainless steel sink turns out to be a budget-friendly option for you, allowing you to save some money that you can rightfully invest in other things.
Granite Composite Kitchen Sink
Well, if stainless steel doesn’t work for you how about a granite composite sink? Incredibly hard-wearing and sturdy, granite sinks boasts a curated blend acrylic resin and natural stone, which also makes it look fabulous and cost-effective. However, pure granite sinks are rare and usually not an economical option for homeowners. A granite composite sink, which is 80% of granite and 20% of acrylic resin, is available in dozens of sizes, configurations and colours. It is also heat and scratch-resistant and usually has a long life.
Ceramic Kitchen Sink
Ceramic sinks are one of the most popular types of kitchen sinks in Pakistan that are widely available. Another affordable kitchen sink option, ceramic basins come in a variety of designs that are aesthetically diverse and easy to maintain. They are made up of clay and other natural materials used as fillers. Unlike stainless steel sinks, ceramic kitchen sinks are dent-proof, but they can be chipped or cracked. The moisture absorbency of these sinks is extremely low, which enhances their durability. Although these sinks are sensitive to heat but putting a kettle or hot pot on them won’t be a big problem. Ceramic kitchen sinks are available in a variety of hues to match the colour palette of your kitchen cabinets.
Glass Kitchen Sink
Perfectly fitting your contemporary kitchen setup, glass sinks come in a variety of shapes and designs. While these are stylish, they might not be as strong as stainless steel, granite or ceramic kitchen sinks. That said, don’t be deceived by appearances. These sinks can withstand temperatures as high as 100-degree Celsius. Glass sinks available these days are heat and scratch-resistant, so you can chop and boil your ingredients as much as you like.
Which Design Should You Go For? Single Bowl Or Double Bowl?
If you have a small kitchen setup, then a single bowl sink works best for you as it frees up more space where you can get other fixtures installed to increase the functionality of your kitchen. On the other hand, a double bowl sink, which is usually bigger in size and allows you to wash and rinse the dishes side-by-side, is ideal for large kitchen spaces. Single and double bowl options are available in all types of sinks mentioned above.
