      When choosing a sink for your space, size is a very important factor. When our customers purchase sinks before talking to us, they often purchase sinks that are too large. You also need to consider whether or not you want a single or double bowl, the material of the sink, and how the sink is mounted.

      Many sink manufacturers offer “dual mount sinks”. These sinks are supposed to be either drop-in or undermount. Unfortunately, about 50% of these cannot be undermounted. They will either just not fit in the cabinet, or the faucet holes will not line up correctly.

      Before making a financial commitment, discuss your individual needs with a qualified fabricator, such as Architectural Stone Works, so that you know all of your options and are able to make an informed decision.

      Vanity

      According to Build.com, vanity sinks are usually made to fit the cabinet they sit on. The base and the walls of the sink are one solid piece that is fitted to form the top of the cabinet. There may or may not be storage underneath, such as shelving or drawers, depending on the style of cabinet.

      When designing a bathroom, many homeowners give top priority to their cabinet selection. While the cabinet is indeed an important piece of furniture and storage, the actual sink and countertop are what make the bathroom flow – see what we did there!

      A custom marble, granite, or quartzite sink makes for a truly exceptional design. A custom stone sink, that only qualified stone fabricators can provide, will take your bathroom from utilitarian to upscale.

      Infinity Edge

      If you are looking for a stunning conversation piece in your bathroom or bar area, look no further than an infinity edge sink. These sinks are inspired by the infinity pools found at luxury resorts and high-end homes. They do not have a traditional circular drain on the bottom. Instead, their flat surface uses a drain slot around one or more of the edges of the sink.

      Due to its unique design, a low flow-rate faucet with either a waterfall design, or one that does not send the water out at an angle, will work best with an infinity edge sink. To avoid splashing, it is also best to have a faucet where the spout height does not greatly exceed the height of the sink.

      Stainless Steel Undermount

      According to Houzz, stainless steel is consistently one of the most popular materials for kitchen sinks. “When it comes to cleaning habits and durability with a range of affordable options, it’s king,” they say. However, stainless steel is also a great option for bathrooms as well.

      Stainless steel resists bacteria and germs, and is able to withstand tough scrubbing. Additionally, this type of sink can be paired with most countertop materials because of its sleek color and look. Stainless steel sinks are light and easy to install, making them a functional and popular option.

      Stainless steel sinks are categorized by sheeting thickness, or gauge. A thicker gauge means the sink will typically be heavier and cheaper. A thinner gauge will mean the sink is lighter and often more expensive.

      Stainless steel sinks tend to be noisier than other sink materials and they can dent, but they offer great heat and stain resistance.

      An undermount sink is installed directly under the counter, creating a seamless look from countertop to sink. This type of sink is versatile and works with most kitchen layouts. Not only do these sinks look sleek, but they also make for easy clean up. Debris can be pushed straight into the sink without catching on a lip or rim. Although slightly more expensive than its drop-in counterpart, undermount sinks typically provide a higher resale value.

      There is an extensive array of beautifully crafted sinks and faucets for your kitchen and bath on the market today. Whether it’s a vanity, infinity edge or stainless steel undermount sink, we’ll help you find one that matches your individual needs and unique style.
