If you’re planning a kitchen remodeling project it’s important to think out the design and layout before you start picking out appliances and cabinets. The kitchen is the heart of the home and when it comes to resale one of the biggest determining factors to a potential buyer. Kitchens are the most used room in many houses and kitchen sinks are probably the most used area of a kitchen. Because it is used for both cleaning and food prep, it can quickly become a crowded space. So, the kitchen sink is very important part of your kitchen and should not be forgotten when designing your kitchen.
Since most kitchens are made to fit proportionally within the square feet of home most kitchens lack size. One way to add functionality in the kitchen is to add additional second food prep sink. This is especially helpful if more than one cook will be in the kitchen at a time. One can use the prep sink while the other makes use of the standard kitchen sink. Even if you’re in the kitchen by yourself having more than one kitchen sink can allow you to soak dishes in your main kitchen sink while still prepping food in the other. Adding a prep sink literally doubles the functionality of a kitchen without adding to the square footage.
Sinks should be durable and easily maintained. Sinks are available in all kinds of shapes, sizes and materials, and can include a wide range of accessories. Most sinks come in stainless steel, porcelain and enameled cast iron. Self-rimming or drop-in sinks are the most popular type of sink and the easiest to install. Undermount sinks, which are installed below the countertop, offer a beautiful look and allow for easy cleanup. These sinks can only be used with solid-surface countertops, such as marble or granite. Enameled cast iron, is another popular material for kitchen sinks – they come in various sizes and are affordable as well. Apron sinks are available in a wide range of materials, including porcelain, stainless steel and copper and have become increasingly popular over the years.

When it comes to appliances one of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make is freestanding or built in unit. Freestanding units are most popular because of cost and installation purposes. If you want to take the extra step to achieve a seamless look, built-in appliances might be the right choice for your kitchen. Built in appliances or commercial grade appliances are preferred by chefs for its quality, energy efficiency and consistency. Built in appliances look great but cost double if not triple the amount of freestanding appliances.
