Did you also know that we have a selection of sinks to complement your new quartz or granite countertops? If you’re ready to give your kitchen a facelift, look no further for a wide selection of sink styles and materials.

There are so many options to choose from, which can make the process overwhelming. Don’t worry. Our team has you covered. These are the most important considerations to make before you buy a new sink.  

Choose Your Material

This will be a tough choice, as there are many popular sink materials to choose from. There is:

  • Stainless Steel
  • Composite
  • Cast Iron
  • Porcelain
  • Copper
  • Natural Stone

This list names just a few. So, which should you choose? Many homeowners select a design that is maintenance-free and long-lasting. If you fall in that category, then stainless steel is your option. It can certainly take a beating from most large households. It’s stain-resistant, and scratches can be easily buffed out. It’s durable and long-lasting, but it doesn’t come with the high price tag found in other materials.

Pick the Right Size

Some homeowners don’t take this into consideration. We strongly recommend that you consider the size of your sink for a couple of reasons, one of which we’ll discuss in our next point. But first, it’s important to ask yourself how frequently you will use your sink. If you have a big family and anticipate a sink full of dirty dishes on the daily, you may need to go big. Just make sure that you have enough counter space to accommodate a large sink.

If you live on your own or you have a small family, we recommend selecting the standard-sized option, as this will allow you to save money.  

Consider the Cabinets Under the Sink

You want to choose a new sink that will accommodate your current cabinets unless you’re planning a complete renovation. If you are new to renovating, it’s important to note that complete renovations are extremely costly. If that’s not in your budget right now, do all the necessary measurements to ensure your sink depth and weight can be accommodated by your cabinets.

Single or Double?

If you moved into a new home with double bowls, this is no surprise. Most homes are fitted with the double sink style. So, you probably haven’t considered the pros and cons of a single vs double bowl. Now is the time to pick a team: single or double?

The pros of a double bowl sink are obvious, but we’ll list them anyway:

  • More spacious (also more costly)
  • More practical (dirty dishes can go in one bowl, leaving the other side free for additional uses)

A single bowl doesn’t come without its share of perks. For example, it can accommodate large and cumbersome pots and pans, being more spacious than an individual double bowl. Furthermore, if you have a small family or live on your own, it should have enough space to accommodate your dishes. As you can see, both have their pros and cons. The style you choose will probably come down to style preference and personal needs.

Bottom Line

Are you surprised that selecting a sink would be this challenging? With so many options and considerations, making a final decision may be harder than you imagined. Hopefully, our list has helped you decide, or, at the very least, steered you in the right direction.

One decision that won’t be hard to make is where to go for your new sink design. At Half Price Countertops, we have a large inventory of sink designs and materials to fit every household. You are sure to find the perfect sink to complement your new quartz countertops.
