Remodeling your kitchen likely involves new countertops, flooring, appliances, etc. You should also consider upgrading your sink as well. When it comes to choosing kitchen sinks, you have a lot of options available between materials and styles.

Which Kitchen Sink is Best for You?

In this article, we will aim to make your decision a little easier by discussing the pros and cons of the many sink materials we have available.

  • Stainless steel: This is among the most popular choices for kitchen sinks. It comes in a silver steel color that will match just about anything and is highly durable, easy to clean, and stain resistant, making it a great choice for frequent dish washing. However, water stains and scratches can develop over time.
  • Granite composite: Granite composite kitchen sinks are typically made of a mixture of granite stone dust and acrylic resin, giving them a natural stone appearance and high durability against heat, scratches, and chips. However, this sink will need to be cleaned regularly to maintain its condition and lifespan.
  • Hammered copper: Hammered copper kitchen sinks can offer a classical appearance and feel to your kitchen with the beautiful copper color that will only deepen over time. It is rust-resistant, but it can sometimes stain or dent easily.
  • Cast iron: Cast iron kitchen sinks are known for their high durability and retaining heat well. They’re also very easy to clean. However, the heaviness of the cast iron can require additional support or bracing for the sink installation to avoid any damage. It can also stain fairly easily.
  • Porcelain: Porcelain kitchen sinks are another classy option that will keep your kitchen shining. They are stain resistant and easy to maintain, but the porcelain isn’t a particularly sturdy material that can withstand high impact well.
