Kitchen Sink



I am installing Verde Peacock granite countertop on white cabinetry and plan to use brushed stainless steel faucet. What kind of sink should I choose - brushed stainless, a porcelain "smart divide" in white or bisque, or something else? Also, can you tell me what are pro and con on equal bowl vs offset sinks?

Thank You!


Brushed stainless steel or white (bisque) porcelain sink are both will match your chosen kitchen decor. They have a classic look and fit almost any styles and colors. So the choice depends only on your taste and preferences.

As for single or double kitchen sink – I would consider several things when choosing one. Keep in mind that with single sink you will have one spacious bowl, while with equal bowl sink – two, but smaller bowls. Think about your activities and preferences in the kitchen. If you need to soak a lot of dishes, or even one large pan, the single bowl would be more practical. Equal bowl sinks are good when you want to use one bowl for washing dishes, and another for food preparation (washing vegetables, draining pasta and so on).
Off-set drain sinks are ones that have drains placed on the sink side, not in center. They are very practical for several reasons:
  • You can fill the sink with many dishes or place a large pan without fearing that they will close a drain and won’t let water to flow.
  • Off-set drain will also provide you with more storage space under sink.

Summary: if a kitchen allows to install two sinks I would get one double and one single bowl sinks. For smaller kitchens I would consider off-set drain kitchen sink for practical purposes.

Hope it will help you,
