If you really think about it, a great majority of the time you spend in your kitchen is at the sink. Whether you're washing your hands, washing dishes, or preparing food, you rely on the quality and functionality of your kitchen sink and kitchen faucet every day. Because we use kitchen sinks so often, however, it's quite easy to take them for granted. This could be a costly mistake during your kitchen remodeling project, when the sink often serves as the center point of the kitchen design.

There are an awful lot of variables to consider when choosing between the various types of kitchen sinks and kitchen faucets. Sometimes it comes down to a matter of convenience, and other times, it's all about personal preferences. Some people enjoy the advantages of a double bowl sink for separating items, while other prefer the freedom of space provided by a single bowl sink. Curve-necked, pull-down, one-handle faucets are very popular, but some homeowners swear by the twist knob. And what about a sprayer or a garbage disposal? All of these factors don't even include one of the most critical elements of all: what will your new kitchen sink be made from?

Again, this question depends on what design you've envisioned for your kitchen (in other words, how your sink will gel with your kitchen cabinets, flooring, and counter tops), and what type of use you expect your kitchen sink to get. Stainless steel sinks can certainly provide a clean, modern look, but there's also something to be said for the tradition and familiarity of a cast iron and porcelain sink. Copper, nickel, and brass are solid materials, as well, and many kitchen contractors even offer services in acrylic and composite stone sinks. Which choice is the best? There's no one answer, of course. If you're not sure what type of sink or faucet would be best for your remodeled kitchen, your best bet is to discuss it in detail with a reputable kitchen remodeling contractor. They can guide you toward the best sink and faucet designs made by leading names like GE, Viking, Whirlpool, Bosch, Moen, and more.
