One of the most liberating things about a residential design project is the multitude of choices you have. Whether you realize it or not, you can customize a home renovation right down to the type of kitchen sink materials. As you plan out your layout, consider the advantage of these three common sink choices.
Kitchen Sink Materials: Everything you need to Know
A kitchen sink is more than a place to put dirty dishes. It can also enhance the room’s décor. From stainless steel to enamel cast iron to Neoroc composite material, homeowners have a host of terrific choices to pick from.
Stainless steel is probably the most popular choice of all kitchen sink materials, because it is affordable, easy to maintain, heat-resistant and durable. It has a sleek, contemporary look, yet it is still one of the most functional materials available today. A stainless steel sink works well with many different kitchen layouts, including those that have stone or granite countertops.
The downside of stainless steel is that it requires regular cleaning to maintain its look. It can show spots or scratches if abrasive cleaning materials are used on it.
Enameled Cast Iron
Enameled cast iron has long been one of the most popular kitchen sink materials, because it is durable and can feature a glossy finish in a variety of colors. It is often used in traditional and contemporary style kitchens.
An enameled cast iron sink typically has a long lifespan provided that it receives light to medium use. However, these sinks can scratch, stain or chip if they are not properly maintained.
Neoroc Composite Material
Neoroc composite material is an exceptionally durable sink material, which has many advantages and few disadvantages. It is resistant to scratches, stains and chips, or even dropped cookware.
This type of composite granite is very versatile and available in a wide selection of colors. Neoroc composite material has a warm, rich matte finish, which is a nice complement to a natural stone countertop.
Kitchen sink materials come in many other varieties too, but these three alternatives outshine the rest. Whether you choose stainless steel, enameled cast iron or Neoroc composite material, Kohler has all the top-of-the-line sinks to suit your needs.
