If you are in the College Park, MD area and are looking for a quick and easy way to update your kitchen, we have another great idea this week. A couple of weeks ago, we talked about how just by changing the paint color in your kitchen, it can update the look. This week we are going to cover changing the sink to update your kitchen. Today we are going to cover a few of the more popular choices you have when choosing a new kitchen sink:
Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink: This is the most popular type of material used because it is the least expensive. It is susceptible to scratches, and some people find it the hardest material to keep looking clean (soap-scum and stains display vividly on stainless steel).
Cast Iron Kitchen Sink: These are more expensive, but are easier to keep clean. Additionally, since they are coated in a porcelain enamel, they do not scratch as easily as stainless steel can. These are made in the same way a cast iron skillet would be made, so you know that they are very durable. They are extremely heavy, so the counter that is holding this must be able to hold the weight.
Concrete Kitchen Sink: These are always a custom treat since not everyone uses this material. Each one is basically one of a kind. Concrete does require for periodic sealants, and just like with the cast iron material, you do need to make sure the counter can support the weight.
After you choose your material, you do have the option of either a single bowl sink or a double bowl sink. Most of the times, people opt for the double bowl sink so they can wash on one side and let the dishes dry on the other. So if you want to change the look of your kitchen, updating your kitchen sink is an easy way to do it. At House to Home Solutions, we can help you choose the sink materials that best fit your needs.
