If the kitchen is the busiest room in the house, then the kitchen sink is surely the busiest feature in this room. Used 2 to 3 times daily to prepare and clean-up meals and numerous visits for coffee, tea, hot chocolate and glasses of water. Choosing the right kitchen sink to suit your individual requirements is an important (and often overlooked) decision when designing or renovating a kitchen.
With this in mind we’ve created four galleries that showcase a small selection of sinks Art of Kitchens have installed. Where possible we’ve also included the name of the sink and tap manufacturer. Click on any of the images to view a slideshow. You can also see more kitchen sinks in our gallery.
Undermount kitchen sinks
Undermount sinks are mounted beneath the benchtop. Undermounts create a seamless, modern feel with no gaps where dirt can accumulate and they make for less work as debris can be wiped directly into the kitchen sink.
Apron kitchen sinks
Also known as Butler or Farmhouse sinks, Apron kitchen sinks have a deeper basin and a broad apron-like panel that protrudes from the cabinetry a little. Whilst usually seen in more traditional styled kitchens but stainless and composite models more suited to contemporary style kitchens are now available.
Double bowl sinks
The major benefit of double sinks is multi-tasking. One bowl can be used for food prep and the other for cleaning dishes. You can choose between top or undermount styles, round or square edge, different bowl sizes, partitioned or joined and with or without a side drainer.
Single bowl kitchen sinks
Single sinks also come in a wide range of configurations; top or undermount and with or without side drainers. They are also available in a wide range of sizes, a real plus if you’re a baker and want to submerge an entire baking sheet.
