5 Sink Types For Your Natural Stone Countertops

You will have to make many decisions during your kitchen renovations and find a sink that fits the need of your home and family can be challenging. Sinks come in a wide variety of sizes, materials and price ranges. You can choose from materials such as stainless steel, cast iron, composite, porcelain, or concrete and can range in price anywhere from $200 to $1500.

Since this seems like a lot to consider, we have narrowed it down for you and have picked the best styles of sink bowls for your natural stone countertops.

Single Bowl Sinks

Single bowl sinks only feature one basin. Since this sink is only one basin, it can come in compact sizes as well as larger ones, so they are ideal for small spaces or countertops. In terms of cost, single bowl sinks are generally less expensive than a double sink bowl.

Double Bowl Sinks

This sink style features two bowls, which can either be equal size or it can contain one large bowl next to one small bowl. The sizing of your sink just depends on your personal preference and what you need the most. If you are a household that cooks a lot, you should make one sure that one of your bowls is deeper than the other to wash pots and pans.

Top Mount Sinks

Top mount sinks sit on top of your countertops. This sink style allows you see the sink all the way around and can also sit into a prefabricated fairly easy which makes it a less expensive option. One downside to top mount sinks is that the more sink you can see, the more you have to clean.

Under Mount Sinks

Today’s trend is undermount sink. They seem to be the most popular today because they are mounted underneath the counter. This type of sink presents a clean, modern look in your kitchen. Undermount sinks require a little bit more installation work, which can up the cost of your sink.

Integral Sinks

Integral sinks are made out of the same material as your countertop. These types of sinks are most popular for soapstone and granite countertops. Integral sinks are fairly low maintenance and are easy to clean. The one downside to this sink is that if you ever wanted to replace the sink, you would have to replace the entire countertop that it sits in.
