Do you use the kitchen a lot? If you need a lot of space in washing up your pots, pans and dishes, then compared to many other sink designs the apron front kitchen sink can meet your requirements. Designed for heavy duty use, you get a larger basin space to clean up your kitchenware at one go after meals. You can also wash the larger pots and pans a lot easier. Other than the larger basin space, one thing that makes the apron sink stand out is having its front always visible. Very much like an apron on your kitchen countertop, the sink hangs over the edge to catch any water spillage that might otherwise ruin your wooden countertop. Finding a sink matching your theme is much easier these days with the various number of designs, colours and materials available.
Each material will also have its advantages and disadvantages, of course. But with a little research you should be able to decide on which suits your needs and budget best. One of the basic criteria that you need to look into is the size of the sink. You will need one that fits into the countertop of the kitchen that gives you enough usage space as well as without leaving any gaps on the sides. While most of the sizes are standard, sometimes you may need to get a customized sink to fit your kitchen. If this is the case, it is possible to order one.
One issue to resolve before purchasing your country kitchen sink is how much use it will receive. For many households where the kitchen is the center of activity, a kitchen sink should be constructed from heavy-duty materials. Although, dishwashers have minimized the use of sinks somewhat, there is still a need for rinsing dishes before they get to the dishwasher. Kitchen sinks can be a no-man‘s land where the cook may drain spaghetti into a collander or sand is rinsed from lettuce. Certainly, potatoes always need to be rinsed and scrubbed before peeling. It‘s a good idea to consider a garbage disposal when installing a new country sink. This will make it far less likely for you to clog up the pipes as the garbage disposal system will chop any items into small pieces before they go down the drain.
Another consideration you should also keep in mind when making your choice is the strength of the sink. To get a very durable sink, go for one that says it is between 16 to 18 gauge steel. With thicker steel, you are assured of the durability of the sink. However, that will also mean a higher price tag. Therefore, decide on what you need first so that you do not exceed your budget. Since the Elkay sinks are available in various sizes, you should consider the size of your kitchen as well as what you need the sink for. If you tend to use larger pots and pans regularly, then you will need to buy a bigger sized sink but otherwise, you could just buy a bowl sink.
