Choose your kitchen sink in 4 easy steps
01 Go for robustness
Of course you want your kitchen sink to look good but remember to also consider resistance and ease of care:
- stainless steel: rust and heat-resistant (up to 1450 °C), absorbs shocks and is extremely hygienic because it is non-porous. Added bonus: stainless steel is durable and can be recycled.
- ceramic: heat-proof and excellent resistance to impact and scratches. Also resistant to chemicals, making it easy to clean.
- synthetic: 80 % quartz stone and 20% synthetic resin. Excellent resistance to scratches, acids and heat up to 280 °C.

One or two sinks? That choice will obviously be dictated by the amount of space you have to play around with. If you opt for one, you could either go for a medium-large or large one. If you have your heart set on two, both sinks will be similar in size unless you go for a one and a half bowl kitchen sink. Depending on whether you are right or left-handed the draining board can positioned right or left.
03 Comfort is also an important factor
Check how much space you have under the sink. In function of the available space you can opt for a built-in (recessed or at the same level as the work top) or a top-mount model.
04 Choose a tap that suits your kitchen
A kitchen sink obviously needs a tap. All manufacturers now produce taps that are easy to operate and allow you to control both the intensity of the water jet and the temperature of the water. All you need to decide on is the colour: silver, gold, bronze, black, white, red, yellow, blue....
