Improving the style and function of your kitchen doesn’t have to mean a complete and costly renovation; upgrading your kitchen sink can do wonders. Yesterday we wrote about different materials for your kitchen sink – options galore! So now that you know what you want your sink to be made of, it’s time to consider what bowl configuration makes sense for you. If you use large stock pots or roasting pans regularly, you probably already know how hard it can be to clean them up in a shallow, narrow, builder-grade double bowl sink; a large single bowl may make life easier. On the other hand, some people really like two sinks to keep dirty and clean items separate. There are so many variations available today; read on to find the perfect sink for your kitchen.

Your kitchen sink is one of the most vital elements of your kitchen – have you ever thought about how much time you spend there? Most houses that aren’t custom-built usually come with thin, shallow stainless steel sinks that are not very functional (and not so attractive, either). Today, functionality and style go hand-in-hand when choosing your kitchen sink.  Changing your kitchen sink can be a quick and cost-effective upgrade that will make your time in front of the sink more fun and more functional. Even if you’re on a tight budget, there are wallet-friendly options for you. If you haven’t shopped kitchen sinks for a while, you will be amazed at the options available.

Stainless steel, granite, marble, and copper are just a few of the materials being used to make kitchen sinks these days. If you’re considering remodeling or you are just moving in, it’s important that you do your research beforehand to avoid buying a sink that may have some maintenance or aesthetic issues that can easily be overlooked.  The great thing about purchasing a new sink is that doing so makes it possible to make a major upgrade without having to remodel your entire kitchen, which saves both time and money.

We have all been cooking and found our hands get covered in sauces, raw meat, or pancake batter, and touching the kitchen faucet handle to wash it off is the last thing we want to do.

Lighting contributes to a kitchen's overall look and feel. The right fixtures not only provide task lighting and ambience—they also distinguish different cooking, prep zones and dining zones. You don’t have to be a designer to get creative with lighting décor and you don’t need a big budget, either. That’s great news if you’re just looking to add a splash of color and brighten up your kitchen.
