Are you considering a remodel yet on your bath or kitchen? A great rule of thumb will be to begin that process by taking a good look at how you use your sink and faucet will help you select the perfect kitchen or bath partners. Let's go through that process. You may find some special needs on your wishlist you hadn't thought about.
How will you use your new sink? - One of the first things to consider are color and style. This can be a fun and exciting part of choosing a sink. But taking the time to think about how you actually use your sink will go a long way toward helping you choose the one that will work best for your needs. Don’t wait till after the fact. For example, if you use a dishwasher, you may prefer a sink with a large single basin. If you hand-wash your dishes, a two- or three-basin sink might work better. Double- or triple-basin sinks often feature a separate basin for garbage disposal or recycling, a small addition that can greatly enhance your workflow.
Do you like to challenge yourself in the kitchen? - Do you aspire to prepare meals worthy of a professional chef? If so, you’ll want to consider KOHLER PRO sinks. These products offer the convenience of food preparation and water-based cooking all in one location.
Do you need a prep sink? - A prep sink can serve as a separate workspace in your kitchen, greatly improving your efficiency. If you love to entertain or have a large family this may be just the thing for you. It can provide extra space for food preparation, perhaps a convenient place to mince garlic or a great place to chill a bottle of wine.
How much space do you have? - The amount of countertop space you have and how it’s configured are also very important factors in determining the size and shape of your sink. If you’re remodeling and don’t plan to change the countertop, remember to take into consideration the cutout area of your old sink. If you have limited counter space, think about using a sink that incorporates a cutting board over the sink basin.
Are your sink and faucet compatible? - To make sure you’ve got a good match between your sink and faucet, you’ll need to look at more than style. Consider which accessories you want and determine how they will attach to the countertop or, more commonly, through a pre-drilled hole on the sink. You’ll also have to decide whether you want a traditional faucet or one that pulls down or out to reach a wider work area. Once you’ve made these decisions, you can move on to the really fun stuff: style, finish and color. But first, you need to think about:
Faucet Hole Drillings - Typically, there are between one and four holes available on a sink, depending on the style of faucet and type of accessories. The additional holes are used to fit accessories such as a soap/lotion dispenser, Piping Hot hot water dispenser or a Wellspring™ faucet with water filtration.
