Sink / Faucet Styles & Brands

KITCHEN & BATHROOM REMODELS

Farmhouse Sink

A farmhouse style sink, also known as an apron sink, extends over the edge of your counter. This type of sink is most commonly used in a traditional or rustic farmhouse style kitchen and can be designed with a single bowl or double bowl. These sinks are gaining popularity with the resurgence of rustic and farmhouse interior design. They typically come as fireclay or cast iron and are incredibly durable and easy to clean because of their nonporous material.

Undermount Sink

An undermount sink is installed directly under the counter, creating a seamless look from countertop to sink. This type of sink is versatile and works with most kitchen layouts. Not only do these sinks look sleek, but they also make for easy clean up because debris can be pushed straight into the sink without catching on a lip or rim.

Stainless Steel Sink

Stainless steel sinks are light and easy to install, making them a functional and popular option. Stainless steel sinks are categorized by sheeting thickness, or gauge. A thicker gauge means the sink will typically be heavier and cheaper, while a thinner gauge will mean the sink is lighter and often more expensive. Stainless steel sinks tend to be noisier than other sink materials and they can dent, but they offer great heat and stain resistance.

Corner Sink

Corner sinks are double-basin sinks installed on a corner of your counter. The two basins are set apart from each other, in a catty-corner manner. This is a relatively unique design that can be useful if you are looking to maximize your counter space. Corner sinks can be expensive and difficult to install. Since most counters are seamed at the corner, custom cuts in the counter will add to the total cost of installing this type of sink.

Granite Composite Sink

Granite composite sinks are constructed by gluing crushed granite together with a resin filler. This type of sink is incredibly durable and stain resistant while also providing a cutting-edge and modern aesthetic to any kitchen. Granite composite has an inherent sound absorbing effect due to its density. If you're considering a granite composite sink, they are heavier than stainless steel sinks, so you may want to consider adding structural support to accommodate for the extra weight.

Single Bowl Sink

Single bowl kitchen sinks are great for small kitchens with limited counter space. Single bowl sinks make cleaning large cookware much easier because you can lay them flat at the bottom and not have to worry about debris splashing onto your counter. Single bowl sinks aren't great for multitasking like cleaning and cooking at the same time, so they're recommended for smaller households or single individuals.

Top Mount Sink

A top mount kitchen sink, also known as a drop-in sink, drops in to the counter which creates a lip or rim around the sink. This is a versatile option because it's easy to install and provides extra support meaning that you can use almost any material, no matter how heavy. One factor to consider is that grime and debris can get caught on the lip and can make the cleanup more difficult.

Ball Faucet

Ball faucets are very common in kitchen sinks and were the first type of washerless faucet. They are identifiable by their single handle that moves over a rounded ball-shaped cap right above the base of the faucet spout. The ball faucet has a single handle that controls a special plastic or metal ball inside the faucet body. Depending on the ball's position, the ball/lever assembly controls the flow and mixing temperature of the water coming out of the faucet.

Disc Faucet

Ceramic disk faucets are the latest development in modern faucet technology. They are identifiable by their single lever over a wide cylindrical body. The disk faucet mixes hot and cold water inside a mixing chamber called a pressure balance cartridge. Two ceramic disks at the bottom of the chamber will raise and lower to control the volume of water flow.

Cartridge Faucet (Two Handle)

Double-handle cartridge faucets look almost indistinguishable from a compression washer faucet. However, you can tell the difference by how the handles feel when used. A compression faucet requires you to tighten down (compress) the washer to close the water flow. With a cartridge faucet, the action is smooth and consistent.

Compression Washer Faucet

Compression washers have been around since the beginning of on-demand indoor plumbing. They are found in older homes, and updated versions are often found used in utility sinks in newer homes to this day. These faucets are typically the least expensive but are most prone to leaks and maintenance. Compression washer faucets are identifiable by their separate hot and cold water handles and their action requiring you to tighten the handles down to close off the water flow.
