One of the most heavily utilized items in your home is also part of what forms the centerpiece of your kitchen: your sink. The USDA reports that the average individual spends 37 minutes a day preparing, serving, and cleaning up food and meals. This means that you’re spending a few hours each week using the kitchen sink, and that’s just for cooking. The sink is also where you clean, wash your hands, and sometimes even bathe your kids and pets, rinse clothes, and a myriad other household chores. Your kitchen sink is a big deal, so you want to make sure you have one that works for you.
If you spend a lot of time cooking or preparing food, you will understand how important it is to have just the right sink. Not only do you need ample space, you can also benefit from features such as built-in shelves, and you’ll also need a material that won’t stain or tarnish over time. Your sink sees a lot of wear over the years, and given that it’s often a big focal point in a kitchen, you want one that’s durable, stylish, and long-lasting.
