This is the first decision you need to make when it comes to choosing a sink. Are you a one compartment family or do you like two? Was your previous sink everything you wanted or was it missing something?

Sink Materials

Next, you need to decide what you would like your sink to be made out of. There are three classic materials. Stainless steel,  porcelain, and composite.

Sink Installation

There are three common different types of sink installations. Undermount, Drop-In, and Vessel.

Undermount Sink

Drop In Sink

Vessel Sink

Undermounted sinks mean that the sink edges are underneath the countertop and are not visible. This creates a seamless flow from the countertop edge to sink.

A Drop-In sink is the opposite of an undermounted sink, whereas the sink edges are visible on the countertop surface.

Common in bathrooms, a vessel sink, is simply the basin of the sink sitting on top of the countertop. This installation gives off a three-dimensional look to the vanity.
