Choosing the right sink for your fitted kitchen

  • Stainless Steel

So this is the standard sink that most people have in their kitchens. It’s great value for money, very hygienic and hard wearing. The coating means there is no chance of rust and it can be easily cleaned. However, they come in a standard size and can get scratched by other objects.

  • Granite Composite

These sink styles are incredibly stylish and durable. Not to mention they’re impressively scratch resistant and don’t need chemical cleaners. But the main downside comes with the cost of a composite sink. They tend to be on the higher end of the scale, especially compared to stainless steel and ceramic. They’re also a lot heavier than other sinks which means they may need extra support.

  • Enamel/Porcelain

Enamel sinks are very popular thanks to their ease of care and durability. It can so come in a range of different colours to go with any kitchen colour scheme. One of the negatives with enamel or porcelain is that it’s a very soft material and can chip quite easily. The lighter coloured sinks can also take up other colours and become stained.
