Monday, December 17th, 2012

You cannot do without a sink in your kitchen.Since you use it everyday, it is important that you choose the right one.

You need to choose the right sink for your kitchen so that it can serve you for a long time.There are a number of things to consider when choosing sinks.

What size and style of sink?

Consider the size and design of your kitchen when choosing sinks.The size of the kitchen is the first thing you should think about. If you have a small kitchen, you should not opt for a big sink as it will be overpowering.

The kitchen design will also help you decide which sink to choose. Depending on your needs and preferences, you can choose a sink made from porcelain, stainless steel, plastic, concrete or enamel. Sinks also come in different styles. If you are looking for a sink that drains water instead of allowing it to spill over the edge, you should opt for a Belfast sink. It comes fitted with a weir that prevents overflow.

Before buying a sink, have a look through our range of sinks to see what is available or visit our showrooms to see more options whilst getting expert advice.

Knowing the tap arrangement is necessary to specify the number of faucet holes in your sink. If you have a fitted kitchen, you should consider installing a mixer tap. In this particular kind of tap, cold and hot water from two valves is mixed before it comes out. It is worth noting that mixer taps come with a pressure balancing feature that ensures the ratio of the hot and cold water mixture is not affected by changes in pressure. Therefore, you do not have to worry about scalding or unexpected and uncomfortable chilling as other water loads, such as flushing the toilet, occur.
