ATLANTA, GA, May 26, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta countertops specialists, Craftmark, discuss how to select the perfect stainless steel sink for your kitchen. This material has long been popular and will remain so for many years to come thanks to its low cost and long-lasting durability.
Metal is virtually impervious to damage, though it is not immune to surface scratches. While there are some homeowners who find stainless steel to be a humdrum option, there is no doubting the advantages it has concerning maintenance.
Stainless Steel Never Goes out of Style
Since stainless steel is nonporous, you never have to worry about water damage like you would with alternative sink types. To make your kitchen sink even more functional and desirable, consider spending the extra money on an under mount model. These are installed below the counter top surface, which makes it easy to sweep food crumbs into the sink and wipe down the counters without interference.
The main consideration when buying any sink is size. You want to make sure there is plenty of room for dishes, including all those over-sized pots and pans that get used on the holidays and for special occasions! Too large of a sink can be a kitchen design buzzkill too. The rule of thumb for a typical 150-square-foot cooking space is to install a 22 x 24 sink, though the choice is ultimately yours to make.
According to Melinda Pulliam, Director of Marketing for Craftmark, "The gauge of the sink will have a direct impact on how much 'impact' it can take. The lower the gauge, the thicker the material and the less chance of dents and dings. Ask about available sound insulation products that can be installed around the under mount to reduce noise. Clanking metal can be quite annoying!"
