Deeper Thinking: 4 Considerations When Buying A Deep Kitchen Sink

Deeper Thinking: 4 Considerations When Buying A Deep Kitchen Sink

When it comes to how we use our homes, sinks are far more than just a simple utility. They offer so many options for use, from the necessary tasks of washing dishes to the cleaning of fruit and vegetables to ensure they’re safe for us to eat. So, when we’re in the process of choosing a sink, we have a lot of choices to make about how those sinks need to be used and what we value when selecting between them.

For many of us, the benefits of choosing a deep kitchen sink are obvious. You want something that is going to be able to handle any task you throw at it, from a full family worth of dishes needing to be cleaned to vegetables to appliance maintenance to everything else our kitchen sinks end up having to put up with.

So, what should you be looking for in a deep kitchen sink, and what options do you have available to you on your search?

Know Thy Kitchen, Know Thy Sink

When we first step into a showroom of kitchen renovation supplies or start scrolling the internet looking for the best deep kitchen sink money can buy, it’s easy to look at them as distinct from anything else. If we buy the best sink then it will be the best choice every time, right? Well, not quite.

The fact is, there is never going to be an ideal sink for every kitchen, and the best choice for you will be largely determined by the specifics of your kitchen area. In other words, while you may be able to handle the depth of a sink, having a deep kitchen sink that is also incredibly wide may not feasibly fit into the countertop of a tiny kitchen.

Luckily, at BuildMat, we have sinks for practically any kitchen, and our deep kitchen sink range comes in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and styles. For example, one of our more popular deep kitchen sink options is the Seville 900x450 XXLarge Single Bowl Sink.

As the name suggests, this bowl is large, essentially making it a feature piece of any kitchen it finds itself in. With a 250mm depth and a length that far outweighs its width, this sink is an excellent choice for those that have thinner countertops but still want that extra extra large sink.

The Subtleties of Style

When selecting your deep kitchen sink, you need to consider what it will look like in the space. After all, the sink’s depth is going to impact the look of your kitchen just as much as its colour and width, so ensuring that you’re making a choice that suits your personal tastes will ensure that you agree with your purchase for more than just practicality.

If you’d prefer a smaller sink option with those deep kitchen sink benefits, the Brushed Gunmetal Avisa 700x450 Large Single Bowl Sink is the way to go. However, by saying that, we’re discounting a lot of the style that comes with colour.

Colour Consciousness

Although when you picture a kitchen sink, you’re likely picturing a stainless steel or gunmetal finish associated with the metals usually used to make them, that doesn’t mean you don’t have options. Kitchen styles are all different, and whilst gunmetal is a good catch-all for most kitchen aesthetics, you don’t have to stick with just that.

Take the Brushed Brass Gold Avisa 700x450 Large Single Bowl Sink and its beautiful shiny golden finish. The brushed brass look has made its way into kitchen design more and more over the past decade, often as a callback to more artisanal styles and turn-of-the-century brassware.

This is a fantastic thing for kitchen design trends, and opens people up to a wealth of different options when switching up their kitchen sink style.

Corrosion Concerns

With how many deep kitchen sinks are used, prolonged chemical exposure and substance buildup from infrequent maintenance can lead to corrosion over time. Depending on the type of sink, this can also happen from simple day to day use, so it’s important that you look into the materials that make up your sink before you make your final purchase.

At BuildMat, we focus on quality before anything else, which is why we do everything we can to ensure that the materials we use in our sinks are durable and resistant to corrosion, as can be seen in options like the Leo 510x500 Single Bowl Tap Landing Sink. This sink boasts a minimum 18% Chromium and 8% Nickle to ensure it is anti-rust & anti-corrosion, a feature that can be seen in many of our sink varieties.
