Cooking is tons of fun until you notice dishes piled up in the sink. Nobody wants to sort through a cramped wash area – so why put up with a tiny sink? If you want a clean and comfortable cooking experience, a large kitchen sink is essential!

Smaller sinks for kitchens usually measure 150mm deep or less, but the products featured here measure close to 250mm. So, if you're ready to clean up your kitchen the easy way, read on for our list of the biggest most beautiful kitchen sinks on the market! 

Types Of Large Kitchen Sinks

If you're looking for size then you've definitely come to right place we've got the largest range of sinks (pun intended), there are three popular types of stainless steel sinks:

  • Single-Bowl
  • ​One and a Quarter Bowl
  • Double-Bowl

When getting a double or one and a Quarter Bowl, use the bigger bowl for storing and soaping larger plates and utensils. The smaller side can be used for preparing food without any potential contamination from dirty dishes.

Installation Type

Before choosing a product, it's important to determine the installation type for a seamless experience. You can select between:

  • Over mount or Top Mount
  • Flushmount
  • Undermount Sink
  • Apron front or Farmhouse

Also make sure you consider having a custom stone countertop rather than a cheaper looking tap landing, with a custom stone bench the tap hole will go on the bench rather than the sink.
