When designing a kitchen or bathroom, choosing a material for the sink can become a stressful but exciting decision. Sinks are not only functional, but they are also one of the first things you see when you walk into a room. As such a focal point, a sink should look beautiful, match your decor, and be able to to do its job. Stainless steel may be the right choice for you, and here are some reasons why:
No matter how much you like to look at your sink, the fact remains that you probably have to use it multiple times a day. If you want a sink that won't dent, crack, or stain, stainless is the way to go. Stainless steel is very durable, thanks in part to the addition of chromium to its composition. Chromium builds strength and helps keep the steel from rusting.
Easy to Clean
You can easily care for your stainless steel sink. If you wish, you can just use warm, soapy water and a scrub brush or sponge to clean off the surface. If you prefer something stronger, you can do so since the stainless steel will continue to retain its original luster. You can use your product of choice without hesitation when disinfecting your surfaces.
Options at Different Price Points
Stainless steel is a smart choice because there is usually an option to fit budgets of all levels. More affordable sinks are fairly straightforward in terms of size and design, and higher-end stainless steel sinks might include custom pieces, larger sinks, and sinks that are made of a thicker material.
The thickness of stainless steel is measured by gauge, and a lower gauge number corresponds with a thicker material. For example, you could go with a 20 gauge double bowl top mount, or you could go with a 16 gauge undermount apron sink.
Many people looking for quality bathroom vanities want something classic and timeless. Stainless steel checks those boxes, as it has clean lines, a smooth texture, and a cool hue. Having those qualities means that stainless steel can nicely complement woods, tiles, and other materials commonly found in contemporary bathroom vanities and kitchens. You can decide on whether you want a mirrored finish, glossy sheen, or brushed appearance depending on the type of look you're going for. You can also choose from a farmhouse style apron front, a topmount, or an undermount sink.
