A Little Trivia about Kitchen Sink

Since prehistoric times, humans have been concerned with sanitation. So, the sink is arguably one of the first examples of both disease control and access to fresh water. Interestingly enough, sinks as we now know them did not evolve until the early twentieth century. Before this period, a sink would have been defined as a washstand complete with a pitcher of water and a deep bowl. Once the clean water became dirty, it was simply discarded or even thrown out of the window. Some historians believe that this could have had an influence on the word "loo"; homeowners would have warned "watch out below" when dumping their water.

Modern plumbing and materials have now enabled us to enjoy kitchen sinks and the numerous amenities that they have to offer. As may be guessed, choosing the best model will depend on such variables and the amount of people it will service, its dimensions, the location in question and how to best match any existing decor. Let us take a look at stainless-steel type sink to get a better idea.

Stainless Steel type of sinks are the most common types. They are made from high-grade, thick steel and provide a polished and clean look kitchen that many people find attractive. Stick with low-gauge steel instead of thinner steels that have high gauge numbers (19+). High-gauge steel is tougher, less "tinny" and will outlast inferior steels.

Ceramic & Fragranite Sinks

Although we have already seen that stainless steel sinks are quite popular, ceramic and a substance known as Fragranite are seeing increased use within the kitchen. The more familiar ceramic will boast durability and easy cleaning properties. There are two variants to be selected. While the entire basin can be constructed of this material, some homeowners will choose a metal that is coated with a layer of ceramic. This can help to reduce the overall weight and thickness of the basin while not compromising strength. As the ceramic is heat treated within a factory, it is highly resistant to chipping or cracking.

Fragranite is a material which not many people are familiar with. This substance is actually nothing more than normal granite that has been subjected to massive amounts of heat and pressure. During this process, individual stones are fused together. There are several massive advantages with this substance. First, food particles and bacteria are much less likely to become trapped on the surface (Fragranite is not porous). This also makes it much easier to clean. Stains will not set permanently and even foods such as red wine or beetroot will normally not present a problem. Other benefits include:

  • Impact resistance.
  • Scratch-proof surfaces (important for knives and forks).
  • A resistance to a great deal of heat.
  • Colours will not fade during the lifetime of the basin.

Fragranite can be manufactured in numerous styles, shapes and hues. So, many homeowners look at this novel material as an effective alternative to stainless steel or ceramic sinks.

What is the Ideal size?

It is vital that you consider the size of the sink. Buying one that is too small or too large may, once again, mean altering the design and layout of existing units, and this means that you will have to pay considerably more than the cost of just buying the sink. If you want to upgrade from a single bowl to one and a half bowl or a double bowl design, though, it may be necessary to undertake this change as part of the installation process.

Reviews
Delighted with the sink. It is actually better than we expected. We have changed from a stainless steel sink and this composite sink is even easier to clean. QS Supplies was the best price and it was delivered very quickly. Would buy from them again

The quality of this sink is amazing. Not only the finish of the product but everything has been thought through very carefully. The packaging, template provided and instructions are excellent. On top of this the additional fitting parts like the waste, overflow and drainer plugs are of the highest quality and fast simple and compliment the sink perfectly for a leak free excellent finish. This was not a cheap sink and you could wonder why pay the extra but it is worth every penny and once it is installed you can tell the difference and it will last for years to come. We bought a Franke Wave tap to go with the sink and once again this matches perfectly and is of equally high quality and worth every penny too.

I was sold hook, line and sinker regarding this product. From a functional perspective it ticks all the boxes, comfortably accommodating our family washing up needs. It also looks stunning and particularly complements our granite black surrounds. I would not hesitate in recommending this product which combines style and functionality perfectly.

The sink looks lovely and was the cheapest I found it. I was initially sent the wrong one, which had to be collected, returned to the warehouse before the right one was sent out. The process took about 3 weeks and customer service weren't exactly apologetic. Lucky I bought it 2 months before the new kitchen was going in, otherwise I would've been very nervous.
