(2.0) Two Bowl & (2.5) Bowl Kitchen Sinks / QS Supplies

Two-bowl sinks are commonly seen in many kitchens. The reason that two sinks are preferred arises from the fact that one can be used for washing while the other can be used for rinsing. Also, hot and cold water can be kept separate—ideal when cooking or cleaning vegetables. The bowls are usually are quite deep, and the overhead faucet can swivel from side to side in order to fill each bowl appropriately. Here, we have showcased a full range of 2.0 Bowl Stainless Steel, Fragnite and Ceramic Kitchen Sinks. Besides these features, other designs are similar to the previously mentioned one-bowl variety.

Two & Half Bowl Sinks

Two & Half Bowl Type sinks is one of the most interesting variants of kitchen sinks and features a smaller bowl, and it is situvated alongside the two larger ones. This can serve a variety of purposes; one of the most common being a place to wash, peel and clean foodstuffs (fruits and vegetables). Also, meat or fish can be allowed to thaw in this portion. The drain can be blocked, and this "half bowl" can be filled with warm water to help with the process. Also, some sinks will have a garbage disposal attachment built into the drain of this smaller basin. So, an efficient form of waste removal is available which is perfectly suited when one is preparing meals on a regular basis. There are various configurations to enjoy when selecting this type of sinks.

Need a Professional Installer

Depending upon the size of the two bowl sink, it should be noted that it can be very challenging to manipulate larger models and will require two workers to safely put into place. Also, plumbing can be an issue for those who are unfamiliar with pipes, gaskets and connections. Hooking up any sink incorrectly can cause major issues such as leaks and water damage.

Choosing The Right Design

How can you choose the most appropriate style and design for your kitchen? Obviously, price should always be the first consideration and this needs to be weighed against the lifespan of the sink. At QS Supplies, we offer kitchen sinks that are economical in rate, as we understand it is always better to spend a bit more and enjoy a functionality that can last for decades or longer (for example, Fragranite sinks can come with warranties for as many as ten years).

Once the price levels have been determined, take a look at the space that you have to work with. Single and double basins will work well in most homes although a larger counter top can be perfect for a two-and-a-half bowl model. If you choose to employ an overhead hood, is there an existing air duct that can be used? If not, how much work will it take to install one? This is an important practical question, for it can be difficult to tackle such a project (particularly in older homes).

After these rather functional considerations are out of the way, you need to think about style. Are you searching for a minimalist appearance or do you hope to enjoy a traditional appeal? Does the kitchen offer subdued colours or are bright pastels present? Keeping your selection in line with this existing decor is a wise approach. The sink should also match the overall shapes seen within the room. For example, a square basin will fit well in a kitchen that is comprised of similarly square counters and cabinets. On the other hand, rounded surfaces are better suited for an oval or circular basin. Taps can also reflect numerous styles.

A final variable to factor into this equation is the materials that are to be used. We have already seen that steel sinks are quite popular for their functional and "clean" appeal, but ceramics and glass are also possible. In the same way, it is worthwhile to consider modern variants such as Fragranite. This arises from the fact that the sink is likely to be the single appliance that is used the most frequently in your entire home. So, choosing one that is built to last is obviously much better than selecting a model that will encounter a problem within only a few years and need to be serviced or replaced entirely.

These are some of the most basic (and important) considerations to take into account when choosing a sink for your kitchen. Although these units obviously serve a very real purpose, we should never forget that their style, colour, shape and design can likewise create a lasting impact within the home. Understanding the basics is therefore critical. By keeping this checklist in mind and speaking with a qualified professional, you can make the best choice possible. As a result, expect to enjoy years of durability and aesthetic beauty!

Reviews
I have an old fashioned love of washing dishes. This well made solid sink makes it easy. Wash up in the left hand sink and rinse in the other. It 's as simple as that and beats any other sink I have used. It also does the same brilliant job for my wife when she is washing woolies...wash then rinse, job done! Oh yes the plugs are excellent too. containing unwanted bits from going down the plug and making emptying the sink hassle free.

After much searching we dropped onto this site. A double sink. Ordered and delivered promptly. The kitchen fitter found it easy to under mount it. 12 months on it still looks good.
