Choosing a kitchen sink can be difficult. Nowadays there are never ending styles you can choose from so it can be hard to know what is the best fit for your particular kitchen and lifestyle. Today, we break down our top three go-to kitchen sink styles that are all beautiful and timeless options. You ready?!

Composite Sinks

The first sink style, and one of our favorites, are composite sinks. There are so many reasons why we love these sinks, the main being they come in a wide range of colors, which allows you to have your sink blend into the countertop if you want. This style is especially useful when your sink is located on a kitchen island; it’s as if the sink disappears right into the countertop. We love using composite sinks (such as quartz or silgranit) because they hold up well against scratches and streaks — perfect for dishwashing and rowdy kiddos. You may recognize the sink below, located at the #CountrysideCustom kitchen. It looks bright, fresh, sleek and worked perfectly in this all white kitchen.

Farm Sink

If you’re really looking to make a style statement in your kitchen, I definitely recommend using a farm sink…you know the sink plastered all over Instagram with the beautiful flowers overflowing in it…yeah, it never gets old! 🙂 In the #GameFarmReno kitchen we used a gorgeous hammered copper farm sink that contrasted beautifully against the white cabinetry and gave the kitchen a modern farmhouse charm. Farm sinks can also be found in fireclay or stainless steel — all being gorgeous options! Aside from being pretty, they have a fairly large basin, making your dish washing endeavors much easier.

Last on our top three list is the smart divide sink. The never ending debate that always occurs during client meetings is: single bowl vs. double bowl.  And you’d be surprised at how opinionated people are about this!  I for one am team double bowl all the way, but it does bother me to no end that I can’t fit a large pan in the sink.

That is, until now. The smart divide essentially is a lower divide, which allows you to still have two separate basins (great for washing & rinsing), BUT you can still fit a large pan in the sink.  In the #RaspberryHillHouse we used a stainless steel version, which is great because it’s a classic, durable option.  However, this divide style is available in most material offerings.
