The 4 Most Important Factors to Consider When Buying a Kitchen Sink

Imagine a kitchen without a sink. The space looks incomplete, don’t you agree? The kitchen sink is essential in the kitchen, as it’s where we wash dishes and food and perform other kitchen tasks. While it’s easy to pick just any sink, it helps to go for one that suits your needs and the overall style of your cooking area.

Whether you’re looking for a single-bowl sink, a double-bowl sink, or something more one-of-a-kind, the reminders below can help you shop for a kitchen sink that will last for years to come.

4 things to consider when buying a kitchen sink

1. Choose the right material.

As with most kitchen essentials, sinks are available in a variety of materials. Choosing a sink material depends on how much you’re willing to spend, how often you use the kitchen, and what matches the style of your cooking space.

Stainless-steel sinks are a popular choice due to their affordability and widespread availability. Cast-iron sinks, on the other hand, are a preferred option for some people because of their sturdiness and availability in different colors. Porcelain sinks are another option that can add flair to any kitchen, and solid-surface sinks are easy to maintain, but they may be susceptible to scratches and chips. 

It's advisable to conduct research on different sink materials and seek professional advice before making a final decision. If you're visiting a store, the sales attendant should be able to provide you with a comprehensive rundown of the pros and cons of different kitchen sink materials. To get started, you can check out the kitchen sinks available at Sanitec. 


2. Take note of the size.

Consider the size of your kitchen and the space you can allot for your sink. Making accurate measurements can help you pick the right style. Since doing work in the kitchen is considered a big renovation project, you may want to work with a design professional who can oversee the project and make informed suggestions.

When it comes to size, you can always go for the standard size that measures around 22 to 33 inches long, especially if you don’t prepare food often. If you have the countertop space to accommodate a big sink, opt for a bigger size that allows you to work and wash things efficiently. Primy kitchen sinks come in different shapes and sizes, providing you with enough options so you can choose the best one for your space.


3.Pick a style. 

Are you looking for more options for your kitchen sink? Well, you also need to choose a sink style. There are various options to consider, starting with undermount sinks, which are installed beneath the countertop and can be quite expensive to install. Most kitchens feature drop-in sinks, where the sink is dropped into a hole in the countertop. Compared to undermount kitchen sinks, drop-in sinks are more affordable and can be easily replaced.

For those who want to make a statement, a farmhouse sink, just like Primy’s farmhouse single bowl sink, is a popular choice as it can instantly become a focal point in the kitchen. However, as attractive as farmhouse sinks may be, they can be challenging to install since you need to consider the base cabinets in your plans


4. Determine if you need a single bowl or a double bowl.

If you have the budget for it, consider getting a double-bowl sink. This option provides more space, especially when washing dishes, pots, and pans. However, if you prefer a classic look, a single-bowl sink is a good choice. Just make sure to choose a large enough bowl to provide enough space for washing.

If you’re looking for kitchen sinks in different styles and materials, you can look into the options offered by Kohler. Having been in the industry for over 100 years, Kohler has grown into a trusted and well-loved brand by homeowners and design professionals alike.

Kohler sinks are available in single and double-bowl versions, and you can also choose if you want a self-rimming sink or an undermount sink in different finishes. If you prefer a double-bowl sink, you can look into the available products that have a bigger bowl on one side that comes in handy when washing utensils, fruits, and vegetables.

Kohler and Primy products, as well as other kitchen essentials, are available at Sanitec. You can schedule a visit to the Sanitec showrooms in Quezon City, Ortigas, and Taguig, or log on to to see the products before visiting the showroom.

  • I made the decision to do some research to assist my uncle in getting a new sink for his house. It’s a good thing I found your blog because you mentioned taking your kitchen’s size and the amount of space you can dedicate to your sink into consideration. As you mentioned, taking precise measurements can helps in selecting the appropriate style. I’ll definitely let him know about this and look into shops that can assist us in purchasing one.
