Want space for large oven trays?
If you want a kitchen sink large enough to fit large oven trays, go for a large single bowl. This is sometimes called a 105 bowl. The Carron Phoenix Tetra 105, Astracast 4054 & Rangemaster Atlantic Kube 700 (all pictured below) are all examples of large single bowl sinks.
Flexibility to wash up & pour something down the sink at the same time?
If you want to be able to wash up at the same time as pouring something down the sink, go for a 1.5 bowl sink (pictured below). However, as flexible as a 1.5 bowl sink is, neither bowl will be wide enough to accommodate large oven trays. The reason for this is that the main bowl on a 1.5 bowl sink will be smaller than the main bowl on a single bowl sink.
Want a sink that’s easy to clean & maintain?
With their perfectly square corners, zero degree radius sinks (1st picture below) are the ultimate in designer style. However, this look does come at a price. As the corners on these are so sharp & tight, they’re almost impossible to clean. If you like the very square look but want something that’s easy to clean, I would recommend choosing a sink with a 10 or 15mm corner radius instead. (2nd picture below)
Want the ultimate in country kitchen styling?
For the ultimate in country kitchen styling, nothing beats a ceramic sink. especially a ceramic butler sink (1st picture below). However, it’s important to remember that ceramic sinks are easy to crack, especially if something heavy (like a large saucepan of water) is accidentally dropped into them.
Like the look of a ceramic kitchen sink but worried about cracking it?
If you like the traditional look of a ceramic kitchen sink but you’re worried about cracking it, why not go for a white granite kitchen sink instead. Made from approximately 70% quartz particles, granite sinks are so tough they’re almost indestructible. In fact, if you run a metal folk across a granite sink pushing down hard, the silver coloured lines left on the sink won’t be the sink scratching, but the metal from the folk coming off. These lines can simply be wiped of with no damage to the granite sink.
