Types of Sinks
It seems like there are an infinite amount of styles to choose from when it comes to sinks. We will make sure that the sink you choose works best for your lifestyle. In the meantime, here is a general overview of the reasons you may or may not want a particular style of sink.
Under-mount sinks are one of the most popular options for sinks. Because they are positioned under the countertop, this style is nice if you want to keep your sink more discrete, Although, if you have a tighter budget and want a laminate countertop, this particular style is not your best option as these only work with countertops made of more solid material.
Top-mount sinks are very versatile and can be used with a countertop of any material. The clean up on top-mount sinks is bit tougher than under-mount sinks as you can not wipe water directly in to the sink. The rim of the sink can be as thick or thin as you like. This is a great option for customers with a tighter budget who still want a first-class look.
The classic look of a pedestal sink is undeniable. This style is great for low maintenance customers who do not need a lot of storage. Like the top-mount sink, the clean up on this sink can be a little more difficult than under-mount sinks.
If you are interested in a sink that will turn heads, a vessel sink is one of the best options. This style of sink is a symbol of luxury and comfort. These sinks are fantastic because they can hold more water than your typical style of sink. Vessel sinks take a little more planning than traditional ones because you want them to be at a height that is comfortable for you.
Types of Faucets
The four most popular types of faucets include single-hole faucets, center-set faucets, widespread mount faucets, and wall-mount faucets.
Single-hole faucets are the most popular for a reason. They are very easy to install and use. Due to their popularity, almost any style you can imagine can be brought to life with a single-hole faucet. They are typically a modest option, but they can be designed as extravagant as you like.
Center-set faucets are another great option. These faucets use three holes as opposed to one. They are also one of the most popular styles on the market. It is the practical way to go, and can be designed in many different ways.
Widespread faucets are the newest style on this list. This particular style has a larger, smoother stream of water than traditional faucets due to its wide mouth. If your style is exquisite, modern, and luxurious, you will love this faucet style.
The style of wall-mount faucets offer a sense of modernity. Not only does it have a clean look, but it makes cleaning easy. Since this style of faucet is mounted on the wall, it takes no time to clean around the sink. These types of faucets work great with vessel sinks.
