Exploring the Hottest Kitchen Sink Trends

Kitchen Remodel Wichita

Choosing a new kitchen sink is a surprisingly major part of any new kitchen renovation, and over the past few decades, sinks have come a long way! With so many options to choose from, varying in size, shape, and material, the idea of picking a complementary sink for your new kitchen renovation may seem daunting. At Southwestern Remodeling, our experts can not only provide you with your ideal kitchen renovation in Wichita, Kansas, but have explored some of the hottest kitchen sink trends of the year. Browse these below!


Simple Self-Rimming Sink

The most common type of sink found in homes today is a self-rimming sink, available in stainless steel, porcelain, and enameled cast iron. Not only is this sink the easiest to install, but it is affordable, durable, and easy to clean as the sink’s weight is supported by a rim that extends above the counter surface. When installing a self-rimming sink, your contractor for your kitchen remodel in Wichita will use the template provided by the sink manufacturer to cut a hole into the counter material and insert the sink from above. The sink’s rim is then caulked to the counter with silicone, which gives this type of sink its name of “self-rimming.”

Ultra Spacious Undermount Sink

Unlike self-rimming sinks, undermount sinks are designed to ensure the sink remains below countertop level. This is an easy way to create a more sleek and modern appearance in your kitchen while remaining practical. Enjoy easy countertop cleanup and the ability to hide the evening’s dinner dishes, as the depth of this sink will provide you with ample space! Undermount sinks should strictly be used with solid-surface countertops such as marble, granite, composite, or enameled cast iron, often making them a higher quality kitchen investment than self-rimming sinks. When installing the sink, your contractor will attach it with special clips to the bottom of your countertops, and you are good to begin using it!

Historic Farmhouse Apron Sink

Are you looking for a timeless addition to your kitchen remodel? Perhaps an apron sink is a perfect choice for you! Intended to resemble historic farmhouse sinks, apron sinks are available in a great variety of materials, from porcelain to stainless steel to copper. What makes these large single-basin sinks unique is their front wall, which forms the front of the sink and counter. While apron sinks can be installed “country style” on top of a cabinet or a freestanding table, most homeowners install the sink at level and integrate it with the kitchen counters. Due to their generous size, these sinks are perfect for washing large baking pans and casserole dishes without the added mess!
