The Kitchen Sink

Sinks are fairly innocuous. They stay under your cabinet...catch and dispose water. Before you buy a cheap one, understand that replacing a sink involves re-plumbing faucets, disposers and possibly the dishwasher.

Couple of easy solutions:

1. Sizing: Sinks, like appliances, follow cabinets. Cabinet sizes are predominantly 25,33 and 38 inches. Sinks are 22, 30 and 36 inches.

2. Gauge: Refers to the amount of nickel in the sink. 18 Gauge is considered decent, but there is more nickel in a 17 gauge product. More nickel means a more scratch resistant sink.

3. Shape: Never understood the double bowl, big single bowls have become more popular.

Have a look at some new 17 gauge sinks...
