kitchen sinksSinks, Lavatories and Basins

When it comes to remodeling your kitchen or designing kitchens for a public facitilty, choosing the right style of kitchen sink for your project should be done carefully. We have a wide variety of sinks that come in different styles, shapes, sizes and are made of different materials. Our suppliers include Gerber, Kindred, Wessan and Blanco. The best thing to do when choosing a sink is to remember what you liked or didn't like about your old sink and try to avoid these features when you look at new ones.

Our sinks come in two popular styles:

Self-rimming kitchen sinks
Flush mounted kitchen sinks

A self-rimming sink is the easiest to install because its rim rests on the counter itself, just outside the perimeter of the hole into which the sink fits. This gives plenty of support and lets you fudge the fitting a bit if your hole is a little too big or small. The drawback to self-rimming sinks - at least with cast-iron and composite models - is the height of the rim relative to the counter. Ever try to sweep crumbs or spilled food off the counter into the sink?

A flush mounted sink is rimless and attaches to the counter via a rim that is mounted independently of the sink. The sink is then attached to the rim with a series of clips. These sinks allow for easier cleaning of the counters, but are more difficult to install.

In the past, kitchen sinks were made from enameled cast-iron and only came in one color: white. Today, more color options are available, and you also can find sinks made from other materials, such as stone composite or vitreous china sinks. One of the biggest bargains is the stainless steel sink. It's easy to take care of, doesn't chip, and doesn't show scratches as prominently as enameled sinks. We supply single, double or triple-bowled sinks with features like sprayers, soap dispensers, and even built-in cutting and drain boards.
