Just as you would make a large table a focal point of your kitchen furnishings, the kitchen sink is in itself a major centerpiece that is functional and central to any plan. Before you can plan other details for your kitchen concept ideas, you need to give careful thought as to what kind of sink you require.
There are endless choices including ranges of color as well as material and what type of kitchen sink you feel best falls into your plan. Functionality is a major factor but naturally, looks mean a lot too if you're looking for centerpieces that fit in with your vision of the ideal kitchen. The sink is possibly the most used and functional part of any kitchen and the right choice is important.
The choices are wide with various types from copper, ceramic, granite and the ever-popular stainless steel. Also, you are not limited with choices as there are various styles and one creative choice these days for many is the under-mount kitchen sink.
A popular choice with many is often positioned at a window. However, your choice of where to put your sink can be limited by the existing plumbing as changing position means extra pipe work which can be costly to install.
Most commonly, people choose stainless steel for its durability and easy maintenance. For some, something a little more unique such as granite or copper is more in keeping with their vision, but for many the hard-wearing nature and easy clean stainless steel options are adequate and practical.
First, you need to decide on where you want it, and if it is to be moved to another position, then you have to consider the cost of moving it, and whether the general upheaval and extra pipe fitting is worth it. However, if you are planning your dream kitchen, then it is a task you may well be fully prepared to undertake.
Another consideration is that although it may be an additional expense, it is something you will only be paying for once. If you envisage yourself at the window looking out as you do the washing up, then it's well worth it as having to improvise with such a central fixture such as a kitchen sink can seriously limit your ideas. For that reason, for those that want the ideal kitchen, then the kitchen sink needs to be in the ideal location.
It is advisable to decide on what kind of sink you want and where you want it well in advance of any other ideas you may have. The kitchen sink is the heart of your kitchen and it pays to decide on the color, material and design, as until you do, it is difficult to plan the rest of your kitchen concept ideas.
Possibly the most vital decision you can make, and from there, all your other plans and style of furnishings can evolve.
Ah yes, the all import kitchen sink. We spend so much time there; but we still actually forget how the size, shape and configuration can improve the function. This is modern times where form and function go together more than just in words.
Placement is a huge part of your choice of sinks. If you have a window (please say yes) consider using the window as a spice and herb garden area. The moisture from the sink is certainly a plus for growing green things. The ability to look outside while your hands are in hot soapy water just does something good for the soul. Watching children or a garden can be soothing and refreshing at the same time; as well as being able to make sure the little ones are fine. In addition, you may be able to find a little peace and quiet that is yours alone.
Make sure that the placement of the dishwasher will be directly beside the main sink; place it according to your major hand (right-handed or left-handed) so that it is convenient for you. Do not hesitate to place the dishwasher close to the cabinets that will hold the majority of what you will be washing. Again, I am off subject, sorry, more on dishwashers later.
