The change of the time is very influential on various things, including the household and its furniture. A home trend that is currently being favored is minimalist. With a minimalist design, all parts of the home, including the kitchen, should be minimalist as well. The kitchen furniture and equipment such as the countertop, stove, cabinet, and even the sink should be simple and practical. In a sink, the faucet is usually fused with the basin so that activities like washing dishes, pans, pots, and foodstuff become easier. For the sink, there are various designs available. If you are planning to buy a new sink for your kitchen, there are some important things you need to know, i.e. the type of the installation and the depth.
Regarding the depth, there are several sizes that you can choose. But, the one that is commonly used is a sink with 20 cm depth. When choosing the depth of the sink, you should adjust it to your kitchen size.
If you have a minimalist kitchen, you should choose a small-sized sink. For a large kitchen, a deeper sink can be a great option. If you use a deeper sink, splashes of water that come out will be less.
Regarding the type of the installation, there are several types of sink installations, i.e. under mount, flush mount, module, and inset. Flush mount is a sink installation from above. Meanwhile, under mount uses an installation technique from the bottom so that the edge of the basin won’t be visible. If the sink is installed with an inset technique, the sink is connected to the kitchen counter and its surface is parallel to the kitchen counter. For the module type of installation, the front part of the basin is made jutting, exceeding the thickness of the counter. Out of these types of sink designs and installations, you can choose the one that suits your needs the most. Besides that, you also need to consider the material used for the sink. There are sinks made of ceramic, stainless steel, silgranit, acrylic, porcelain enamel, composite, and natural stones such as marble and granite.
