Jul 9th 2015 at 11:26 PM

If you are moving into a new house or just doing a few remodels, you can design your own kitchen sink to suit your tastes and needs. The right kitchen sink should be made of the right material, should have the required number of bowls, should be properly mounted and should be within your budget. More so, the right kitchen sink should be the right size. You will actually find that a big sink isn’t necessarily better for your type of kitchen. There are a few tips that should help you choose the perfect size of sink for your kitchen. 

One way of getting a sink in the right size is to base your selection on the size of your kitchen. If your kitchen is small, install a small sink. If you go with an oversize sink, you risk overwhelming other beautiful aspects of your kitchen. A large kitchen sink will also take up the much needed counter space in your small kitchen. The right size for a small kitchen is a small single bowl kitchen sink that will allow you to accomplish your tasks but without taking up room. There’s a large selection of single bowl stainless steel kitchen sinks to choose from that work well for any small kitchen.

Secondly, you can decide on the size of sink to get based on the dimensions of the window above the sink. If you have a window with a nice view, you will most likely want to install your sink in front of it. Though your window and sink don’t need to match perfectly in width, avoid installing a sink that is a lot wider or a lot slimmer than the window above it. Thirdly, you can decide to size your sink such that it’s the focal point in your kitchen. If you choose to go with this route and get a big kitchen sink, its design and material should be very appealing.

Fourth, you might not have a choice than to go with your budget. While it’s obvious that the sink you choose should fit your budget, most home owners get caught up in wanting kitchen sinks they cannot afford. If you go into a store and see a sink that you like very much, look around and you might find it’s cheaper in other stores. You might even find the same design that comes in more affordable materials such as stainless sink. Lastly, you have to ask yourself what your needs are and install a sink that answers those needs. A quick online search of the words kitchen sinks, stainless steel, will reveal that there is a sink made for practically every need. There are many other ways for deciding on the right size of kitchen sink but these few should help you to select a sink that will work for you.
