When remodeling your kitchen, the choices are endless. Choosing new cabinets, countertops, flooring, and lighting can be fun, but overwhelming. Another small decision that needs to be made is the kitchen sink. Should you go with a stainless steel sink, or cast iron? When making decisions about your Fort Collins kitchen renovation don’t forget the sink!
Cast Iron Sinks
At one time, most sinks were made of an enamel-coated cast iron, and many people still prefer them today. Those who decide on cast iron choose it for its pretty appearance, as the enamel can be colored. Today, many cast iron sinks are are made with recycled iron, so the environmentally conscious consumer might prefer them too. However, the enamel can scratch and chip over time, especially if a person tends to not be careful about throwing things in the sink, and eventually those small imperfections can start to rust.
Stainless Steel Sinks
Stainless steel is popular in sink choices right now because it is one of the only sinks that can be under-mounted. These sinks are easy to clean, take a beating, and rust or stains can usually be scrubbed out. Some people find them noisy when washing dishes, but if that’s a concern talk to the contractor about a model that offers sound absorption. At one time people didn’t enjoy the commercial look of a stainless steel sink, but with stainless steel appliances in style, many people no longer mind its appearance.
