Sinks & Taps
There are a number of factors to consider when choosing your kitchen sink; functionality is just as important as design, and here is a short guide to the initial decisions you will need to make before choosing the right model for you and your kitchen.
Inset sinks are mounted from above, and the edge of the sink sits on top of the worktop. This is the most standard type of installation and can be used with all worktop types, including laminate worktops. Inset sinks generally have a drainer board and are available in a wide range of styles and materials to suit your preference.
When your worktop is made from a solid-surface material, such as granite, solid wood or engineered stone, you have the option of choosing an undermounted sink. This style is installed from beneath the worksurface and allows for a clean minimalist look to the kitchen. Drainer grooves are often cut into the worksurface to complete the elegant look.
Belfast sinks are often selected to give a more traditional, farmhouse feel to your kitchen. This style of sink is manufactured from fine-fireclay and is usually installed by sitting it on top of a custom-made cabinet.
