Sink Styles That Will Last in a Busy Kitchen

The heart of the modern American home, the kitchen is almost always a hub of activity. Slicing, dicing, mincing, washing, drying, braising, baking — the kitchen sees an almost endless stream of activity each day. This is why, as long-time countertop experts, we often remind our customers to choose a kitchen counter material that can stand up to the kind of activity that goes on in their kitchen on a regular basis. It is also important to make sure the kitchen sink you install can deliver the kind of performance required in a busy kitchen.

Stainless Steel Sinks

Offering an excellent stain-resistant surface, a stainless steel sink also stands up well to heat. It is a highly resilient material because it can withstand abrasions and heavy impacts. It also works well with a variety of kitchen decors and countertop designs.

Solid Surface Sink

For a seamless look and an ultra-modern feel, solid surface sinks work well since they can be matched with countertops made from the same material. However, dropping even a light object (such as a knife) can damage its surface. It is also not as heat-resistant as a stainless steel surface.

Enamel Sinks

Enamel-coated steel or enamel-coated cast iron sinks typically cost less and come in a variety of colors. This makes them an excellent choice for homeowners and designers who want to create a specific and unique look. They are also a breeze to clean and maintain. Enamel surfaces do, however, stain easily and can chip or crack when a heavy or sharp object is dropped on them. The metal underneath a damaged enamel surface can rust if the damage is not properly and immediately repaired.

Acrylic Sinks

Although this type of sink looks and feels like enamel, an acrylic sink is not as durable as an enamel surface. It is not scratch- or stain-resistant, nor does it stand up well to heat. It can be easily damaged when a heavy object hits its surface.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
