Posted by Krista Payne on Oct 31, 2011 1:23:40 PM

Are you in the middle of a kitchen remodel or in the stages of building a new house? Consider purchasing custom stainless steel kitchen sinks or copper kitchen sinks to get the most out of your investment. Some of the options to think about when choosing a sink is the type of material, depth and width size, double or single bowl options, undermount, overmount or apron style, drain placement, and types of things you use the sink for (washing, food prep etc). Some of our clients who are chefs prefer the large single bowl sink which allows for large pots and pans while others like the dual work load the double bowl allows. Soaking lettuces or peeling vegetables in one bowl and washing dishes in the other bowl. Depending on how much cooking you do is always a good determination on size and options. Although some non cooking types just like the look of a large farmhouse sink. There are many options you can add to a custom sink to ensure the sink is as individual as you are. Taking note on what you use your current sink for will really help you decide what is best for you.

Big box improvement stores sell a limited amount of sinks and getting the options you need may be hard to find especially when you are looking at non standard size sinks. You may have to choose something that does not fit all your needs and requirements whereas buying custom ensures you get exactly what you want. The largest difference that you will notice when you buy an assembly line manufactured sink compared to a custom hand made sink from Diamond Spas is the finish and the quality.
