Re: Kitchen sink help


Typically a sink will be dimensioned to include the flange, e.g. a 33x19 sink will have a bowl that's actually 31" wide and 17" deep (horizontally). However, a sink will also typically provide you the bowl dimensions.

Download the product data sheet for the sink. You will get all the dimensions including the under the counter profile to show setback from the wall that is provided. I have done this for more than a dozen hand and kitchen sinks prior to ordering them.

With stainless steel kitchen sinks they are usually made in two different gauges and the "commercial" ones will use thicker gauge steel and is well worth the extra expense to avoid problems with dings and dents in the future.

Re: Kitchen sink help


I'm a big fan of the silgranit sinks if you're doing undermount. We have a Blanco single bowl sink in our kitchen. My wife thought she needed cast iron, however because of the cost of cast iron and the incredible surveys of silgranit we tried it. She keeps on raving about this sink since we've had it for a year.

Re: Kitchen sink help


I would never go with something like silgranite for a kitchen sink where replacement is going to be extremely expensive. As per the manufacturer:
Resistant to scratches, stains and all household acids and alkali solutions

Keyword is "resistant" and my sister-in-law put in one of these sinks and now has to be careful about which cleaners she uses. No such worries with stainless steel, though it is important to buy the heavier gauge stainless as the thin gauge ones can dent.
