How to shop for Sinks
The modern sink is composed of a bowl that can serve multiple functions. Either hand or dishwashing can be performed. The other components are faucets or taps that provide hot and cold water.
A spray function may be found in a kitchen or commercial installations to aid faster rinsing. A hole at the bottom of the sink allows wastewater to be removed. The drain may have a strainer to help prevent clogging by waste particles or a garbage disposal unit may also be fitted.
Some sinks such as those found in restaurants or cafes may have a soap dispenser fitted to aid hygienic practices. Westside Wholesale offers a range of sinks to our customers to meet their particular needs.
When shopping for a sink the following factors should be considered.
- Sink type. Sinks come in a range of styles. The self-rimming or top mount sink is positioned in a hole cut to accommodate it. Clamping the sink from underneath creates a close seal between the sink and worktop. Alternatively, the bottom-mount or under mount sink is fitted from below; clamping is again done from below.
- Material. Given the near constant contact with water a sink must be designed with rust and corrosion prevention in mind. Metallic materials such as stainless steel, copper and nickel have proved to be popular with manufactures. Steel or iron may also feature a coating of enamel to prevent corrosion and to improve appearance. Those with large budgets may choose marble, stone or granite. These materials can add a classic or rustic nature to the sink.
- Style. For a modern look, materials to opt for include glass and concrete. Current trends favor these materials as they create a fresh vibe and are often found in fashionable restaurants, bars or clubs.
