Extra-large sinks for family kitchens

Any kitchen construction or renovation project aims to make cooking in it more enjoyable and comfortable. Therefore, whenever space allows it, it is a trend to install large kitchen sinks since they facilitate tasks like washing dishes, filling pots and pans with water, cleaning food, draining boiled food, etc. But, do large sinks have pros and cons? Next, we analyze all its aspects so that you can choose the best option for your home. 

Usual sink measurements 

Sink depth ranges from 1.47638 to 2.13255 ft, height is usually between 0.459318 and 0.984252 ft, and its standard-length ranges from 1.64042 to 4.59318 ft. And the length is precisely the factor determining whether a sink is large or not: from 2.62467 ft long, the sink is a good size. 

Are there cases when it is more convenient to give up a large sink? Yes. If the kitchen is small and, especially, it is impossible to have the necessary countertops (ideally, a kitchen should have at least 3.5 linear meters of work surface). Also, when the family is small. In all other cases, a large kitchen sink is recommended. 

Select its elements 

Even if the sink is XXL size, depending on how you work in the kitchen, you will have to decide if you want a single or double sink. A double sink will allow you to wash in one and rinse in the other. Keep in mind that kitchen sinks longer than 3.93701 ft are usually double and have a drainer. 

Color Effects 

Gray steel and white porcelain usually limit design solutions. However, there are many other resistant materials with maximum performance and a broad palette of colors, such as Silestone, a synthetic material very easy to maintain and highly resistant to lime and heat. If you want to hide the large size of the piece and visually make it smaller, opt for dark colors, even black. On the contrary, if you prefer it to stand out, opt for a large white or light-toned sink. 

Design and Style 

Since the sink is the star piece in the water area and its generous size will make it highly visible, you should take care of its appearance as much as possible. For kitchens with a more traditional air, porcelain models with a relatively high and visible front look great, as well as Silestone designs with a Suede finish and a soft and velvety texture. And in contemporary settings, sinks integrated into the countertop are undoubtedly a perfect combination, forming a single piece without joints. The Integrity line of sinks made in Silestone, with smooth designs inspired by the personality of natural stone, offers a continuous design, clean to the eye, and genuinely hygienic due to the ease of cleaning. Get to know them. They will all captivate you!
