Our wonderful counters had arrived!
In case you missed Monday’s post, you can check out the beautiful counters here.
We needed a kitchen sink. Like anything else in a renovation, there are so many choices!
After a bit of searching at all the usual stores, we found our winner at Home Depot.
Here are some things we considered when looking at kitchen sink options:
We had picked a stainless steel sink during our Cincinnati kitchen renovation, and we ended up not like it. It got scratched up so quickly.
Going along with our all white kitchen theme this time, we wanted a white kitchen sink.
What color is your kitchen sink? Do you like it?
Number of basins
I’m a firm believer in a double sink. What about you?
A friend renovated her kitchen just before we did, and she installed a beautiful farmhouse sink. It looked great, but I know it’s not practical for how we live.
I’d like to pretend we wash dishes and dry them right away so nothing is ever out in our kitchen. But we don’t. Well Kalen usually does, I don’t. After I wash dishes, I like plopping them in a nice drying rack sitting in the other sink basin.
So I was set on a double basin.
And I wanted the basins equal size. I don’t like the uneven ones – not enough room for a drying rack!
Speaking of washing dishes, a deep kitchen sink (8-10 inches) is a must. I love having enough room to wash big pots or cutting boards without worrying about splashing water all over.
We had an overmount sink in our original kitchen in Cincinnati, and we hated it. It was so hard to keep clean. No matter how much we cleaned, it always felt like there was grime where the sink met the counter.
So we were set on an undermount sink here.
Garbage disposal button
A garbage disposal is a must! My first apartment after college didn’t have one – and never again. We bought our garbage disposal at Lowe’s.
We had a button built into the counter in our Cincinnati renovation, and we loved it.
We found a silver garbage disposal button we could build right into the counter and bought it for this kitchen.
And I love our faucet we picked out – more on that later this week!
