The kitchen is considered the heart of the home. Although its function is not as private as what a bathroom gives or as universally accommodating as that of a living room, it is a place that keeps everybody inside the house well and healthy. That’s because the kitchen is the only part of the house where meals are cooked and dishes are cleaned. A corner kitchen sink in particular puts up a vital kitchen function before and after every action.
Going deeper into the kitchen, unearthing the heart of the area, lays the kitchen sink – where food is prepared and leftovers are handled. Unfortunately, it is also an essential kitchen part many homeowners pay less attention to. The corner kitchen sink could spell disaster if left neglected. It can totally ruin your kitchen hours and sabotage your cooking.
Here are a few tips on how to avoid a corner kitchen sink sabotage, which starts in buying:
Sturdy Corner Kitchen Sink
The first important thing to consider before anything else is to check the sturdiness of the sink. If the corner kitchen sink is made from good quality materials then its service should last for about 2-3 years.
To identify a cheap branded sink, make a quick physical examination by lightly pressing – using any of your fingers – the sink’s surface. Cheap sinks are often made from thin metal material. You’ll know if it’s thin or is bad in quality if the sink produces a noisy vibration during or after you have pressed it.
Mirror Finishing can be a Nightmare
Yes. A corner kitchen sink with a bright mirror finish may look shiny and attractive at first but it can also bring real nightmares, especially if you’re an aesthetic type of person.
The preference for a sink with mirror finishing will still depend, ultimately, on your taste. If you’re the type of person who can bear the sight of water spots and scratches then there’s really no reason for you to hold back. A mirror finishing looks futuristic anyway.
But if you’re the type of person who equally values beauty and quality, then this may not be the best corner sink for you. Dents and scratches will become obvious, and water spots are bound to appear. As a homeowner who takes aesthetics seriously, this is not something you’d want.
Watch Out for Acrylic and Fiberglass Sinks
Why? Again, this will all depend on your preference. At first glance acrylic and fiberglass sinks may look elegant and expensive, but these materials absorb stains and discolor fast. They can look really dirty in just one year. So you may want to think twice before you buy a sink made from this material.
