When remodeling your kitchen, it's important to choose the perfect kitchen sink. Whether you're washing dishes or enjoying a glass of water, your kitchen sink will get plenty of use. Menards® has a wide selection of stylish and functional sinks for any kitchen. This buying guide will help you find the best sink for your kitchen. Material Granite/Solid Surface Stainless Steel Granite and solid surface sinks are durable yet stylish sinks that complement a variety of kitchen decor styles and colors. These sinks are available in a variety of neutral tones like gray, brown and black. They are also made from highly dense materials that makes them resistant to scratching, heat and household chemicals. Stainless steel is the most popular material for kitchen sinks due to its easy maintenance and its resistance to heat and staining. Because of their metallic material, stainless steel sinks can complement any kitchen decor or color, plus they will not rust or tarnish. These sinks are typically low cost and available in a variety of sizes and styles. Cast Iron Acrylic Cast iron sinks are made of heavy, durable iron that is covered with a top layer of enamel for a sink that is both strong and stylish. These sinks are available in a variety of colors and feature an elegant glossy sheen. These sinks are stain resistant, and easy to clean and maintain. Acrylic sinks are a lightweight type of sink that is made of tough plastic. This material is highly resistant to staining and is available in many different colors. Acrylic is one of the least expensive sink options, and any scratches can easily be polished or sanded away. Copper Fireclay Copper is a unique sink material option that creates a dramatic focal point for your kitchen. Plus these sinks are rust resistant and antimicrobial. When choosing a copper sink, be sure to choose a sink that is at least 99% copper for the elegant copper appearance and 1% zinc to ensure the strength and integrity of your sink. Like the name implies, fireclay is made from clay that is fired at extremely high temperatures to create a strong, heavy-duty sink. These sinks are nearly impossible to dent, scratch or chip. They feature a heavy glaze so they have a nonporous surface that is easy to clean. Styles Mounting Styles Sink Styles There are several different mounting styles for your kitchen sink.
