Have you looked at the calendar? We are on the backend of summer!Last week, I ran into HomeGoods (I capitalized the G) and there were pumpkin theme pillows on the shelves.
I like to plan DIY projects for late August, so when my husband and I return to Colorado after dropping our boys off at college, I have a distraction. My kitchen remodel includes new cabinets, appliances and counters. Oh, and an expanded island. My husband looked a little nautious when we started talking specifics (money). I suggested he focus on sinks. Because, you cannot have a kitchen without a sink. I pointed him in the right direction by finding 5 kitchen sink ideas.
5 Kitchen Sinks Ideas before Thanksgiving
This is the only image of my stainless, double overmount sink. It is an overmount sink which means it collects gunk around the edges. Ithink it is called an overmount. These are the questions that flood my mind during the day.
I shared a post about how to keep the kitchen sink pretty a few weeks ago. I never shared a photo of my kitchen sink. That post got me thinking about what I want in a kitchen sink.
Kitchen Sink Envy on Pinterest
Before I remove the kitchen island I want to share a few kitchen sink ideas to manage my kitchen sink envy. The first two kitchens below reflect what I want in my new kitchen; white cabinets, clean counters and darker cabinets for the kitchen island.
This stainless steel apron sink would be a definite upgrade to my sink. How do we feel ladies and guys about a dual sink versus one large sink? Please weigh in below in the comments.
Here is a second kitchen with white cabinets. This kitchen includes a stainless, under-mount, dual sink. Can someone explain to me the advantage to a single oversized sink? My sink habits include dirty dishes in one half of the sink and the other side of the sink is reserved for hand washing. #hashtagsuburbanmomprobs
Moving on, what do you think of the darker sink? i can’t tell if it’s aged copper. Either way, I love the contrast between the white cabinets and the darker sink.
However, I am a little distracted by the tschoke surrounding the kitchen sink. And, dear Lord please don’t let this be a blog friend’s sink!
Porcelain Kitchen Sink Envy
Okay, this kitchen has white counters and dark cabinets. I love the brass lights and cabinet hardware. Who has a porcelain sink? Be honest, what are the drawbacks? Does it chip? And, that’s not a deal breaker if there is some kind of epoxy strength fix.
I like the idea of an apron on the front. The kitchen cabinet below my kitchen sink is filthy. The cabinet’s crevices are the catch-all for coffee grounds and bacon grease. Eww! A kitchen sink apron would solve that problem.
Finally, I had to share a copper kitchen sink I found on Wayfair. Personally, I think a copper sink is too fancy for my cooking skills. Where do you weigh in on a copper kitchen sink?
