Have you looked at the calendar? We are on the backend of summer! Last week, I ran into HomeGoods ( and there were pumpkin-theme pillows and pumpkin scented candles 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 nauseous when we started to talk specifics which he equates to 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
This is the only image of my stainless, double-overmount sink. It is an overmount sink which means it collects gunk around the edges. I think it is called an overmount.
These are the questions that flood my mind at 4:30 in the morning.
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.
I love the contrast between the white cabinets and the darker sink. Spoiler alert ahead.
However, I am a little distracted by the tschoke surrounding the kitchen sink.
Porcelain Kitchen Sink + Apron
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?
I saved one of my favorites for last. I think I love this one most of all.
Kitchen Sink Update
We recently renovated our kitchen and I added a farmhouse Kohler apron sink in a dark grey (Basalt). I love it!
And I love the corner sink.
Truthfully, I panicked a little when I saw all of the valuable real estate in the corner behind the ffucet. But I love the airy feel against the windows.
