Types of kitchen sinks:

Materials: ~Stainless Steel: stainless steel sinks are durable, low-maintenance, heat- and stain-resistant, affordable, and impervious to chipping and cracking depending on the gauge. This is a sleek and most common type of sink.
~Cast Iron: Cast iron sinks are made of durable iron alloy and add a porcelain enamel coating, fired at a very high temperature, which gives the sink that signature smooth, glossy surface.
~Composite: Composite sinks are a composition of various highly durable materials such as granite resin, quartz and heavy plastic dusts. These. Do. Not. Scratch. I’m telling you they are amazing.
~Fireclay: A fireclay sink is a type of ceramic sink. These sinks are not carved; they are molded at extreme temperatures. The process of molding starts when clay is formed into the desired size and shape of the sink, which then dries under a mild level of heat for up to 2 days. This is a very classic, clean look and what I imagine to be the old classic farmhouse style sink.
Every detail matters.
It’s amazing how much is out there to choose from in order to find something that fits your exact needs and personality. Even something such as a sink. It’s those little details that I remember throughout my life; using the special drinking faucet for water at my grandparents, opening my kitchen window to use our freakishly long faucet hose to spray friends walking below during water fights or simply the countless hours I currently stand at my sink doing dishes while my kids run around behind me.
