Maybe the sink is not the first thing you’ll necessarily think of when building your home bar or renovating your current one, the bar sink is a very important addition to any room and likely something you will use every day. Being that there is such a broad spectrum of choices available on the market, it may take a bit of effort to get everything right. But just keep the following questions in mind before you start shopping, you will get it done.
1. Why would you want a prep or bar sink?
2. What material is going to best suit your needs? (Don’t worry, we go into detail on this later.)
3. In what way would you want the sink to be mounted? (We’ll cover this in a more in-depth way as well)
What are some of the best things about bar sinks? You can install your garbage disposal under them, many manufacturers offer convenient accessories such as sink baskets and cutting board covers, and they can be placed nearly anywhere in the kitchen, making the functionality of your kitchen even more easy for you.
Some other things you need to consider: What kind of sink you should choose, below are three styles:
The basins, It is important to find the right kind of sink to suit your needs. Because it will ideally be in your home for many years, you will want to make sure you choose something that is both pleasant and practical.
The Self-rimming: Also known as drop-in and over-mounted sinks. These sit within holes of the appropriate shape cut into the top of your counter or base material. Once a hole has been cut to allow the sink to be placed within it, the rim forms a close seal with the surface. Very easy to install and tends to work well with most countertops/surfaces.
The under mount kind: With these sinks, the edge of the countertop material is exposed and finished to flow seamlessly into the sink beneath it with the aid of a waterproof sealant. This is a very contemporary style that makes wiping things into the sink from the counter a breeze. Some of these models may offer matching covers that will essentially turn them into even more counter space while not in use.
Have you decided what is your need now? I hope so.
