Make Your Dream Kitchen Part 2

Part 2 of Kitchen Remodels

In this section, we are going to talk about kitchen sinks! A new sink can be the focal part of your kitchen. There are so many different types of sinks to choose from when creating the perfect kitchen. I bet you are wondering how to choose your sink! First, you will want to decide what style of kitchen you are going for. From there you can start looking at sink styles.

A farmhouse-style sink will extend over the edge of your counter. Usually, this type of sink is used in a rustic farmhouse or traditional style. Farmhouse sinks have a deep basin perfect for larger families. Or if you are into interior design, they look beautiful! Combine style and function with a new farmhouse sink to give you that country feel in your kitchen.

If you choose an undermount sink it is installed directly under the counter. It creates a seamless look from the countertop to the sink. The wonderful thing about this type of sink is that it has a seamless sleek look and is very versatile with any kitchen design. These types of sinks make clean up easy as no food or dirt gets stuck in the lip.

If you decide to go with a stainless steel sink, they are light and easy to install. They are normally on the lower end of cost depending on the style you choose. When choosing a stainless steel sink you will want to look at the gauge. A thicker gauge means the sink will typically be heavier and cheaper, while a thinner gauge will mean the sink is lighter and often more expensive. Stainless steel sinks tend to dent and can be a bit noisier. But they have a great stain resistance.

Don’t be afraid to finance!
You still have to live and there is no reason to let a tight budget keep you from completing the projects you’ve been dreaming about. Look for home remodeling companies that offer financing programs, you can have work done on your home by a professional and get it financed at the same time. You have to consider both the immediate costs and the long-term value of your home. Remember, instead of paying a large upfront cost for these renovations, you can break payments down into smaller increments to make throughout the year. We are all credit conscience now but there are certain things that financing is a smart choice, financing a car, financing a home, and financing a home improvement project. These projects will increase the value of the home and that is always a wise investment.
