What possible configuration for my sink?
If you do not have enough space, opt for a sink with a single bowl or possibly a tray associated with a drip tray.
However, if you have a large family and you need to wash, rinse and drain at the same time, it will be more pleasant to have a sink with two bowls and to be able to take advantage of its accessories (drainer, cutting board ...).
What shape to choose?
Rectangular sinks are no longer alone on the market! You can also opt for sinks in various shapes and trends.
Classic rectangular sinks optimize space.
They adapt to all kitchens. Square sinks are often small and fit perfectly into small spaces.
Round sinks are less practical for doing the dishes but give a softer and more fluid appearance to your decoration.
To be highlighted, it is essential that your kitchen design is spacious because they take up a lot of workspace.
Corner sinks are generally built into a piece of furniture that meets specific characteristics.
What type of sink?
To finish with an aesthetic and practical touch, what type of sink to choose?
The sink to be installed: it is placed directly on a suitable piece of furniture or support. It must correspond exactly to the size of the furniture on which it is placed.
However, it is not as decorative as a built-in sink.
The built-in sink: the worktop is cut out and the sink is placed on top. The worktop aesthetically hides the tubs and piping.
The integrated sink: it is one with the worktop. There are no edges, seams or demarcations, which makes cleaning easier and frees up space.
