Types of Stainless Steel Sinks: Shape & Finish Options
Once you’ve decided that a stainless steel sink is the right option for your project, it’s time to consider the various types of stainless steel sinks available. Which shape and finish will work best for your purposes and your space? Here are a few things you should know:
- Shape – Stainless steel sinks can be found in virtually every shape imaginable, from square to D-shaped to rectangular. When shopping for a sink, be sure to note the corner shape as well:
- Finish – When it comes to sink finish, the best choice will mainly depend on what kind of appearance you prefer. Lustrous without being overly glossy, a satin finish is the most popular option for stainless steel sinks. If you enjoy extra shine, you might select a mirror finish instead. There are also brushed, matte and textured finishes available for some sinks.
Caring for Stainless Steel Sinks
It’s very easy to care for and maintain stainless steel sinks. Stainless steel only needs to be wiped down regularly with dish soap and water. Smudges and streaks can be easily buffed out with a microfiber towel. Just avoid using steel wool or abrasive scrubbers, which may scratch the sink.
