Granite sinks vs. Stainless Steel sinks

The battle between buying a granite or stainless steal sink.

When beginning to shop for a stainless steel sink or a granite sink which should it be you may ask yourself? There are many fantastic and bad quality features to each type of sink. For example, granite is very dependable & durable because it comes from one large piece of stone. Every piece of stone is a unique look and is different from the next. Granite also doesn’t stain easily and of course is heat-resistant. For a long time people have been skeptical about putting granite in their kitchens cause of their fragility. But “If you know how to care for your stone sink, it will last for a hundred years.”

Stainless steel sinks on the other hand have been around for ages. We all know how durable steel sinks are and how easy they are to clean up. Stainless Steel nicely blends with many color kitchens and are affordable for everyone’s budget. Stainless steel sinks don’t chip, stain, or tarnish. Just like granite sinks they are also heat resistant. Some of the defaults are that they scratch & get dull over time and of course are only available in one color. Granite kitchen sinks also have their flaws and one biggie is they can crack and expensive to replace. Weigh in your pro’s and con’s and I know you’ll make the right decision for yourself.

Some questions to ask yourself before purchasing any type of sink is:
• Do you want a sink with a single, double or even triple bowl?
• Do you want a sink that has a soap dispenser, or a hot water dispenser, or a
filtered water dispenser?
• How do you plan to mount your sink: top mount or under mount
• Do you want a sink that is built in to your counter top?
• How deep do you need your sink to be?
• Do you want something custom?
