Stainless steel sinks

We can help select the perfect sink to compliment your new stone countertop.

Choosing a Stainless Steel Sink

When selecting a stainless steel kitchen sink, consider your personal preferences, such as basin size, depth, and configuration. Opt for a basin depth of at least 7 inches, taking into account potential under-counter installation, which may add depth depending on countertop thickness.


Understanding sink gauge is crucial; it refers to the thickness of the steel, with lower gauge numbers indicating thicker steel. Aim for a gauge of 16 or 18, as thinner gauges may lack durability and resistance to damage.

We Can Help You Choose the Right Sink

Avoid promotional sinks offered for free with countertop installations, as these may be of low quality and prone to discoloration and damage. Quality stainless steel sinks contain sufficient chromium and nickel for corrosion resistance and durability.

We inspect potential sinks for proper finishing, sound deadening features, and grain orientation to ensure longevity and ease of maintenance. Consider purchasing sink strainers separately, as they are often not included and may require compatibility with U.S. plumbing standards. We can assist you in selecting a quality sink and seamlessly installing it along with your countertops, ensuring a cohesive and functional kitchen design.

Very happy with our counter tops, sink, and faucet! Installation was very professional.   Jennifer K.
