Stainless Steel

The stainless steel sink is the most popular sink in the U.S. as it is very cost-effective and comes in a wide array of shapes and sizes. Opt for one with a brushed or satin finish as it will be less likely to scratch or show water marks like a mirror finish would. Models with sound absorbing pads are also available to make this sink less noisy.

Composite Granite

A nice upgrade from stainless steel would be the composite granite model. These sinks do not show any water stains or scratches so if you’re looking to hide imperfections, this is the sink for you. They come in a variety of different neutral hues (perfect for hiding stains) which is ideal for those who want a low maintenance sink.

Fireclay

Depending on the style of your kitchen, you may want a quality white sink to match your cabinets. Fireclay sinks are more durable than composite granite as they will almost never crack, chip, or scratch. This is because the clay it is made from is fired at extremely high temperatures to help create an amazingly durable kitchen sink.
