Stainless Steel Sinks
Stainless steel is the most common sink material we see in our remodels.
Stainless steel has a variety of positives when being used for a sink.
It is a very durable material that won't crack, chip, or rust.
It is easy to clean and take care of, which helps it to look like new for years.
No need to worry about a too much noise, many stainless steel sinks have sound dampening technology to absorb noise to keep things quieter while washing dishes.
There are stainless steel sinks in every shape and design and there really affordable options available.
The only real con with stainless steel is the possibility for dents and scratches over time from use.
