Stainless Steel Kitchen Sinks

This is definitely the most common kitchen sink material out there. Stainless steel sinks appear in many homes and businesses across the world, as they are easy to clean and maintain. Better yet, they are quite inexpensive compared to other sinks on this list. Stainless steel sinks can range in price and style, starting at very cheap and basic to expensive and professional.

While a stainless steel kitchen sink might look most at home in an industrial style kitchen or a professional kitchen, they can be found in any style of kitchen. From modern to traditional to everything in between, there is no kitchen that a stainless steel sink won’t belong in.

When you’re buying a stainless steel kitchen sink, you’ll want to be aware of the thickness (or gauge) of the metal it’s made of. Lower gauges mean thicker metals, while higher gauges mean thinner metals. Thinner metals will be less expensive, but have less strength and are more prone to scratching and denting. Thicker metals are less vulnerable to damage and mute noise more but are more expensive. You should also look for a stainless steel sink that has a rubber coating on the underside of the sink, as this will help to reduce the noisiness of your sink.
