(Musings of a Stone Designer)

Decaf or regular?...paper or plastic?...dvd or blu-ray?
It seems every part of our day involves making a choice.  Updating your kitchen is no exception. 

For quite a while now, American homes have come equipped with a kitchen sink. Not really any decision involved...
   "Do you want a sink in your kitchen?"

Compliments of

At the very beginning, it was most likely a stone sink.  Little by little, choices were inserted into the process.  Do you want a cast iron or stainless steel sink?  How about porcelain, gem stone, granite composite, or pounded copper?  Maybe concrete, recycled glass, solid surface or fireclay.

After selecting your material, next you must decide size, number of bowls, and shape.  Will it be a top mount, an undermount, an apron front, or a vessel?  What kind of finish, what color?  How many sinks do you want in your kitchen?

How does one decide?
Let's answer this question using the Socratic method: ask more questions:
What kind of sink has worked?
What kind of sink has passed the test of time?
What kind of sink is most functional?
What kind of sink is solid, natural, timeless, beautiful?

The answer to all these questions...a soapstone sink.
My opinion may be biased, since...
1) I'm in the stone business,
2) I'm married to a stone fabricator, and
3) I'm currently infatuated with the last several soapstone sinks we've fabricated and installed for our customers

Just take a look:
