If you're wanting to change your sink design, you first have to identify the function your sink serves. Several companies including Elkay have introduced multi-functional sinks that offer accessories like cutting boards, and stainless steel collanders and silverware baskets for cooks who use their sinks for a variety of tasks and want easy clean-up.
The standard double sink was originally designed so that it was easy to wash dishes on one side and rinse them on the other side. Some cooks are now opting for a larger and more interesting single sink since they mainly use it for rinsing dishes when loading the dishwasher.
A lot of cooks still prefer traditional ceramic sinks because of their elegant look and affordability. The one pictured offers a large sink deep enough for washing pots and pans; a small sink/disposal area; and a large working space for cleaning and slicing produce, or draining dishes. The ceramic surface is very durable and heat-resistant., allowing for easy clean-up. Pots and casseroles can be removed from the stove or oven and placed directly in the sink.
Finally, for those of you who make a conscious effort to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible, Moody offers a unique and functional aquarium sink. It provides filtration and oxygenation for your fish with a side entry for feeding them. While it may not be heat-resistant or offer a lot of room for prepping vegetables or washing dishes, it is very entertaining.

If you are like me, I avoid having to look far into the back of my sink base cabinet. You just don't know what lingers there... a possible slow leak or grimy spill from dish soap.

Unique and rare are two words that came to mind when I read about these sinks. They look stunning next to the granite countertops pictured here.
The jewel like tones and unique glimmering traits of glass are now available in the kitchen thanks to new Hard Roc glass kitchen sinks by JSG Oceana. The company claims their sinks are to be the first of their kind on the market.
A unique formulation of borosilicate glass makes Hard Roc glass thermal shock resistant, stain and scratch resistant, hygienic, non-porous, and easy to clean. The sinks are available in under-mount and drop-in installations in a variety of luminescent colors and designs.

A copper kitchen sink is a great way to add old world charm to a new world kitchen. Typically they are used in country themed kitchens, but the copper kitchen sink can be used in almost any modern kitchen.
There are some real advantages over a regular kitchen sink. Copper is naturally antibacterial. Bacteria and germs can only live on the surface of copper a couple hours. That's pretty amazing compared to the days it can live on a regular kitchen sink surface.
The common copper kitchen sink designs are drop in, under mounted and farmhouse/apron style. Drop in and under mounted copper kitchen sinks feature a rim around the top of the sink, this allows them be mounted under your countertop. However, copper farmhouse sinks, also known as apron sinks, feature a front apron panel that actually is made to stick out past the front of your cabinets, exposing the front part of the sink. Not only does this provide greater functionality for the copper kitchen sink but also adds to the visual aesthetic of your kitchen.
Copper kitchen sinks are a great investment for any remodeled kitchen. Let us know what you think about using copper in your kitchen!
