Kitchen Sink Advice - Stainless Steel, Single-Bowl

12 years ago

We currently have a double basin top-mount sink that measures 33"x22" (standard). The person that will be coming out to measure for our counters said we shouldn�t get a sink any bigger than that.

The new sink will be put in a standard-sized sink cabinet that is 36" wide and 24" deep (Kraftmaid). We are doing an under-mount sink and stainless steel. We would like to have a single basin and maximize the size of the sink.

We are replacing the counters with granite (Uba Tuba). We are doing small tiles for the backsplash, which will extend up to the window above the sink and form the window (so there will not be something hanging out to form the ledge (like a piece of granite or wood for the sill). Our faucet is a pull-down with separate lever and soap dispenser (3 separate holes).

Since we want to maximize the size of our sink, what would be an ideal size? Does the gauge really matter (we keep seeing 16 or 18)? Would you please share specific brands/models you went with? Do you have any pictures you could share?

Thank you so much for anything you can offer!
