Sinks! Blanco? Elkay? Granite Composite vs. Quartz Composite?

4 years ago

As my remodel progresses and cabinet etc. install draws closer, I'm stressing over which sink to buy. I originally settled on the Elkay Quartz Classic Undermount Composite 33 in. Rounded Single Bowl, but the lack of grid for the unusual size discouraged me. They make a rectangular one in the same materials that has a grid and center drain but I don't know how I like that shape (I really liked the soft curves of the rounded one). I kept hearing Blanco name dropped and browsed around. I really like the rounded D shape of the Valea Undermount Granite Composite 32 in. Super Single Bowl. It does have a grid. The low star review on Homedepot discouraged me, though. Their rectangular models (both with centered and non-centered drains) have better reviews. Is the difference really just shape? Is there a real difference between the quality of Quartz Composite (Elkay) vs. Granite Composite (Blanco)? Are all of these basically the same and it comes down to style preferences? Please advise! =)
