The Best Sinks For Your Kitchen

Kitchen tap

Sinks are an integral part of any functioning kitchen. If you haven’t looked at buying one before, the choices might overwhelm you. Saxon Laminates can help find the right basin for your kitchen.

Inset Or Undermount Sinks?

These terms refer to how a basin is fitted into the countertop. Inset means that the bowl slots into the worktop, and it usually has a visible rim around the edge. And undermount basin is one that is designed to sit flush with a countertop for a more seamless finish.

How Many Bowls?

Some basins come with more than one bowl, with 1.5 being a popular choice for many households. The smaller, half-size basin is useful for when the main bowl is already full and you need to rinse a plate or drain some pasta water, for example. There are a range of options that are available.

Sinks: What Material Is Best?

There are a few materials to choose from when it comes to sinks. Each material will react differently to heat and scratches. How durable they are and how much maintenance they need is also dependent on the material. Your choice may be dictated by the look and price of a basin.

There are many types to decide from, from resin to quartz. At Saxon Laminates, we offer the following:

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is still the most popular choice in many households. Due to its affordability, many favour this type of basin. It is resistant to heat and stains, making it easy to maintain. The material comes in a range of styles, with the choice of a built-in draining board if required.  

Stainless Steel Sink


Composite sinks are a blend of strong materials, usually including quartz. Households may prefer this material because of its scratch resistance. For its quality and durability, this material is a sought-after choice.


Like stainless steel and composite, ceramic is also heat resistant. This basin is tough against scratches and stains. For a timeless look, opt for a ceramic bowl. They come in a range of shapes and styles, so you can find one that complements your home.

Ceramic Sink


Acrylic sinks are also available in many sizes, because the plastic can be moulded into any shape. They are durable and stain-resistant, so are great for many kitchens. They are also really simple to fix if any scratches did occur.
