3 Things to Consider When Choosing the Right Rustic Sink for Your Home

3 Things to Consider When Choosing the Right Rustic Sink for Your Home

 

When homeowners consider remodeling projects, their sinks are often overlooked. But a rustic sink can serve as an impressive design element in your home. According to Rustic Sinks, a leading online luxury designer, sinks aren't all the same, and multiple factors should be considered during the selection process.

 

While aesthetic is probably at the top of your list, you also need to think about the following three factors:

Material: When it comes to bathrooms, rustic sinks are usually created from stone or eye-catching metals like copper or bronze. Rustic kitchen sinks, on the other hand, are a bit more varied. While you can still choose copper or stone, these amenities also have stainless steel options. Stainless steel is a tough material that easily holds up against the wear and tear of dishes and food preparation. While it is a more modern material, there are still options available with a rustic vibe, so you can benefit from its durability without sacrificing design.

Use: Another element that should be factored into your decision is how the rustic sink will be used in your day-to-day life. Single sinks in the bathroom are often all that is necessary, but kitchen sinks are typically used for a wider variety of tasks. As such, double sinks are a great option, especially when doing dishes by hand.

Layout: Consider where the sink will be installed. Drop-in sinks are the most common type and require the unit to sit at the top of the cabinet. Vessel sinks are another increasingly popular design for bathrooms and sit above the countertop on their own. The varying options for sink layouts need to be part of your consideration because cabinet designs limit your options. For instance, if your bathroom vanity is designed for a drop-in sink, a vessel sink won't work with that design. 

Choosing the perfect rustic sink for your kitchen or bathroom remodel isn't always an easy task. Luckily, you can find expert guidance from the professionals at Rustic Sinks. Not only does the online retailer offer a wide selection of both bathroom and kitchen sinks, but they also offer free shipping and competitive prices on their collection of unique designs.

Do You Know How to Care For Your Copper Sink?

Do You Know How to Care For Your Copper Sink?

How to Care for Your Copper Sink

Once a tradition in farmhouses, copper sinks have become a stylish addition to any contemporary home. Not only are they easy to maintain, but unlike porcelain or stainless steel models, they also curb the growth of bacteria. Whether you already have a copper sink or are thinking about installing one, the experts from Rustic Sinks in Scottsdale, AZ, have the vital care tips you need to maintain your amenity.

Copper is a durable and enduring material that is well suited for sinks—as long as you pay attention to a few key details. For example, copper corrodes when it is exposed to acid, so be careful to avoid direct or prolonged contact with lemons, limes, tomatoes, grapefruit, and other acidic fruits. Vinegar and mustard can also negatively interact with the copper. To avoid damage, run the water when you’re rinsing acidic fruits. After exposure to acids, wash your sink thoroughly with dish soap and water, just in case. Dish soap and a soft sponge are all you need to clean your copper sink. Avoid using any type of heavily textured sponge on your sink, as copper may scratch if you are rough with it. Be gentle, and never use abrasive cleaners, even if they are intended for kitchen use. These cleaners may remove your sink’s luminous patina.

To preserve your copper sink’s patina, you can apply a quality wax about twice a year to the surface, although most owners like the natural aging of the copper patina.  We do not recommend any kind of a lacquer as this will come off with use and is much more care to take care of. With proper care, your copper will shine even more beautifully in the years to come. 

If you’re interested in upgrading your bathroom or kitchen, enlist the professionals from Rustic Sinks. The premier resource offers the rustic, farmhouse, and copper sinks you need for an enchanting, unique space. They also install beautiful claw foot tubs and fireclay sinks.
