In this article, we will give you some tips on selecting a kitchen sink. In this article we will discuss shapes.
The double equal sink like the BD-820 Tipton sink from Cygnet Stainless continues to be the most popular sink. Known in the trade as a 5050 sink (50% of the bottom surface is in each sink) the sink can be used to wash or rinse in either sink and, if you install a garbage disposal, it can be placed in either sink.
The BD-813-16L Allante, which is commonly know as a 6040 sink, comes in big bowl left or the reverse, big bowl right. The small bowl is shallower to accommodate garbage disposals. The BD813-16 design allows the larger sink to be used for washing and the smaller for rinsing. Many customers want the smaller sink with the disposal closer to the dishwasher to allow the disposal to drain more efficiently.
The BD-822-16 Rio is also available with big bowl on either the left or right. Some consumers believe the shape is more dramatic than the 6040. The large sink has more room for washing dishes, but the small sink is smaller and does not allow a twelve-inch dinner plate to lay flat. The small sink is also shallower to make drainage of garbage disposal easier.
