What do kitchen sinks cost?


Kitchen sinks are no longer just a utilitarian tool in the kitchen, they have become a stylish focal point in kitchens over the years. Not only do they need to be functional, but they can elevate the design of your kitchen.

When renovating or building your home, the most common question asked is "how much will it cost?" We understand costs can build up (and often quite quickly!), the budget is one of the first considerations when undertaking a renovation.

Besides the cost, there are many options to consider when choosing your sink which include what is the overall design of your kitchen, what type of sink will suit this? What size do you need, a single bowl or double bowl, what material the sink is made of, installation style, brands and which accessories are available which will make your kitchen sink as functional as possible.

In this article we will go through the cost considerations when purchasing a kitchen sink.

How much does a stainless-steel sink cost?

Stainless steel is one of the most affordable sink materials on the market. They are very durable and easy to clean. Stainless steel does not break though it can tend to dent as they are light weight and have drainer options to either side of the sink. You can also find different metal finishes (such as gold, brass, copper, bronze, gunmetal).

Due to the nature of stainless steel can be noisy, scratches easily, shows water marks, requires regular polishing to keep clean.

The cost of stainless steel sinks can vary depending on size, style and quality. They start from $70 and can cost up to $3,000.
