Stone sinks made of composite stones such as quartz, granite or slate have a matte finish and do not scratch easily. To verify if a stone sink is really made of such materials, buyers should subject the sink to a test by trying to scratch with a paper clip. Such sinks should be totally resistant to these kinds scratches.
The installation of a bottom mount ceramic kitchen sink however would be somewhat more difficult. In this situation the countertop material will be making the lip to the sink itself, thus the cut and finish need to be very accurate and tidy. Unfortunately, no matter how accurate, a small difference between sink opening and countertop material is always going to exists, and a flush and exact match is close to impossible, thus leaving a lip or small overhang is preferable, otherwise a good helping of silicone needs to be applied, somewhat retracting from the otherwise unique and classy finish.
It is only recently that homeowners have started using the bowl sink in kitchens. The bowl sink can help showcase your unusual and special sense of style to the people who visit your home.
Copper has natural antibacterial properties. It will prevent the germs from developing in the sink. Some copper sinks have coatings which totally remove the natural antibacterial properties of copper, so it is advisable to go for a non coated copper sink for the sink to be germ free. Moreover the coating or the plating will eventually wear off. Natural colouration of copper is feasible but ageing improves the appearance of copper. Copper apron sinks that are mainly used in farmhouses can be made more feasible if you give a fire and ice finish on the apron.
