Choosing the Right Sink For Your New Countertops!

When you plan a kitchen renovation or a new kitchen build you have a lot of decisions to make. Of course, choosing the best natural stone countertops at the Lake of the Ozarks is a big decision, something that is often overlooked is which kind of sink to choose. You may be thinking that all sinks are basically the same and they serve the same purpose but this is not necessarily the case! There are many factors that go into which sink to choose including style, material, and size. Today, our countertop company at the Lake of the Ozarks would like to share with you the different options you have to make choosing your sink a breeze! 


You have options when it comes to your sink material. Your choice in the material for your sink will depend on your preferences of both durability and style. Popular sink materials include: 

Stainless Steel 
Cast Iron 

Sink Styles & Sizing 

There are a variety of sink styles to choose from. When it comes down to it, the style you choose comes down to personal preferences and how you plan to use your sink. Below are popular sink styles to consider.

Single Bowl

Single bowl sinks are just like they sound -they feature one sink. An example of a single bowl sink is the ever so popular farmhouse sink that has made its way back into kitchen design. A benefit to this sink style is they come in a variety of sizes from large to small. So whether you are looking for an oversized sink or something more compact, a single bowl sink is a great choice. 

Double Bowl

A double bowl sink features two sinks. The two sink bowls can be the same size or they can be two different sizes. The double bowl sink is pretty standard and the most popular design. 

Sink Mounting Options 

After you choose your material and sink style, next up is deciding how you want your sink mounted. There is not a lot of difference when it comes to the function of your sink when choosing how to mount your sink. However, it does play a big part in how your sink will look with your countertops at the Lake of the Ozarks

Top Mount 

A top mount sink sits on top of your counter. A top mount sink will feature a lip that goes all the way around to the tops of your counter. 

Under Mount 

For a clean and modern look, under mount sinks are a top choice. Under mount sinks are mounted underneath your countertops and provide a seamless look without showing the lip.


You may not be super familiar with an integral sink mount but these sinks are absolutely stunning! An integral sink is when you use the same material as your countertop for your sink. Granite is a popular choice for an integral sink. This look is sleek and will add a unique feature to your kitchen! 

You probably hadn't considered all the options you had for kitchen sinks! Choosing the right sink comes down to personal preference but you shouldn't overlook your sink selection. Metro Marble & Granite offers both natural stone countertops at the Lake of the Ozarks and quartz. We also carry sinks too!
