When looking for a perfect copper kitchen sink for your home,
it’s important to keep a few factors in mind as you determine your needs. Depending
on your selection, the functionality of your new sink can provide a smooth kitchen
experience, or add more stress to your daily activities if the sink is chosen
incorrectly. Here are a few questions to guide you through your decision-making
How busy is your kitchen is on a day-to-day basis?
Do you do dishes mostly by hand, or do you heavily rely on the
Do you ever soak dishes before cleaning them by hand?
What’s the size of your countertops and the dishwashing area?
Are you having your kitchen cabinets custom built, or are
you installing your sink into already existing cabinets?
Depending on your dishwashing habits and the available countertop
space, your ideal kitchen situation may include a copper sink with a single,
double, or even triple well split. At Copper Sinks Online, we offer a variety
of sinks for kitchens of any size. Over the years, we have guided thousands of
people towards finding the optimal copper kitchen sink for any situation.
Single Well Copper Kitchen Sink
A kitchen sink with a single well is ideal for smaller
spaces or for kitchens that don’t usually experience a lot of traffic. This is
also a good option if you’re looking to open up more counter space for other
uses. A single well copper sink will be suitable even in a larger kitchen,
especially when combined with an additional bar or prep sink for added
functionality. At Copper Sinks Online, we offer single well kitchen sinks
ranging from 30 to 36 inches in width, and bar/prep sinks starting at 22
inches. Shown to the left: our 33" Single Well Copper Standard Kitchen Sink with a drop-in installation.
Double Well Copper Kitchen Sink
The most versatile design for a kitchen sink, the double
well model is useful for a variety of kitchen situations (Medium Double Well Copper Sink with 60/40 well split with undermount installation is shown to the right). Whether you cook only
occasionally or love entertaining large parties at your home, a copper sink
with a double well split can accommodate all of your needs. Soak dirty dishes
in one well while rinsing them off in the other; attach a garbage disposer to
one of the wells for easy cleanup – the versatility of the double well split
sinks makes dishwashing a breeze. We offer copper sinks with 50/50 or 60/40
well splits, from 33 to 42 inches in width. Custom orders for sinks with 40/60,
70/30 well splits, etc., are also welcome.
Triple Well Copper Kitchen Sink
For larger kitchens in busy households, kitchen sinks with
three wells may be extra useful. We offer a generously sized 42-inch copper
sink that features a narrow middle well ideal for silverware, utensils, flat baking
trays, etc., and two equally sized wells on each side of the sink. (Our Jumbo Triple Well Copper Farmhouse Sink is shown to the left.) Custom split
arrangements can be built upon request.
Standard or Farmhouse Front?
When selecting your kitchen sink, another important point to
keep in mind is whether you’d like to reveal its front (farmhouse installation)
or keep the front of the sink hidden inside of your cabinets (standard
installation). While standard kitchen sinks are perfectly functional and
attractive, farmhouse copper sinks offer a dramatic look thanks to their
exposed apron. At Copper Sinks Online, we offer a variety of copper farmhouse
sinks with gorgeous hand-hammered designs on their aprons. Our farmhouse sinks
are available in single, double and triple well configurations to fit any
kitchen style and budget. (Shown to the right: our Single Well Copper Farmhouse Sink with Two-Tone Scroll Design.)
Keep in mind that when installing a copper farmhouse
sink into already existing cabinetry, it’s best to consult us on the exact
proportions of your cabinets to make sure your sink fits correctly. If you’re having
brand-new cabinets installed, a good rule is to have the sink ready before the
cabinets are built.
Whichever configuration you select for your copper kitchen
sink, at Copper Sinks Online we offer a variety of sinks with single, double
and triple well splits, in standard and farmhouse configurations. Have something
unique in mind? Email us or give us a call, and we’ll be happy to assist you in finding
that perfect copper sink for your kitchen!
