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 process:
- 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 dishwasher?
- 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 clean up – the versatility of the double well 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.
