Kitchen sinks – our pick of the best

10 images

Along with the cooker and fridge, the sink is at the heart of any kitchen. It needs to be practical and suitable for your own particular needs. If you have a dishwasher, for instance, you may only need a single-bowl design if you’re rinsing, rather than doing lots of washing up by hand. If you don’t have a dishwasher, you may prefer to go for a larger, double-bowl variety that can cope with all manner of pots and pans. Think about how the material you choose for your sink will fit with the overall style of your kitchen. From super-shiny, ever-practical stainless steel to classic white fireclay and composite designs in jet black or gunmetal grey, each material has its own distinctive look. This pick of some of our favourites will help you decide what’s right for you.
