Selecting an Outdoor Kitchen Sink Selecting an Outdoor Kitchen Sink
Outdoor kitchen sinks serve many purposes. They help keep cooking and serving areas clean and are a place to put dishes. Consider size, material, and placement before you choose an outdoor kitchen sink.
Stainless steel is the most popular kind of outdoor sink. It has resiliency that makes it low-maintenance. However, if exposed to too much moisture it may rust.
Stone is impervious to sun and rain, but you need to reseal it every year. Granite and marble sinks are stunning, but the price might stun you, too. Stone sinks are expensive and might not be a good choice if you live in a polluted area.
If you want something low-maintenance and stain-and rust-resistent, you should consider a ceramic or cast iron sink. These sinks are glazed to protect against moisture and can be glazed in a plethora of colors from the deepest cobalt blue to the palest pink. Pricing will depend upon whether the sink is mass-produced or custom-made.
Regardless of which sink you choose, having a sink in your outdoor kitchen can make entertaining al fresco much easier and more pleasant.
