Stainless steel sinks are considered as the best choice for sinks. They can be cleaned easily and are meant to last a long time without corrosion. Additionally, they are durable as they are meant to stay clean without cracks and stains for a long time. Stainless steel sinks are used by many companies, and Elkay continues innovating and remodeling their stainless steel sinks to become better. Despite being relatively lighter in weight, stainless steel sinks are known to be reliable and dependable.

Quartz sinks mostly uphold an aesthetic value which can make your kitchen sink one of the most stylish things in your home. These are very strong and heavy materials that are built to last. They can take much more wear and tear than most materials and still emerge gracefully and entirely intact.

Copper is known to be a metal that can provide a very rustic look to its surrounding. It is a soft metal that can be designed whichever way is needed. It is mostly used with zinc to give it some more resistance. The material can be recycled if needed and painted or polished over time.

Fireclay is a ceramic that is often used to make sinks. It is very hard and can be long-lasting if made correctly. The material is not porous which is important for sinks and does not get any marks or scratches by use. It resists alkaline and acidic materials as well.

Some of the styles available in Elkay sinks include undermount, top mount, universal or dual mount, apron front, corner, vessel, floor and wall sinks. These styles differ in the way or manner they have been installed on the countertop. Undermounts sinks are installed from beneath the counter and are entirely hidden under the countertop with an area for the hole to show. Top mount is installed from on top of the countertop with a part of the sink overlapping it so you can see the sink a little bit; however, most of it remains inside the countertop as well. A dual or universal sink can be mounted in both ways, from under the countertop or above it. The apron front sink is a large sink that is also known as a ‘farm sink’. It is different as the front area of the sink remains exposed so everyone can see it. The sink is meant to be easy to take out so that another can be put in its place; for this reason, it does not have any fixtures and the faucet is not a part of the sink either.
