Did you know a sink is one of the first things you have to have solidly picked out when starting a kitchen renovation? Plumbing wants to know where the sink is going to be. For cabinetry, you need to know how wide and what type of sink you’re going to use. When you choose a countertop–they are gonna want to know the dimensions of your sink for fabrication and what faucet you chose–they’ll probably even ask you for the serial number so they can get the measurements exactly! It kind of makes the saying “everything but the kitchen sink” a little ironic, because if you already have everything, chances are the kitchen sink was there first. Haha!
The Fullmers’ kitchen was no exception. We were showing them a bunch of sink options from Elkay long before choosing any of the other finishes. From apron front to under-mount, stainless, to quartz–and every size!!–there are so many really good options to choose from.
In our first home, we went with a deep, one-bowl sink and in our current home we have a double bowl sink. I like both for different reasons, but I think I might prefer the single-bowl better overall! (Would love to hear your thoughts on the matter!) I loved being able to lay a whole sheet pan or cutting board in the bottom to soak, wash, or, let’s be honest, hide from site for later.
Ultimately, the Fullmers’ chose something really similar! The Elkay Crosstown 16 Gauge Stainless Steel, 30-1/2″ x 18-1/2″ x 10″ Single Bowl Undermount Sink, with Elkay Crosstown 16 Gauge Stainless Steel, 30-1/2″ x 18-1/2″ x 10″ Single Bowl Undermount Sink to protect the sink bottom, and the Elkay Avado Single Hole Kitchen Faucet with Semi-Professional Spout in Lustrous Steel.
We captured a short, 1-minute video of the install and after’s so you can see these exquisite workhorses in action.
The sink has been a dream to use and it’s so easy to clean. Also! It’s insulated for less noise which has been nice with a newborn around the house.
The kitchen is all but wrapped up (we have a few finishing touches to tackle!), which is a good thing, because you may have seen on Instagram that the Fullmers’ had their baby a few weeks ago! Kelsi said a working sink would be the best thing to come home to–DONE AND DONE!
