Cabinet width – first of all, you must know the size/width of the sink cabinet, which has influence on your choice.
Our sinks are classified according to the minimum required cabinet width, namely 400, 450, 500, 600, 800, 900 and 1000 mm plus 900x900 mm corner cabinet. Smaller kitchen sinks can be accomodated by larger cabinets, but never vice versa. For instance, a sink dimensioned to fit a cabinet of 400 mm minimum width can also be installed into any cabinet exceeding the designated size.
Sink orientation – once you have determined the cabinet width, you have to determine orientation of the sink on the kitchen worktop. You can choose among left-hand, right-hand and reversible sink designs. Most of sinks are reversible, you need not to worry about the orientation upon your purchase, as you can turn the sink with its main bowl(s) according to your needs.
In the next step, you can choose among various materials (stainless steel or composite material), various installation types (inset, flush mount, flat mount, undermount or sit-on) and, various sink designs.
